Free Dining and September Crowds

“Hi Dad! We are thinking about going to Disney in September 2019 and looking at your crowd calendar, it seems like a great time to go. Do you think the free dining offer will affect the crowds any for that month?”

Dad Answers

Hi Sherry,

September has the lowest crowds of the year. It has for as long as I can remember. It’s a really good time to visit Walt Disney World.

Will Free Dining increase the crowds in September?

Free Dining has been around for around 10 years. We have a pretty good picture of what it does to the crowds.

Dad’s Bottom Line

Sherry, unless something crazy happens, I don’t expect any major uptick in crowds over what we normally see. September should still be low crowds even with Free Dining (which we figure in to our calendar).
