    Can I mobile order from home for my kids to pick up if they’re there with their friends?

    Hey there, Jann!

    Welcome to planDisney! We're so happy to see you here with such a wonderful question. How very thoughtful of you to be thinking of your kids as they visit the Happiest Place on Earth! I hope that they're really excited for their upcoming trip and it sounds like you're adding some extra pixie dust to make it even more special!

    I'm happy to report that you are indeed able to make a mobile food order through the Disneyland Mobile App without physically being in the Parks. In fact, I have seen third-party Disneyland bloggers use this as a method of rewarding their viewers who are actually in the Parks during a home live-stream. And to make sure that my information is current, I decided to place an order for a Rest In Chocolate Sundae (something I would ordinarily never do just for myself) at the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor and it allowed me to proceed all the way to the payment screen. You can then communicate with your kids about when to have the order prepared and then send them a screenshot of the confirmation code so they can pick it up! Just make sure that they can make it there within the pickup window or else the order might be cancelled.

    I'm sure your kids will be so thankful to have someone at home thinking of them while they are enjoying a day in the Parks! I've sometimes given my kids a Disney Gift Card in order to give them some autonomy when making their purchases. It's important to note that you do have to be in the Parks and actually in the store to use Merchandise Mobile Checkout, however. 

    Jann, I hope that my response was helpful for you in preparing for your kids' visit to the Disneyland Resort! I also hope that you'll be able to accompany them at some point, because it's a place "where parents and children could have fun together," as Walt Disney said himself. Please reach out to us again if you have any further questions. You're always welcome at planDisney! Until next time!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
