How do I use Mobile Ordering at Disney
The 1st thing you have to do is make sure you have the my Disney Experience app on your phone and a credit card or your meal plan linked up.
Once you open the app you’ll see under My Plans an Order Food button. Click that!
Next select the location you want to order your meal or snack from.
Now it’s time to decide what you want to eat! This is a great thing to do while you’re waiting in line at a ride!
When you’ve got everyone’s order in you’ll need to look through the order before you click the purchase button.
After you click the purchase button you are not done. You still have another step. You’ll need to click the button I’m Here, Prepare my Order. (I like to do this as I’m walking to the restaurant)
When you arrive to the restaurant go to the Mobile Order sign. Tell them your name and you should have your food or snack within a few moments.
While you’re collecting the food the family can search for a table and you’ve just shaved off 15-20 mins to get in one more ride or family photo op!
Mobile Ordering for Allergy Friendly
Don’t worry if an allergies are part of your ordering. This breaks down lots of different scenarios, and you can easily view what’s available. If you don’t see your allergy listed, it’s best to talk directly with a Cast Member or chef about your dietary needs, but they do cover a lot with the app.
Mobile Ordering at Disney
This is a key feature for grabbing a quick bite, and a great way to use time waiting in lines to keep people occupied. Plus I find that it gives me a moment to look at the menu and figure out what I really want instead of feeling rushed to just pick something.
