The CM I confirmed it with on the phone said she did not see this in the policy & the one I chatted with did not have access to it but insisted that it would be a buffet because there is no other option at Biergarten. I went as if I were booking it again just to see if I misread. Nope, it still says the same thing under the policy. Does this only apply to certain restaurants such as Garden Grill (I don't see any others that are all-you-can-eat listed for the package)? Either way it doesn't matter much to me but I like to know things before I get there.

I'm actually beginning to rethink the whole package at this point & wonder if I should take my chances w/out one for a seat at one of his later shows to get the full effect in the dark. Just not sure if I'm willing to wait over an hour in line to do so.. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!
For NPH you will likely be waiting more than an hour. There was a thread last year that said people started lining up for him around noon. He is one of the narrators I would not take a chance in the SB line for.

That notice has been discussed here on the restaurant board before, it seems to cause a lot of confusion. While I don't see it in my ADR, I'm pretty certain that it refers to special meals, ie: kosher meals. It means that if the restaurant prepares a special plate for you, that special meal is not all you care to eat. If you eat from the regular buffet, it is still aycte.

Forgive my ignorance -but were the people lining up at noon the ones with dinner packages or without? I have a reservation confirmed for the final show on one of NPH's nights, and I'm wondering how early I'll have to get in line with the package - especially since 2 shows happen before that.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

The people lining up that early are those without dinner packages. With the package, 30-45 min should be fine.

Oh phew. Thanks for clarifying! (I'm one of those ridiculous types that try to line up early to get a good seat - but that's way early even for me!! )

I'm sorry for being off topic but I don't see where I can delete this post. I thought it did not post at first and then it showed up after I re-posted!

Ok, thanks! That makes more sense if it only applies to special requests.

I'm definitely excited to see NPH, even if it is for the first show. I'm looking forward to being able to include the dinner package in my budget & seeing it while it's dark out in the future as well!

When I went to book my reservations for CP, I couldn't find hardly any openings online. I decided to call. Glad I did. There were a whole bunch of options available that I couldn't pull up online and I was able to get a 6:00 show with Dennis Haysbert. Glad I called.

Btw, one of my options was with Sigourney. The CM told me that she has a reputation of canceling. Don't know the validity of that statement, but that's what she told me.

Mike,
Where/what time are you eating lunch or dinner to get the 6 something performance?
Just curious.....I was able to book a 12:30 lunch at RCP, which got us the 5pm performance with Dennis.
Interesting about Sig W. I'm sure if she bails, they will have a good backup performer.

Curious to see how the narrator line-up may change, but definitely hoping that Gary Sinese stays put. Was very (pleasantly) surprised to see him listed during the time we'll be there, as I thought he'd be more likely to narrate closer to Christmas. CP is one of the things I'm most looking forward to.

I'm so jealous of those of you getting to see Dennis Haysbert, his voice would make the telling of the Christmas story AMAZING. I could listen to him talk all night long. ENJOY! if you would happen to record it you could always post so the rest of us could enjoy that voice....just saying!

Biergarten is a buffet, and the CM is correct in saying it would be a buffet no matter what, even for the CP package.

What you are probably reading is the policy for ordering kosher and special dietary meals. Because WDW restaurants don't have kosher kitchens, these meals must be brought in from outside WDW already prepared. So they don't have the ability to offer all you can eat kosher meals, even in a buffet restaurant.

Not sure how they would know, as she's never done the CP before.
