    Rich from ON Asked

    Hi Joanne, we are from On as well so thought you may be best to answer our questions. We are trying to plan a Disney trip for May. Is this doable? Children are 8 and 6 and we have never been and I am overwhelmed.

    A big hello to my Ontario neighbour Rich! Please don't be overwhelmed! You're starting at the right place! May is an ideal time to visit Disney World! The weather is perfect, ranging between 65 and 88 degrees - that's between 18 and 31 in celsius for us! It's not quite as hot and humid as July and August, which to me is ideal. It's also a great time to go as crowds are often lighter given most school summer vacations start in June.

    You've got lots of time to plan. The first thing I'd do is choose your resort. Depending on how much you want to spend, you can choose from value, moderate and deluxe resorts. All are fantastic and offer a variety of amenities. My daughter loved the All Star value resorts when she was your children's age. She still does, but she had so much fun when she was younger. And you really can't beat the value. Be sure to check the Special Offers page on the Disney World website for the best deals. Currently, they are offering savings of up to 30% on resort rooms through June 2015. Regardless of which resort you choose, you'll enjoy the perks of being a Disney guest, including early morning and evening Extra Magic Hours, Magical Express service from and back to Orlando International airport, and all transportation on Disney property.

    You can then sort out how many theme park days you'll want to purchase park tickets for, what options, if any, you may wish to add, dining reservations and more.

    This should be plenty to get you started for now Rich. Write back with any other questions and we'll help you plan your magical vacation!
