For those that have booked a breakfast or lunch reservation at Magic Kingdom’s much-loved Be Our Guest restaurant, you already know that this restaurant is unique in that guests have the ability to order their food in advance using the My Disney Experience app and have it delivered to your table upon your arrival.
According to a recent post by Disney Parks Blog, it would seem that Walt Disney World Resort is developing this technology further and making plans to unveil online ordering at additional quick service restaurants across the resort. The Satu’li Canteen, an all new Quick Service Restaurant that will open as part of the Pandora:The World of Avatar expansion at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park this May will feature “Mobile Order” This will allow visitors to select their meals in advance and (unlike the Be Our Guest option) even pre-pay using the My Disney Experience app.
This means that guests can skip the long lines when they arrive at the restaurant. Instead visitors will press the “I’m here” button on the app when they are in the vicinity which will notify the kitchen to get the meal ready. Guests will then be alerted through the app when their food is ready and where they can go to pick it up.
Satu’li will be the first to employ this new technology but Disney hopes to release it at additional Walt Disney World eateries by the year’s end.
