Things to know about Mobile Ordering at Walt Disney World

Mobile Ordering started at Walt Disney World about three years ago in some select locations, and it rapidly expanded to many locations at all four theme parks.

You access the option through My Disney Experience, the phone app that helps you manage your itinerary, reservations, Fastpasses, etc. Here are some things you should know about Mobile Ordering at Walt Disney World.

Mobile Ordering at Walt Disney World

Quick Service Food Tool: In a nutshell, mobile ordering at Walt Disney World is an order and pay tool for quick service food locations. It’s designed to give you an option other than waiting in line. This is great when you want to make the best use of your time – or have kids who are hangry, so a food line isn’t ideal.

Stake out the Dining Room: You can find your table and order without leaving until it is time to pick it up. Mobile order is not available at table service restaurants or at kiosks.

Alerts From Mobile Order Restaurants: You can set up notifications in your My Disney Experience app so that you get an alert when you are in range of a meal or snack location that accepts Mobile Order. Turn on recommendations under Mobile Device Notifications On your profile.

You Can Use the Dining Plan: If you are on a Disney Dining Plan, Mobile Order is compatible with that, so you don’t have to pay out of pocket if you have snack or meal credits. Otherwise, you need to pay with a credit card. Currently the tool is not equipped to take payment via the magic band or Disney Gift cards.

Mobile Order Uses Your Location: Your food is not prepared until you are within a certain range of the location, so you don’t have to worry about the food going cold on the counter or drying under a heat lamp.

Separate Pick-up: By using mobile order, you skip the line to order and pay. There is sometimes a line at the mobile order pick up and sometimes not.

Order is Ready: You receive notifications after your food is ready, but you can usually pick up before the notification goes out. Be sure to have your app handy at pick up to answer any questions regarding your order.
