    Hello!! I want to know if there is now additional outdoor seating available since they encourage mobile ordering at the quick-service restaurants, so that we will somewhere to sit and eat our meals. Thanks! 🏰

    Hey there, Hi there, Ho there, Nancy! Thank you for dropping by to ask planDisney a question! 

    Eating at the Walt Disney World Resort is one of my favorite topics! From snacks to drinks to desserts, I love it ALL! Do not miss the Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich at Sleepy Hollow in Magic Kingdom. It is only served until 11am, so plan accordingly. You can thank me later. 

    I was recently at WDW and let me tell you how GREAT the mobile ordering is! First of all, you can order for the future! So, if you know that you want to eat at the ABC Commissary at 12:15pm, you can order it while you are in line for Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at 9am! It’s kind of crazy and amazing all at the same time! 

    While I didn’t find there to be much additional seating, what the quick-service restaurants were doing on my July trip was not allowing anyone into the location without a mobile order confirmation that their food was ready. There was very limited space allotted for walk-up orders as well. So, every time we had food ready, we had no trouble finding a place to sit. The exception to this was when we were at Woody’s Lunch Box and the torrential rain started (no one was moving, of course!). 

    Cast members were also stationed in seating areas, to assist guests with finding a table. I found this new system to be SO MUCH BETTER than before. I hope this is something that stays forever. 

    I hope this puts your mind at ease a bit as you get ready to head to Walt Disney World next month. I will actually be there at the same time as you!

    Happy Traveling (& eating),
