Guests will be able to place an order at the Picnic in the Park podium located in front of Guest Relations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, operated from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. daily. After that time, or if the Guest has decided to get their picnic pack after they’ve ventured into the Park, they may go directly to the podium at Tusker House Restaurant to place their order.
Pick-up time needs to be at least two hours from the time the order is placed, and Guests should bring their copy of the order form as confirmation. Payment is due upon pick-up of the order. The pick-up location is at Kusafiri Coffee Shop & Bakery.
If Guests are 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. Click here to view brochure
the concept of a picnic implies that the folks would be able to set down in place where now they currently would not.
Additionally the way the part is set up now they minimize the amount of non-green material used in serving food to make it more animal friendly.
I am wondering what including "utensils", Chip bags, a large. small side containers do to this. I would think the bags, plastic silver, etc might increase some of that risk. (I'd guess the sides could use cardboard packaging to make it bio-degradable, as long as folks don't expect it to last for hours.
If any one tries this, I'd like to know how it is handled and works out.
Sounds like it could be a fun way to manage a meal.

If you click the Source link, there are photos at the bottom of the page... You know this is not a bad deal. It could cost mrsguru and myself more than $25.00 for similar lunch offerings without desert at various counter services. This way you get even more food for approx the same price....
May need to try this out next time we are at DAK! _________________ Up or Down North, South, East, or West An Adventurer's Life is Best!
Okay, maybe I'm just being dumb, but exactly where is there picnic space in AK? And when it gets real hot or one of the infamous downpours start, then what? I think the concept is neat, but it doesn't fit the location. _________________ "Hold onto to your hats and glasses cuz' this here's the wildest ride in the wilderness."
We did the Picnic twice this summer, once for the sandwich option and the second was the roasted meat option. The sandwich is the better of the two options, actually more food for a lesser price. It is actually better than some of the counter services in the parks, it was a really good deal... I do hope this comes back, I would love to do it again! _________________ Up or Down North, South, East, or West An Adventurer's Life is Best!
I've never had it but have wanted to give it try. We don't head over to AK very often so it's not been an option for us. Glad it will be seasonal at least. It doesn't appear that there was much advertising for it in the park. I was there a few days before Christmas, but also had my youngest sis in tow so we were more focused on getting onto EE and Dinosaur
