We (me60, DH60, DD28, DD22) will be touring WDW mid-May this year. We toured WDW in April 10 years ago, and I don’t recall the heat being a problem. But I’ve read a couple of posts that said May starts to get very hot, and I’m wondering if I should adjust my TP for the heat.
We currently are using the late arrival two-day Epcot touring plans which have us arriving at 11AM and doing the rides first (11 to 1ish) and then touring the world showcase. I understand that the best solution would be to start touring right at RD. However, I’ve promised DD22 - who is not a morning person-- no early morning starts. We aren’t doing any TS as we want to ‘drink and snack around the world’, although I am planning to include stops in La Cava de Tequilla or similar air-conditioned lounges.
My question is whether I should keep the touring plans as is and trust we can find enough coolness in the pavilion shops/etc or adjust it so that we are touring the Future world rides around 2 to 4ish? This would mean a bit more walking/backtracking but would put us in air-conditioning during the hottest part of the afternoon. Unfortunately, it would also turn a very leisurely, go with the flow plan into something a lot more orchestrated.
So, would you try to get FPP for mid-afternoon to avoid the heat? Or do you have other tips for managing Epcot when it is hot? Or is mid-May not yet brutal heat-wise?
