    Please help. Will exchange AP voucher for AP pass in July and want to buy TIW to use for dining. Already made reservations bcs was told to do that and buy TIW card at park and would be able to use it. Today was told had to reserve dining under TIW card.?

    Hi Jerry,

    I'm not sure where you heard this information, but it is false.

    I have had and extensively used the Tables in Wonderland card for four years. I have never once mentioned the TiW card in advance of arriving at the restaurant. You don't have to make reservations mentioning the TiW card. In fact, I have never even been asked about this when making reservations. I've also used the TiW card many times when walking up to a restaurant.

    The only thing you should do is mention the TiW card to your server when you're actually seated at the table. This prevents her from having to run the bill twice, and even that is a courtesy to the server, not an absolute requirement.

    I have purchased my TiW card and annual pass on the same day and used the TiW card moments later with no problems at all.

    In my opinion, access to the TiW card is one of the very best benefits of having an annual pass. I hope you enjoy it too.

    Please let us know if you have any more questions or need any clarification on this topic.
