One of my biggest pet peeves was always having to wait in a HUGE line for a “quick service” meal. It hardly felt like “quick service” when I had to stand in line for 15 minutes just to order. Yes, you can avoid the lines if you don’t eat lunch at 12 or dinner at 5, but what happens if I’m hungry at noon? Now I can order it from my phone and avoid those lines!
At select Walt Disney World quick service locations, you can pre-order your meal on the My Disney Experience app right from your smartphone. I had the opportunity to try it when we ate at Satu’li Canteen in Pandora at Animal Kingdom and I have to say – I LOVE it!
Technology is a great thing – when it works. I was a little hesitant trying this since there wasn’t much of a line and I was really hungry, but thought I’d give it a go for research purposes!
It allowed me to select my sides, sauces etc.
So far so good.
Payment was done right on my Visa that is linked in my Disney account.
When you select the “I’m Here, Prepare My Order” option – they start preparing your meal.
Then you wait….
The notification was in the app – but it also gave me an ‘alert’ notification on my iPhone too!
And lunch was served! It was a great experience, no lines.- quick food. What more could I ask for? Maybe that they roll it out at more locations in the parks AND resorts?
Have you tried mobile ordering yet? Was it as easy to use as it was for me?
