How to Mobile Order Food at Disney

First, you need to have a smart device. A phone, iPod, or similar device with internet access are going to be the easiest thing to bring with you, and use, so make sure you have them on your person.

Set Up Your Profile

Once the app is downloaded, you will need to have an active profile. An active profile is one that has all of the pertinent information filled out, including linking your resort reservation (if applicable), tickets, billing address, and a credit card. That last step is crucial to being able to mobile order food at Disney.

Disney Dining Plan Now Accepted on Mobile Order

*NEW* since January of 2018 is the ability to use dining plan credits to pay for snacks, drinks, and quick service meals. There is always the option to pay with a credit card if you don’t want to use credits, but I highly recommend using credits first and paying out of pocket later. My family always ends up with one too many snack credits at the end of our trip because we forgot to use them!

How to Pick Up Your Mobile Order

My Disney Experience uses GPS to track your proximity to the restaurant from which you ordered. Once you get close to the restaurant, open the app and tap “I’m Here” to send your order to the kitchen.Tap I'm Here to process your mobile food order.

Depending on how busy the restaurant is, you may be waiting anywhere from 5 minutes to 15 minutes for your food. However, this is much preferable to standing in line (especially with kids) for that amount of time. My family usually grabs a table to rest our feet while we wait for our food to be prepared.Preparing your food while you sit instead of waiting in line!

Finally, the app will let you know when your food is ready! Head to the “Mobile Order” pick up window and grab that grub! You may see people standing in line around the Mobile Order window, but that is really unnecessary. Sometimes Cast Members will call your name or order number, and you can just skip the crowd and grab it when called. Easy peasy!
