Whether you’re on the Disney Dining Plan or not, you’re going to want to take advange of mobile ordering to save a LOT of time waiting in line for food.
Mobile ordering is a way to save time at Disney World, especially when the parks are busy. You can skip the line to order food at the counter by ordering on your mobile device. You can pay using your credit/debit card or using your Disney Dining Plan credits.
When you arrive at the restaurant, you let them know you’re there and then you can find a table while they prepare your food. They’ll send you a notification when it’s ready! It’s so easy and such a time saver – especially if you can order everyone’s food while you’re already waiting in line for a ride! Here’s how it works.
How to Use Disney World Mobile Ordering
Download the App
To use mobile ordering, you just download the My Disney Experience app. (If possible, you’ll want to do this at home before your leave or in the hotel room)
Choose Your Restaurant
Open the app and find the ‘My Plans’ section and tap on ‘Order Food’. Tap on the restaurant you want and press the “Order Food” button. (If you need help choosing a restaurant, here are some of our favorites!)
Select Food and Customize
Select your food from the menu – you can see all the prices and whether or not it qualifies for the dining plan right there on the app. You can make all kinds of customizations. If your kids will be eating the same meal, just build the order once and then select a quantity of ‘2’.
You can pay using the app with your card on file or the Disney Dining Plan.
Arrive at the Restaurant
When you arrive at the restaraunt, just click “I’m Here, Prepare My Order” and they’ll start preparing the food.
Pick Up Your Food
They’ll send you an alert when your order is ready. You’ll pick up your food at the “Mobile Order Pick Up” window, avoiding the line for ordering food.
Have you ever used mobile ordering? We used it on our last trip and LOVED it! We could decide what we wanted to eat in air conditioning. Then I could find a table with the kids while my husband picked up the food. It’s basically FastPass+ for food and it was magical.
