What You Should Know About Mobile Ordering

Before I start the regular article…just wanted to spoil the article and say that I absolutely LOVE Mobile Ordering at Walt Disney World! This saved me so much time during our 2017, 2018 2019 AND 2020 trips that it’s become one of my favorite tips to share!

In fact, the line for Satu’li Canteen was over 30 minutes JUST TO ORDER…and we ended up processing our mobile order while we were at the front door and ended up waiting around 5-10 minutes for the complete order to be ready.  #InsiderTip

After debuting in 2017, the My Disney Experience app is became your ticket to avoiding the lines at Quick Service restaurants at select locations on Disney World property. Think of it like an addition to the FastPass+ program, where you can review the menu and make selections before placing an order for a future time without even being in line.

This is a game-changer for anyone who had ever stood in line behind guests who just didn’t know what they wanted for every member of their extended family while all you wanted was a simple bacon cheeseburger meal! You’re able to do so much with this addition to your vacation, so let’s look at the features.

AVOID THE LINE

  • Open the My Disney Experience app
  • Tap on the image of your character, scroll down to “My Plans” and select “Order Food”
  • Pick and choose!

PAY USING THE APP

  • When your finished with your order, you’re able to review and then make your purchase directly using a credit card or debit card (not gift cards or if you’re getting a discount like Annual Pass)
  • You’re able to use your Disney Dining Plan quick service credits

LET THE APP ORDER FOR YOU

When you’re at the restaurant, open the app and then press the “I’m Here, Prepare my Order” button. Yes…that’s a real button and its MAGICAL! When the food is ready, you’ll receive a notification from the app and you’ll go to the “Mobile Order Pick Up” sign.

It’s also very familiar if you’ve utilized the mobile ordering feature from Starbucks, so keep that in the back of your mind when you’re going through the steps to learn about the new program.
