Peak season for dining in 2013

Does anyone know what the dates are that are considered peak season and which restaurants charge more? I am assuming it would be the character meals and buffets, but dont want to call to ask about each and every ADR I have planned. TIA

They never announce these dates.

They apparently have been following the peak seasons for the dining plan, which are announced. For 2013 these are:

February 14 - 23, 2013
March 8 - April 6, 2013
May 31 - August 3, 2013
December 13 - 31, 2013

The peak pricing applies to all Disney-operated fixed price restaurants (all the ones that charge one price per person rather than having a menu with separate prices for each item). Not just buffets or character meals.

I called a while back asking about the summer dates, and I was told Friday, June 7th is the start date. Price example I was given: Ohana 36.20/18.10 on 6/7 = 42.59/20.23.

That is incredibly helpful. Thank you Rustyscupper! I show up on the 9th this year. It looks like all those options are eliminated for me now, I refuse to pay any peak charges.

Thanks so much RustyScupper - your post is really helpful.

Do you know if the cheaper off-peak prices you have quoted will still apply during late Sep/early Oct?
