New at Walt Disney

Here is something Disney emailed me this morning that they are doing now at the Animal Kingdom park. It sounds like a pretty neat idea, especially if you have the dining plan(which I highly recommend).
Enjoy a Picnic in the Park at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park


Your Clients on the Disney Dining Plan now have a new way to use their Quick Service Meal entitlements at Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park: The new Picnic in the Park option lets them take their adventure a step further by dining in the wild!

Each Picnic in the Park is packaged in an "Every Tree Has Character" reusable bag, and includes plates and utensils so Guests may enjoy their meal at one of the many picnic spots in the Park. Meals include a choice of entrées, side dishes, desserts and bottled water. Your Clients may select their entrées from one of two tiers:

•Tier 1 features a choice of chicken wrap, ham grinder, tuna pita or turkey focaccia sandwich for each member of the party.
•Tier 2 offers a choice of rotisserie chicken or ham.
Depending on the number in the party, your Clients may select from one or more the following side dishes: chips, coleslaw, corn medley, green beans, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, orzo pasta, oven-roasted potato wedges, seasonal fruit salad, or tomato and cucumber salad.

Dessert options include an apple, orange, brownie, cookie, cornbread or crisped rice treat.

Guests may order a Picnic in the Park at a podium located at Guest Relations in the front of Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, or at Tusker House Restaurant. Picnic in the Park is available for same-day orders only. Orders must be placed at least two hours prior to the desired pick-up time. Payment will be due upon pick-up of the order at Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery in the Africa region of the Park.

Pricing for Tier 1 begins at $24.99 USD plus tax for three Guests. Pricing for Tier 2 begins at $29.99 USD plus tax for three Guests. Prices vary by party size. Guests on the Disney Dining Plan will need to use one adult Quick Service Meal entitlement per Guest (e.g., a meal for three requires three adult entitlements).



  1. hey Jeremy. I'm thinking Brannon and I may need to go on a cruise the 1st or 2nd week of August. Is this a good or bad time to go? is it too hot? Can you search for any deals that may be going on at that time. We did royal car last time and went to the Bahamas. I heard carnival was a bit more of a party boat. Fill me in please.

  2. Good Morning AM. It is hot just about year round down there, but the good news is there is alway's an ocean breeze. That time frame will be right on the edge of peak season. Each cruise line is a little different but usually around 8/15 everything comes down dramatically. It all hinges on when the kids are in school. Yes Carnival is a party cruise. I have some guests who love Carnival, but most who have done a Carnival and RC prefer the RC, but like them both. How long are you wanting to be gone? Anywhere in particular you want to go?
    Thank you!
