This morning a new update was released for the My Disney Experience app. This release will add new functionality to allow guests to both order their food and pay for it right from their phone! This is an amazing step forward to alleviating those long quick-service counter lines!
It does look like this new feature will begin at select restaurants coinciding with opening day of Pandora – The World of Avatar. Currently only Pizzafari and Satu’li Canteen are listed as potential dining options. It is unclear at this time how this will interact with using Disney Dining Plan credits.
Another new feature included with this release is that notifications can be sent to a guest when new PhotoPass photos are available to view. This is a feature that can be turned on and off depending on your preferences. Also, guests will now be able to see additional reservation resort details like their room type and location from their phone.
At the time of this article being published, only the update for iphones had been released. We expect the Android version to be available very shortly.
