What Is Disney Mobile Order?

Disney mobile order is a feature that you use in the Disneyland App that allows you to basically pre-order food and set an arrival window so that your food is ready when you arrive. There are several eateries in Disneyland and Disneyland California Adventure that you can use this feature for ordering food.

When you are at the Disney parks and enjoying your time, the last thing you want is to be wasting time waiting in lines! Just like using Disney’s mobile order is important for food and beverages, you should be strategizing and including Disney Merchandise Mobile Checkout System!

Why should you use Mobile Order?

It’s super convenient for ordering when you’re standing in lines and want a snack to munch on after you finish the ride you’re waiting for. It also reduces wait times and lines when people use the mobile order feature.

If you don’t want to wait for 30 minutes for your meal or waste 30 minutes of ride time then its the perfect time to get on your phone and use this convenient feature to order a meal, snack or drink.

It’s also super helpful for ordering really popular menu items that might sell out as you can order them through mobile order sometimes as early as possible. For example, during the holidays, we used the mobile order feature to order the popular gingerbread cookie that sells out super fast.

The downside to using the mobile order feature is that Disneyland typically has separate stock availability for the line and for mobile orders. When one sells out, the other might not be sold out as they hold stock for both.

So, the gingerbread cookie could sell out through mobile order but be available in the normal line and vice versa. So, if the gingerbread cookie isn’t available in mobile order, then you’ll want actually to head to the line and wait for it.

You’re probably wondering if you can use Disney mobile order at Disney world. Well, Yah! Disneyland and Disney World are very similar in their processes and systems, so don’t feel left out!

How do you use Mobile Order?

Mobile order is super easy and user-friendly to use. You simply have to use the Disneyland app, where you will find a “mobile order” eligible eatery, at which point you can order food, select an arrival window and pay for it all from the app itself.

Once you’ve done this, all you have to do is wait for your arrival time and then head to your arrival counter at the eatery you chose so you can pick up your food. Be sure to have your order number in hand, and be sure you hit “I’m here” on the Disneyland App when you get to the restaurant to pick up your food. Tapping the “I’m Here” option simply tells the workers to prepare your order now that you have arrived.

Step by Step: How To Use Mobile Order At Disneyland Resort

First, Some Disney Mobile Order Rules

  • Remember, you have to be near the place you ordered food from to hit the “I’m Here” selection.
  • If you miss your arrival window, you could miss out on a refund and your food! Keep in mind once you say you’re nearby and ready to pick it up, you agree you will arrive on time to pick it up, and if you don’t, well…Disney doesn’t have to refund you or remake your order. While that is technically the rule, we had it happen to us, and the cast member just had to grab a manager to get our order made; they said it wasn’t a big deal but did tell us to be better about making the window as it can be an inconvenience not only to you but the workers and other patrons as well.
  • There are several methods to ordering food in the Disneyland app, but here we will demonstrate only one way to order your food.
