  1. #1
    If you had to choose between September for free dining and maybe halloween or christmas with no free dining but all the christmas celebrations which would you choose?

    Christmas. We eat offsite a lot to try different places so free dining doesn't interest us.

    Christmas for us too. We don't really like the dining plan, free or not (well not REALLY free since it forces you to buy at rack rate)

    I personally prefer the October time frame because of the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, with the Christmas season running a close second. Have never used the free dining.

    Ooooh, tough one. My two favorite times of year! I'd say, if you were willing to come during the very hectic Christmas season (although the weeks leading to Christmas are not as busy as the week of) and plan accordingly (longer lines, ADRs for any table meal, etc.) I'd say Christmas. It's an incredible time to be here.

    Christmas or Halloween definitely - we have been in October the last two times and I love that time of year and I would also love to be there at Christmas

    Early to mid-December is my favourite time at WDW. Just watch the rates--the dates for holiday season change annually.

    Second would be Halloween, although I'm not particularly interested in MNSSHP. But it's a shade cooler than September.

    Probably never will try September/early October again. It's still too humid for these dry, desert bones!
