School Holidays

Anyone know when the schools return AFTER the summer holiday?

is ths latter half of August a good idea for the Disney packages? I'm told the queues can be horrendous.

Many thanks for your help.

If you mean the UK schools, most return from 2nd September normally with the odd training day added on. Ours return 3rd September this year. Hope end of August isn't too horrendous as we are going then :). I've heard end of August is quieter than the beginning.

Welcome to the forum

Many of the US schools do start back by mid August. Several Northern States do not start til Begining of September

But over all, the last two weeks in August aren't awful, much better time to go than the First two weeks or any time in July :)

If you understand and Use the Free Fast Pass System, you never need to wait in a "horrendous" queue

Are you looking to book the Free Dining Offer ?

Through out the year Disney offers Free Dining. You book your Resort and Tickets and get all your Dining for Free

It is offered to UK residents more often then the rest of but the next round of offers will be announced soon. …disneyinternational.com/Special-Offers.asp…

Everyone from anywhere can book the Fall Free Dining when offered for Mid August - End of September ( and in recent years extended to include dates October - December ) Hopefully that will be announced sometime in Spring

If you book direct with Disney ( the US site ) www.disneyworld.disney.go.com you can Modify your reservation later when the Deal is announced

The end of August is a good time for queues, they really aren't too long. I have been several times at that time. You must be prepared for it to be really hot though with a daily heavy rain shower.
