If you ask me, one of the best advances in technology to enter the parks in recent years has been the ability to Mobile Order from your smartphone. Saving time by getting exactly what you want, without waiting in line, is so perfect for a busy park go-er. Now that the system has been fully integrated with online payment and use of the Disney Dining Plan credits, it’s hard to think there was room for improvement.
Now, my favorite feature is getting a makeover! Launching soon, the newest version of mobile ordering gives us a fresh and more streamlined look. Colorful icons and real photos of menu items are a few of the updates noticed at first glace. Once you place your order, guests will also be able to customize menu items to their liking and filter the menu for food allergies and dietary restrictions.
Both Disneyland and Walt Disney World have over 20 participating locations where you can use the Mobile Ordering feature. Simply log-in to your account and select the location you’d like to order from. Fill out what you’d like and customize your options. You can pay with your credit card or Disney Dining Plan credits (where applicable). You’ll be given a window of time when you can pick up your food order. Once you’re ready, tap “I’m Here” on your app to indicate you’ve arrived to pick up your order. You’ll receive a notification when your food is at the window. Easy peasy! No waiting in line with your starving kiddos. You can plan ahead while you’re waiting for your next FastPass, or while watching a parade.
The updated Mobile Ordering features are available now for the Disneyland App, and will be launching soon on the My Disney Experience App for Walt Disney World!
