- Hi William!
I think the best time of year to visit is August/September. I typically like to visit during Labor Day weekend, but I think that August 3-8 will be your best bet for crowds, rates and weather.
You can find historical data on all of the Walt Disney World packages at mousesavers dot com. This is a great resource for finding when promotions, such as free dining, have been offered in the past. Of course, just because it has been offered during that time previously doesn't mean it will be offered at that same time again, but it does provide you a good guideline.
Historically, Walt Disney World has offered free dining during the "Value" season, which is late August/September.
I hope you have a magical vacation!
