    Is mobile ordering mandatory? My wife and I are in our 60's and have trouble with electronic gadgets,we are dvc and ap holders and were told you can't use those discounts with the app. Since we are seniors any money saved is more for another time.

    Hi there, Christopher! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It’s so good to hEAR from you again!

    You and your wife sound like you love Walt Disney World Resort just as much as I do! We have a lot in common, including that we’re both part of the Annual Passholder family! I am still saving up to become a Disney Vacation Club member, and I cannot wait until the magical day when it happens! 

    Christopher, I totally understand what you mean about trouble with technology; I’m still trying to get my father to own his own cell phone, which he refuses! I went ahead and spoke to a lovely Cast Member who told me for all Quick Service restaurants that are operating, Guests still have the option to walk up to order, and not solely rely on Mobile Ordering. 

    Although most table service dining locations are requiring Mobile Orders, there is no need to worry. Cast Members at the Host stands are still able to assist with your orders. 

    And Christopher, just in case you do give Mobile Ordering a try, as long as your Annual Pass is linked to your My Disney Experience account at participating dining locations, you will receive your discount. I know exactly how important the Annual Passholder dining discounts are and make sure to take advantage of those, as well! The Cast Member also mentioned with Disney Vacation Club, you will need to show your card to get the discount.

    Christopher, I hope you and your wife have the most magical vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
