Great news, Disney fans! If you are an upcoming Disneyland Guest looking forward to a visit this summer, we have some updates to share. Disney has just confirmed that the Disneyland Resort is adding more convenience for Guests when it comes to Mobile Order and Mobile Checkout.

A new Disney Parks Blog post confirms that more and more Mobile Order locations are being added to the Disneyland app, and the theme parks have expanded the Mobile Order lanes and pick-up windows.

Our mobile order service via the Disneyland app is the main way to order food and beverages at many dining locations throughout the Disneyland Resort. More locations are being added and existing locations have expanded mobile order lanes and pick-up windows. We also recommend making reservations in advance for Oga’s Cantina as well as other table-service restaurants.

Disney also announced that the Mobile Checkout feature — which was introduced to the World of Disney store at the Downtown Disney District months ago — will soon be expanding to locations within the theme parks, namely the Emporium on Main Street, U.S.A., in Disneyland Park and Elias & Co. on Buena Vista Street in Disney California Adventure Park.

Have you tried merchandise mobile checkout at World of Disney in the Downtown Disney District? You can easily scan your treasures to purchase and checkout using the Disneyland app. Keep a lookout, as this feature will be coming soon to the Emporium in Disneyland park and Elias & Co. at Disneyland California Adventure park.

From these announcements, it’s clear that it will become more convenient for Guests to go about their day and enjoy their theme park visits at the Disneyland Resort, especially as Disney is ramping up capacity and preparing to welcome back even more Guests to the Happiest Place on Earth.

Since the State of California fully reopened on June 15, theme parks like Disneyland and Disney California Adventure do not have to limit capacity. Disneyland Resort — like Walt Disney World Resort — is still using a theme park reservation system and requiring all Guests to book a reservation as well as have a valid theme park ticket in order to enter the Parks. However, Disneyland and California Adventure are not limiting capacity nearly as much as they were when they first reopened on April 30.

At this time, it is unclear exactly what capacity Disneyland Resort is operating at, but we do know that Disney intended to slowly allow more and more Guests into the Parks over time in order to increase capacity in a manageable way. Less than half of all Cast Members are back to work at the Disneyland Resort, so the expanded amenities at the Parks via the Disneyland app are likely going to provide ease to both Guests and Cast Members.
