In fact, this West Side sports bar is making it even easier for you to get some good grub on the go with the debut of online ordering! While City Works is most certainly a prime candidate for a great place to relax for a spell (and even catch a game on one of the 17 HDTV’s), this new option is available for guests looking for takeout dining.

Ever since Vera Bradley teamed up with Disney, our lives have been MUCH more colorful!
Their whimsical paisley patterns (with some of our favorite Disney characters snuck into their prints!) really put a smile on our faces! That’s why our pearly whites were BEAMING when we found out Vera Bradley has just released their newest Disney collections on their website!
That said, it’s the stop for a LOT of people, because our Polite friend is one popular Pig! So, if you’re looking to bypass the lines, you can now place your order online! Take note, though…
The online orders for World of Color picnics in Disneyland Resort’s Disney California Adventure theme park are up and running.
Picnics are $14.99 per meal, and offer some delicious variety (click on the link above for a great video about them!). Right now, you can order your picnic online for June 12th onward.

Disney’s been sampling how technology can enhance theme park dining for years. One of my earliest memories is stopping at the Epcot WorldKey under the golf ball to make dinner reservations via the talking head on the screen.
Today, Disney’s continuing to make progress in the information age. The recently launched online Advanced Dining Reservations system and the following tech-y installments are good examples.
You’ll recall a previous post on the Food Blog about the Contemporary Resort Contempo Cafe’s new computerized ordering system. It resembles the made-to-order (“MTO”) ordering system from my favorite gas station chain, Sheetz, and I thought it was fantastic when I got the chance to use it for the first time in February.
As it turns out, Disney’s been adding these ordering systems in several spots throughout the parks and resorts. I’ve got some photos from Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe in the Magic Kingdom and Captain Cook’s quick service restaurant in the Polynesian Resort, as well as the Contempo Cafe photos.
One tech advancement I’m very excited about is Wolfgang Puck Express’ online ordering system. While this isn’t a “Disney innovation,” it is a way to take advantage of technology when dining at Downtown Disney.
If you’re planning on heading to Wolfgang Puck Express in Downtown Disney’s Marketplace, simply visit their online ordering website in advance. No need to log in, just click on “browse menu” and set a date, then make your choices — even substitutions — online.
Even if you’re headed to Disney World in a few days, you can pre-order what you’d like for lunch when you arrive and have it waiting for you at Downtown Disney as soon as you land at MCO. Brilliant.
Where have you seen technology at work?
