Thanks so much! As always I appreciate the info!

So tier 1 can be used with the dining plan only or is it 2 and three? Great idea... I am so excited about it!

There are only 2 tiers. You can use the dining plan for either tier.

We want to do this when we go in 2 weeks.

My question...there are 4 of us so will the picnic cost us 4 quick service credits or 1 quick service credits if we are on the DDP? I ask because they say picnic for a number of people for a cost.

I just called Tables in Wonderland and was told "no", you can't use the DDE/TIW card for the Picnic in the Park.

I have been wondering - what is keeping people from sitting on and using the picnic tables that are supposed to be reserved for the picnic in the park paying people? From the pictures, it looks as if anyone can just plop down there to rest or to even eat their own food that isn't from the picnic in the park . . .

Are there CM's there? Is the area roped off?

ETA: OK - I just listened to the whole podcast and heard the answer to this - the answer is nope - there is no way you are going to get a table during busy times. ha But the good news is like Pete said - you can always go to other places to eat like the regular tables outside of Tusker and the nice area by the water behind Flame Tree.

I am wondering this also, and as well as another poster asked if the tier one sandwiches can be individually ordered or does it have to all be the same?

Another question for you:

thanks.

This link has the sides you can choose. I think you can choose different sandwiches for tier 1.

You can't mix tiers within a group. If you had 6 people you could do it, but each tier starts with 3 people.

I like the idea, but won't be getting it the next time we go. My family is not that big on desserts, we'd rather have more sides. I wish we could substitute sides for desserts.

And what's with putting cornbread as a dessert (yeah, yeah I know it's usually sweet as cake but *still* it's CORNBREAD). I guess Disney thinks nothing says dessert like "cornbread" ?...

UPDATE: starting May 10 they will offer vegetarian choices. Portobello Mushroom and Vegetable Wrap on Tier 1, Tandoori Spiced Tofu and Zucchini Squash, a side dish available with either tier.
