[B]My jury is still out on this one. :laugh: Although, I guess a ‘family of 2’ doesn’t exist with this option. I think Daniel and I would totally try it because we haven’t been thrilled with counter service options in the AK park since Tusker House closed as a CS. Not sure I would use 3 credits just to create an invisible friend in our party. :laugh: Anyone want to join us for a picnic in AK this June?
Took this from Allears:

NOTE: No modifications or substitutions are allowed.
Guests with food allergies should alert the Cast Member when placing their order, who will then contact a chef.
Place your order at the Picnic in the Park podium located in front of Guest Relations at Animal Kingdom, between 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. daily. After that time, or if you decide to get a picnic pack after you’re in the park, go directly to the podium at Tusker House Restaurant to place the order.
Pick-up time needs to be at least two hours from the time the order is placed, and you’ll need to bring the copy of the order form as confirmation. The pick-up location is at Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery.
Payment is due upon pick-up of the order. If you’re on the Disney Dining Plan, Picnic in the Park may be used as a Quick Service Meal (requires one adult entitlement per meal amount). For example, a meal for three will require three adult entitlements.
