Parks full?

Going to Disney in May 2015 and thinking of going to parks in morning, going back to hotel for a bit then going again in evening for fireworks. Has anyone else done this and been turned away because the parks are full at night? Would it be better to go later in day and then stay? I believe May is pretty busy.

You don't seem to have a real risk to worry about

I couldn't envisage a park being at capacity in May - Christmas yes, Easter maybe but not May

Unlikely that parks would get to capacity in May unless there was something unusual going on. Your plan of going early, returning to your hotel in the heat of the day then returning in the evening for fireworks, etc., is an excellent one, and one I employed on all our visits when our children were little. :-D

You shouldn't have a problem in May-its not a peak time.

Yes, about the only times you have to worry about being turned away because of full capacity is any day during Xmas week, Easter week, and perhaps around 4th of July.

Otherwise, you'll be fine. It may still be somewhat crowded, but you'll get in.

The parks are not going to close in May. You may experience higher crowds if going around Memorial Day or if they do another 24 hour event like they did this year.
