As more and more restaurants have reopened, Mobile Order has basically become the new norm. So, gone are the days that you could go a day without your cell phone in the parks (did anyone ever do that though?!). Mobile Order lets you read through the menu in the My Disney Experience app, order, pay, and then be greeted with your meal ready to go when you arrive. The system certainly isn’t without flaws, but we’ve adapted to ordering our lunch from our little screens. And, today, we spotted a new feature at one of the restaurants as we were ordering.
We’ve said it already today, and we’ll say it again…HAPPY NEW YEAR!
But although 2021 isn’t even one day old at this point, at least one counter service location in Disney World is VERY ready to get a move on into the New Year. We found a Valentine’s Day Cupcake up for grabs — yes, ALREADY! — at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort! [Read more…]
And you know who else is excited that this spot has opened once again? As it turns out, pretty much EVERYBODY! We know this thanks to Mobile Order, which is a feature available to Walt Disney World guests on the My Disney Experience app that lets you pre-order and pre-pay for food at participating Counter Service locations in the parks and Resorts. Check out what we discovered when we were getting ready to order up some tasty Totchos today… [Read more…]
Yes, it’s officially autumn. And yes… it’s also just over 90 degrees in Disney World’s Magic Kingdom today.
So, as you can imagine, we were in search of a nice, cold cup of ice water during our visit! Typically, many counter service locations offer cups of ice water by request. However, in some cases you’ll notice that things have changed… though, the MAIN thing hasn’t: you CAN still get free ice water in the Disney World theme parks. However, we wanted to give you a little heads up on the process for your next visit. [Read more…]
Things have been a little wonky when it comes to dining in Disney World today.
This morning, we noticed that Mobile Order was unavailable on the My Disney Experience app. We’ve been keeping an eye on how different quick service restaurants have handled the interruption today, but now it looks like the technical difficulties have been resolved.
We’ve been keeping track of ALL the dining updates in a reopened Disney World.
From the new Mobile Dine Walk-up Waitlist feature to Table Service To Go options in the existing Mobile Order function, the My Disney Experience app has seen some expansions when it comes to mobile dining. Today, it appears that Mobile Order experiencing some technical difficulties.
We’ve seen some BIG changes in Disney World since reopening that have greatly altered the parks as we once knew them.
Since Disney World has been continuing forward with its health and safety initiatives, high-touch surfaces have been reduced in the parks and capacity has been limited. Mask requirements, temperature checks, and more are completely new, but there have been some big virtual changes as well.
One of the ways Disney World will be encouraging guests to reduce contact upon reopening is by utilizing the Mobile Order service at eligible quick-service restaurants.
But for table service restaurants, Disney World has added a new feature to its My Disney Experience app called Mobile Dine Check-In so that once you arrive for your dining reservation, you can bypass the host stand. Let’s see it in action!
Now there are even more ways to take advantage of Mobile Order at Disney World!
For years, Mobile Order has allowed guests to use the My Disney Experience app to pre-order and pre-pay for their food at select quick-service locations. Yesterday, we shared that they had added a new pick-up time feature to Mobile Order. Now, they have added new payment options.
Here at DFB, we love sharing all our tips and tricks on how to make your Disney World vacation extra magical.
But, even though we’ve practically become pros now, we’ve experienced a LOT of mishaps over the years. While part of the fun is the learning process, there are definitely some decisions we regret making during our own trips to the parks!
