“Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is still my favorite ride. The first time I came to Walt Disney World, I took a picture in front of the big guitar in front of the ride. I still have that picture.”

Sabrina is currently at the halfway point of her Summer De Tour which wraps up August 27 in Toronto.

Mobile Order Debuts at Liberty Inn at Epcot Today

Beginning today August 7, Mobile Order, the service which allows guests the convenience of ordering and paying for meals on-the-go within the My Disney Experience App, is available at Liberty Inn at Epcot.

In case you aren’t familiar, Mobile Order offers a huge convenience to park guests.  Using the app, guests can select menu items, customize their order and pre-pay for their meal. When they arrive at the restaurant they can tap the “I’m here” button in the app, which will notify the kitchen to prepare the meal. When ready, guests will be alerted through the app to pick up their meal at a designated window.

Electric Umbrella, also in Epcot, started using Mobile Order last Week.  The service has already debuted at many Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom restaurants as well as D-Luxe Burger in Disney Springs and will roll out to Disney’s Hollywood Studios this month.

Please note Mobile Orders can only accept credit cards for payment right now and not the Disney Dining Plan.  Also, the service is not currently able to offer Annual Passholder or Tables in Wonderland discounts.  These discounts can only be applied at the counter.
