    We usually travel to Disney world the middle of September, not the the food and wine fest dates were extended what does that do for the free dining plan being offered at the time and the size of the crowds which are usually low at this time? Please help!!!

    Hi Keely,

    Touring the Walt Disney World Resorts in September is great with low crowds and cooler weather!

    As always, there are no guarantees that Disney will offer Free Dining at any time during the year. This is a special offered throughout the year.

    With the extension of Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, you will see an increase in crowds on the weekends. However, with children still in school, the weekdays should still be less crowded. Crowds are busiest the first weekend as well as all weekends with local Floridians enjoying the event. The festival is a great way to explore Epcot with food as the main attraction. There are really fun events and delicious foods to try.

    If this is the only time you can travel, I would still head to the Walt Disney World Resorts.

    Wishing you a magical day!
