Make New Magic with the Genie

If you’re planning a group trip to Disney, the first thing you need to know is that the Genie is now all-powerful!  Disney Genie is the new online service built right into the My Disney Experience app.  It gives you early access to select rides, purchasing options, and many other perks.

Disney’s Mobile Ordering

One of Disney’s fresh new features is contactless dining.  The past 18 months have made most of us mobile dining experts, and Disney’s mobile ordering is as easy as waving a magic wand.

If the force of hunger is strong with you or you simply want a tasty tidbit, contactless dining makes it easy to order, pay for, and pick up your favorites.

  • Order food and beverages
  • Make dining reservations
  • Check in to restaurants
  • Join table-service waitlists
  • Browse menus

It’s all done through My Disney Experience – so make sure everyone in your group can download the app!

Disney's mobile ordering in 3 simple steps

How it Works in 3 Simple Steps

1. Order and Pre-Pay

Open the My Disney Experience app and select “+.”  Next, choose “Order Food.”  Pick a restaurant that is available, choose your arrival time, and make your selections (customization is available).

Next, review your order details and pay for your order directly through the app.  You can link to a credit card, debit card, Disney gift card, Disney Rewards Redemption Card, Apple Pay, or Disney dining card.

Please note:  if you pay with the dining card, you will have to re-enter your information EACH time you use it for a mobile order.  Other forms of payment like credit and debit cards are saved for your convenience.

2. Let Them Know When You Arrive

Once you arrive at your dining location, select “I’m Here, Prepare My Order.”  Now the kitchen will begin making your order.  Please do not select “I’m Here” unless you are actually there!

3. Pick Up Your Order

Finally, you’ll receive a notification from the app when your food is ready to retrieve at the counter with the “Mobile Order Pick Up” sign.  That’s all there is to it!

 

 

What About Group Meal Coupons?

Disney will continue to honor meal coupons through 2022 as well.  Meal coupons purchased through the school are tax-exempt (saving you a little bit of cash!)  They can be used at select restaurants throughout the park, at Disney Springs, and on-property at hotels.

Current 2022 rates for coupons are:

Breakfast ($14)

Lunch/Dinner ($16 without dessert)

Lunch/Dinner ($20 with dessert)

Ordering Group Meals to Go

Student groups staying on property currently also have the option to pre-order meals to go.  It’s a really convenient way to feed your crew while minimizing contact.  However, policies and procedures change constantly so please don’t count on this service as you plan!
