    We are coming to Disney in a few weeks (Sept. 19-23) and I have read that this should be a relatively uncrowded time to visit. However, when I have tried to make dining reservations, many of the places I have tried have been full. Should I be worried?

    That depends on what you are worried about.  If it is an issue of crowding you're concerned about, then you can relax.  Based on many past trips to WDW in September, I can tell you that the crowds during this time period are relatively low.  If, on the other hand, you are worried about the ability to get dining reservations, then you might have cause for concern.  With the popularity of the free dining promotion that Disney offers during September, dining reservations can be hard to obtain.  If you wish to dine in any of the more popular restaurants, especially during peak dining times, you'll probably have little luck.  Your best bet at this point would be to try to get dining reservations for late or early meals.  Keep calling back as many people cancel dining reservations when they finalize their touring plans.  And if all else fails, do keep in mind that many of the counter service restaurants around WDW are good choices!

Given your inclination to plan a magical trip, I can already tell we have a lot in common. I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
