Disney Mobile Ordering now available for Disney Dining Plans and Debit/Credit Card orders at many Disney World Quick-Service restaurants.

Did you see the announcement today that you can now use your Disney Dining Plan credits to take advantage of mobile ordering at the Disney World quick-service restaurants?   Quick-service restaurants are where you traditionally have ordered your food at the counter and carried it to the table.  With Mobile Ordering, you can totally skip the line to order your food; here's how it works....

Let's say you and your family are in line to see Festival of the Lion King at Disney's Animal Kingdom and you plan to have lunch at Pizzafari after the show.   You can use that time waiting for the show to order your lunch through the MyDisneyExperience app.   After the show, you just head over to the restaurant and, when you arrive, you go into the app and click the "I'm here - Prepare My Food" button while you and your family find a table.   The app will let you know when your food is ready to be picked up at the Mobile Ordering Pick-Up Window and the appropriate number of dining credits are deducted from your plan.  It is as easy as that!

Available for Credit Card payment too:  Don’t have a Disney Dining plan? That's fine - you can still pre-order using the app and pay with the credit card you've linked to your MyDisneyExperience account.   Mobile Ordering is not available when paying with cash.   

Check out the short video to learn more!

Disney World News - Alcohol included in 2018 Disney World Dining Plans for guests age 21 & older where available at quick-service and table-services restaurants. 

The big surprise in today's release of 2018 packages is that alcohol is now included as a beverage option in the Disney Dining Plans for guests age 21 or older.

A single-serving alcoholic beverage includes items such as:

  • Beer or Cider
  • Wine or Sangria
  • Mixed Drinks and Specialty Cocktails

Please note the following ID requirements required to purchase alcoholic beverages at any establishment throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Alcohol will not be served to anyone who does not present valid identification upon request.

Visitors from outside the United States are required to present both a valid passport and another form of government-issued photo identification from their country of origin. Foreign driver’s licenses or ID cards are not acceptable by themselves.

The following forms of ID will be accepted as proof of age:

  •  U.S. state driver’s license (includes U.S. territories – Puerto Rico, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands and American Samoa)

New! Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package Introduced at Magic Kingdom

New! Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package Introduced at Magic Kingdom

The Festival of Fantasy Parade lunch package is a wonderful new dining option for guests at the Magic Kingdom beginning October 10, 2016.   With this package, you enjoy a prix fixe lunch at Tony's Town Square restaurant and you receive a voucher that allows you to watch the Disney Festival of Fantasy parade from a reserved area in front of the flagpole on Main Street USA.  This is a fantastic spot to watch the parade you see the castle in the background as the colorful and whimsical floats come towards you and it also provides a great view of the side of the floats as they make their turn before exiting the park.   I also love that this eliminates the need to stake out a spot early to see this delightful Disney World parade.

Your lunch will include a three-course meal: appetizer, entree, dessert, and non-alcoholic beverage).  Cost: $45 per adult / $17 per child (age 3 - 9), plus tax and gratuity.   This is a great value for anyone on a Disney Dining plan as this experience only costs one table-service meal credit per person.  

Advance reservations are required.  If you've booked your Disney vacation through us, your Build A Better Mouse Trip travel agent can make reservations on your behalf - subject to availability.   If not, you can call Disney dining reservations at 407-WDW-DINE.  This can now be booked online through the end of February, 2017; look for "Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade Dining Package". There are several block-out dates: Nov. 11 & 12, Nov. 20 - 26, Dec. 18, 2016 - Jan. 1, 2017 and Feb. 18 - 20, 2017.

Why You Should book your Disney World Vacation Before a Free Dining Promotion is Announced

When Disney World releases a free dining promotion, people book their trip and then they start booking their dining right away and popular locations like Chef Mickey, O'hana, Teppen Edo, and Be Our Guest fill to capacity almost immediately.  Free Dining is usually announced sometime between late March and early May for late August or early September arrivals.  Disney World dining reservations can be booked 180 days prior to arrival, which means that you can begin booking dining reservations into the typical Free Dining Promotion period in early March.   The easiest and most relaxed way for you to plan your vacation and get the restaurants you want is to let one of our agents get your trip booked now and we'll help you map out which park you'll visit on each day of your vacation, then we'll book your dining reservations on your behalf as soon as your 180 day reservation window opens.  Your top choices will be secured for you before the free dining frenzy begins and then your agent will apply the free dining promotion to your existing reservation just as soon as the promotion is released, subject to Disney terms and conditions.  Your agent will let you know right away if any modifications need to be made to participate.  You don't have to keep watching for a promotion release because we're taking care of that for you.   The deposit is only $200 and is completely refundable up to 30-days prior to arrival so there is absolutely no risk - you can cancel for a full refund if free dining is not offered or your plans change.   Booking your trip now is like getting all the "Black Friday" deals and getting to sleep in on the day after Thanksgiving!
