With the official opening of Pandora – The World of Avatar, six weeks ago, Disney also unveiled a new bit of technology that was welcomed by Disney foodies- the ability to order your quick service meals from your mobile phones. Guests no longer have to brave the lines of hungry tourists and can instead use their My Disney Experience App to pre-pay for a meal, let the restaurant know when you’re ready to pick it up and when you arrive at your eatery of choice your order will be waiting for you at the pick-up window.
Disney World’s new Mobile Order option, was tested at Disney’s Satu’li Canteen earlier this Summer and is already winning over visitors. So much so that Disney has already added three additional Animal Kingdom eateries to the mix: Restaurantosaurus, Pizzafari and Flame Tree Barbecue. These locations are just the first in a phased roll-out that should see the Mobile Order options extended to the following locations across all four theme parks and Disney Springs:
- Magic Kingdom: Columbia Harbour House, Pinocchio Village Haus, Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe, Tortuga Tavern, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant.
- Epcot: Liberty Inn and Electric Umbrella
- Hollywood Studios: ABC Commissary and Backlot Express
- Animal Kingdom – Satu’li Canteen, Flame Tree Barbecue, Restaurantosaurus and Pizzafari
- Disney Springs: D-Luxe Burger
Visitor should note that the Mobile Order option is not currently available for guests with special dietary restrictions, guests wanting to pay in cash or those on the Disney Dining Plan.
