Thank you very much Kathy. I was interested in hearing about this. It sounds like you really enjoyed it.

Did you happen to find out if they accept the Table in Wonderland 20% discount? I doubt it since its considered a counter service meal, but was curious.

Kathy that meal looks great. Did you get to pick the sides and desserts. Will they accept child credits with adult credits mixed? If you could find that out I would really appreciate it. This looks like something we would probably do.

Kathy thank you for the pics. I was debating about trying that in August but after reading your review I think that will definitely will.
I do have one question do you have to pick all the same sandwiches or can everyone choose their own? Just curious thanks!!!

Thanks for the post, Kathy! This looks like a great idea for our July trip. We do love Flame Tree BBQ so it will be hard to pick!!!

This is going on my list to try next month. It looks delicious....

Are the bags available to purchase other than with the picnic meal? I am a sucker for bags! If this one is exclusive to the picnic meal, it is all the more reason to try it out.

You can buy the bag by itself in the shops at WDW.

Thanks for the blog and the great pictures! When I first heard about this, I was wondering if the picnic area had tables - silly, I know. But you cleared that up - looks like a great idea on Disney's part!

This is a great idea, especially for families!

I really like it when Disney thinks outside the box like this. We will definately try this when we go in May!

I replied in Facebook, but I think my idea bears repeating here.

I thought that people who stay in DVC villas could really benefit from this, especially if they're staying at AKLV, since it's so close to the park. You can buy a chicken meal for more than your actual party size and head back to your villa. Any leftovers can go into the fridge.

Thanks!

I wish they had a meal for two. That is alot of food for a couple.

Maybe I could find a solo traveler to join us for lunch.

Are people who did not buy the picnic allowed to eat at the picnic tables?
