Mobile Ordering Coming to Select Disney World Resorts

Mobile ordering is amazing and convenient. My family and I use it in our everyday lives at places such as Chic-Fil-A, Starbucks, Chipotle, Panera, etc. Why wait in line when you know what you want? I always get the stink eye from people waiting in a long line, when I breeze past them and pick up my Bacon Gouda breakfast sandwich and Blonde Roast in the morning. Sorry people, you can do it too! LOL!

Our Experience with Mobile Ordering

Last year we started doing mobile order at Disney Parks and it was a lifesaver (read more about it – Mobile Ordering at Disney World Quick Service Restaurants). The last trip we had an 8 and 3-year-old, and lines when you are hungry are no fun. We would literally be waiting in line for a ride, about to board the ride vehicle, and we’re looking at the menu. As soon as we got off the ride, we placed the order for what we wanted and started walking towards the restaurant. By the time we arrived, our food was nearly ready at the mobile order pick-up window. We utilized this feature at places such as Pinocchio’s Tavern and Columbia Harbor House in the Magic Kingdom, Flame Tree BBQ at Animal Kingdom, and ABC Commissary at Hollywood Studios. There are so many quick service locations that do mobile ordering, be sure to check Disney’s website in advance so you can plan.

Guess what? Now, Disney is adding the ability to use Mobile Ordering at Select Disney World Resorts! This will help cut down on the lines in the busy quick service locations during the peak meal period. The only way I wouldn’t use mobile ordering, is if I wanted to stand there and watch someone prepare my food with me picking out options. I’m excited to say that Disney Park’s blog has unveiled that some of the resorts soon to take on mobile ordering are: “Pop Century’s: Everything Pop, The Mara at Animal Kingdom, and Contempo Café at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.”

Can’t wait to try it out!

My family and I frequently stay at Pop Century and we are planning another visit in just a few short months. We will be trying the mobile ordering, more than likely for breakfast, prior to entering the parks. This will help with getting everyone fed and ready in the morning, before embarking on an exciting adventure in the parks.

Using the My Disney Experience App for Mobile Ordering

On our last adventure to Disney World, we had the pleasure of experiencing Mobile Ordering.  We usually do the Deluxe Dining Package, but on our last trip, we decided to go with the Quick Service plan, and we took advantage of it!  We did the mobile ordering in every park except for Epcot as it is not as integrated in that park just yet.  We also really like D-Luxe Burger in Disney Springs, so we were excited to see that they were the only location in Disney Springs that offered Mobile Ordering. While it is a great program to take advantage of in Disney World, it can be a little confusing.  It is not that hard to place an order, but knowing what to do, when to do it, and where to go can be a little confusing the first few times.  Here is a step-by-step guide to using the My Disney Experience App for Mobile Ordering.

Step by Step Instructions for Mobile Ordering at Disney World

  1. Login to the My Disney Experience app on your phone. Once logged in, click on “Order Food” under the “My Plans” tab on the app’s main screen.
  2. Next, you will see a list of participating restaurants where you will then be able to select the restaurant you want to order from.
  3. Once you select a location, you will be taken to the restaurant’s page where you will see “Order Food.”
  4. The next screen will take you to the menu where you will be able to choose any items that you wish to add to your cart.  Select and modify everything you want.
  5. Once complete, you will click on the bag on the top right corner to review and submit your order.  Make sure everything is correct and then submit your order to the restaurant.
  6. On your way over to the restaurant, go back into the app and let them know to start your order.  Head into the restaurant and look for a table and wait for them to let you know it’s ready.
  7. Once your order is ready, you will receive a notification on your phone.  Go over to the Mobile Order pick-up window and get your food. 

Don’t be that guy…

Please do not send your order and then go and stand in the pick-up window.  There are so many people that think that since they placed the order that it will be ready right away, so there can be large crowds packed around the pick-up window.  Don’t be that guy!  I promise you, as soon as your food is in the window, you will get an alert on your phone letting you know that it is ready!
