Mobile Food Ordering At Walt Disney World Now Accepts The Disney Dining Plan

It started out last year with the Satu’li Canteen in Pandora – The World of Avatar and has since branched out and it was always missing something, but not anymore. Those visiting Walt Disney World will now be able to take advantage of the ease of Mobile Food Ordering and use their Disney Dining Plan. That’s right, it has finally become a payable option and guests won’t be limited to only using a credit or debit card any longer.

Ever since it came into existence, guests have been using the Mobile Food Ordering service in their My Disney Experience app with great ease. As of Wednesday morning, it is offered at 23 locations throughout the theme parks and Disney Springs, but it will likely head out to others in the future.

It is extremely convenient and saves a lot of time, but there was always one big problem and it was that the Disney Dining Plan couldn’t be used to pay. As reported by the Disney Parks Blog, that has since changed and guests can order meals or snacks at the participating locations and use their DDP to pay for it.

This update to the My Disney Experience app will launch sometime during the day on Wednesday and give guests the new payment option.
