Have any of you ever been to WDW when they are offering free dining? We are going week after next and I am a little panicked that it will be way too crowded!!! Our last visit was in mid-October and perfect.

Hi, Martha! I was in Disney in August during Free Dining, and the crowds were quite manageable. Just stick to the basic rules: get to the parks early and use FastPass to avoid lines when possible.
I will tell you that restaurants were booked to capacity! To get the most out of your Dining Plan (and even if you are NOT on the Dining Plan and paying out of pocket) it is very important to make your Advance Dining Reservations before you leave for your vacation.
Booking your Advance Dining Reservations can be done on-line or by calling (407)WDW-DINE. It will just take a short time to book and will save you a lot of time searching for a restaurant when you are ready to eat.
Have a great time on your vacation!
