Need some advice for 2014. Torn between possible free dining in sept but better weather in Oct. Want to visit water parks. Two families with a 3yo and 6mth old each. So, Oct or Sept 2014?

So far I've only visited WDW in September & October. My preference, by far, is October! September is just way too humid for my taste (remember, I am from Seattle)!!! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1453.0 #3 9:10PM
Agree! - mrsincredible  1323.7 #4 3:47AM
Unless you are going to do character dinning or table services every day stick with the discount and not free dinning. The quick service you pretty much break even or you can eat a little cheaper without. - mmddgp  1092.5 #7 10:59AM
Good to know! We will be skipping the character meals for sure. I'd never purchase dining plan, but free would be nice. I'm always such a money tight ass, it would allow me a little more dining freedom - timonT  422.1 #21 11:21AM
Same here. I have never purchased it either. Only took it when it was free. We take our 6 grandkids so it is a much better deal free than the hotel discount. - mmddgp  1092.5 #7 11:41AM
October has more magic in the airsnd less people in the parks - capnsparrows  565.9 #16 9:11PM
October it has the best weather but if your looking to save money sept because the free dinning is such a life savor - mikesbabygirl711  14.0 #210 3:49AM
We go in September or October and we like September better. The free dining has more dates its less crowded and being southern we are used to the gross hot weather so we didn't notice a difference in it in those 2 months. I did notice this year in October free dining was blocked out from 2-18 just like last year. - girlonfire  54.1 #103 4:24AM
Are there sometimes free dining dates in Oct as well? - timonT  422.1 #21 7:36AM
Yes they have date in Oct and Nov! - girlonfire  54.1 #103 9:07AM
Awesome! I think I'm pretty set on October now. Researched holidays and events and I think I've picked a week. Now DH just has to get it off, lol! We have to request vacation a year in advance! - timonT  422.1 #21 9:21AM
Just don't plan in the weekend of Oct 17~20 many schools are off and I found it to be more busy than Labor day weekend..but still not as bad as spring break or summer! Happy planning! - justGoofin  162.4 #56 6:23AM
Is that 17-20 for 2013 or 2014? - timonT  422.1 #21 7:57AM
Never mind, I found dates for 2014, our state is one that does the fall break - timonT  422.1 #21 8:02AM
Florida will have that long weekend around that date every year! MNSSHP was sold out..and the resort was crazy. We went labor day weekend thinking it would be about the same..but it was actually quieter! - justGoofin  162.4 #56 9:45AM
Both are good months . If your trying to save money , then go in Sept . If not , Oct won't be as humid weather wise . Can't go wrong either way !!!!!! - skcanfield  586.4 #14 6:27AM
Do they still have Tables in Wonderland card? We opted for that one year because discount was better than free dining with getting rooms and tixs separately. AP discounts were applied. TiW gets you 20% off meals. It used to cost $75 with discount. If you used it 6 days + great value. - jacdanfan  12152.5 #6 7:13AM
We won't have APs this visit. My Uncle always gets the TiW card, I'll have to ask him about it. We eat mostly QS, would it still help us then? - timonT  422.1 #21 7:35AM
Not sure. May be table service only. - jacdanfan  12152.5 #6 8:19AM
Thanks everyone, exactly what I was looking for. While we're in AZ and used to the heat, our dry 100 is MUCH different than a humid FL 90! - timonT  422.1 #21 7:38AM
