News: Mobile Order Arrives at Hollywood Studios with Backlot Express

Hollywood Studios is now offering Mobile Order!

This process, which debuted at Animal Kingdom’s Satu’li Canteen in May, gives guests the opportunity to to pre-order and pre-pay for meals at select Counter Service locations around Disney World via the My Disney Experience app. Once you arrive at the restaurant? You simply notify the restaurant of your arrival on the app and go straight to pick up your food! (You can learn about how the entire process works from start to finish here.)

The process has rolled out at Counter Service restaurants across Animal Kingdom, Magic Kingdom, and Epcot. And yesterday, the fourth and final park — Hollywood Studios — joined the lineup, starting with Backlot Express!

It’s anticipated that ABC Commissary and PizzeRizzo will appear on the Mobile Order list soon.

Also recently, another Epcot restaurant was added to the list: Liberty Inn.

At this time, Mobile Order can only accept credit cards for payment (no Disney Dining Plan payment options yet, but it will be added in the future). Also, Mobile Order cannot process any eligible discounts — at least for now. But with the list of participating restaurants starting to fill out, we look forward to receiving updates on this hopefully in the near future, and we’ll keep you posted!

If you are curious to learn more about Mobile Order, or view a list of all participating locations, be sure to head over to our Mobile Order page!
