When visiting the Disney Parks, chances are you’ll find yourself in a gift shop, or two… or several of them! While we enjoy browsing through the shops, we can’t help but dread the sometimes lengthy check-out lines. Last year Disney began testing their new mobile checkout option at select Disney stores throughout the Parks. Good news… Disney is expanding the service!
Gone are the days of long lines when it comes to buying Disney merch. Instead, you’ll grab your phone and check out right in the palm of your hand. Simply open the My Disney Experience or Disneyland app and scan the barcodes of all your items to add them to your bag. Check out and with payment going to the card in the app (much like the Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering). Then, as you exit the store, you’ll let a Cast Member see your purchase QR code.
Disney has announced more merchandise locations are now or will soon be offering Merchandise Mobile Order. Check out the full list of merchandise locations as revealed by Disney:

Are you planning to use the Merchandise Mobile Checkout on your next visit to the Disney Parks?
