[QUOTE=MissDisney;1101138]I’m concerned about going during free dining. The dining plans don’t work for us, so there is no financial benefit to us. And I worry that crowded restaurants may mean lower quality on the dishes and rushed atmosphere.[/QUOTE]
We went the second week of September last year, and there was no free dining. The next week started free dining in which my Brother and his wife went. In comparing crowds, it was night and day. Our week, totally empty. Longest wait was 10 minutes, while Brother was astonished at the crowds for September, not being able to walk up to any restaurant, and long lines for the rides. He said he would never go during free dining again. Not worth it.
