Walt Disney World Resort came up with solid reopening plans in order to get the gates to its theme parks back open to the public. On July 11, Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom reopened, with EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios following just a few days later on July 15.
With the reopening of Disney World came several changes including the requirement of wearing a face mask, social distancing measures put in place, plexiglass put up in several areas of the park, limited capacity, and the use of contactless ordering of food throughout the parks.

Disney Parks recently released information regarding the new mobile ordering features, saying:
Mobile ordering is part of our continued efforts to make your vacation experience more magical. With the service, you can save time, skip the line and head directly to the pick-up counter for contactless payment using a credit/debit card, Disney Gift Card, Disney Rewards Redemption Card or Apple Pay.
And now, Disney Parks is releasing even more information around the mobile ordering process.
Disney Parks stated:
During visits to Walt Disney World Resort, the delicious “Grey Stuff” and many, many other mouthwatering dishes are just a few easy taps away with mobile ordering off our digital menus. It’s menu magic technology that limits contact and is simple to use – scan a QR code, select and enjoy!
Currently, most quick-service park restaurant menus are available in the Mobile Order section of the My Disney Experience app and/or displayed on signage at the restaurant. And at select table-service locations, you can easily access a digital menu by scanning a QR code for a magical dining experience.
They also released the following video to help Guests navigate the new mobile order features. Check it out here:
If you plan on visiting Walt Disney World Resort, there have been safety protocols and several other changes put into place to keep Guests and Cast Members safe. Social distancing measures have been put in place, excessive cleanliness, encouragement of mobile orders, plexiglass, and as we previously reported, the elimination of character meet and greets. Also being eliminated from the parks are parades and fireworks along with other similar entertainment that draws a crowd, and much more.
