Today, Disney has announced that the fantastic Mobile Food Order service will be coming to select Disney World resort hotels. This feature originally debuted alongside Pandora at Disney's Animal Kingdom in May of 2017. Guests can use the My Disney Experience app to per-order their food at select quick service restaurants, bypass the line and pick up their food once the app alerts them that it's ready. It's a very efficient and convenient service that saves time and energy. Mobile Food Order is currently available at nearly all the quick service restaurants within the four main theme parks. The only exceptions are most of the quick service locations around World Showcase at Epcot. But the service will now be extending into the resort hotels.
Over the coming months, you’ll be able to do just that as we expand the popular mobile order food service to additional restaurants at Disney Resort hotels, including: Everything POP Shopping & Dining at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, The Mara at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Contempo Café at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.
It is unclear which exact locations will offer the service, but I think we can assume that over time, nearly all the hotels will include this. It will make life so much easier especially for those who like to rope drop in the mornings. You'll be able to pre-order you food from you room, quickly make a stop at the restaurant and then get a jump start on your day. The feature is also fantastic for those with allergies because those locations that offer allergy-friendly menu items, come up on the app as well. A simpler way to browse your options without holding up the line or feeling rushed. If you're on the Disney Dining Plan, the app also helps you keep track of all the snack and meal credits you've redeemed and what you have left to use. Of all the technology updates Disney as rolled out in the past couple of years, this one is certainly the best and we welcome the addition of the feature to the hotels.
