    We are looking to book a vacation next year 2013, I was hoping to pick a month that free disney dining is offered, I've been told September is one month but don't want to take my son out of school that soon, do you know of any other months its offered?

    Hi Connie!  Disney's Free Dining offer is one of the most popular promotions offered when booking a Walt Disney World vacation!  There is no certainty as to when it will be offered, although historically, it has been offered in the late August/September months.  There have been instances where it has been extended to October and early December.  FD is rarely offered during the typical school vacations (Spring Break, Presidents week, Winter recess) as these are peak attendance times at the parks.  In the past years, Free Dining has been offered in late August.  Perhaps you should consider going during this time, in particular, the week before Labor Day.  The crowd levels begin to lower, as most people are preparing to go back to school.  My family and I have always found this time to work best for our vacations.  The kids feel they have had time to play and enjoy themselves before the "real work" begins.  Hope this helps you plan your magical Disney vacation! -Malanie
