    we want to travel at the end of august, i was told there is a free meal plan. I was wondering if it would be a good time for weatrher and crowds. Our family consists of two adults and two kids 9 and 9 months.

    Hi Sohail!  The latter part of August is a great time to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth.  I speak from experience as it is the only time my family and I are able to visit at that time, and we've been able to enjoy the best of the parks.  Disney released a Free Dining promotion for August 25-September 29th.  This is a usual time for Disney to release a promotion as most families return home to begin their pre first day of school activities, and the crowds begin to thin,  It's a great incentive for people to visit!  We have found that the longest wait times are for those ever popular staples such as Soarin', Rock n' Roller Coaster, Splash Mountain, etc., but never any longer than 45 minute waits. 

    The weather is of course, summer weather.  You may be looking at highs near 95 degrees.  But thankfully, nearly everywhere in WDW is air conditioned, so you can enjoy a respite from the sun, especially for your little ones!

    Hope this helps you decide when to take that magical trip!

Hi there! The Disney Parks have been a part of my life since I was a little girl.
