    Are reservations needed for the quick food courts at hotels and parks? Do we have to do an online order or will be able to walk up and order when we arrive at food courts?

    Welcome to planDisney, Karissa!

    Thank you for stopping by with an excellent question. We are happy to assist you as you plan a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    The Walt Disney World Resort has always been committed to promoting the health and safety of all Guests and Cast Members, that is why visitors are currently encouraged to use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering to purchase meals. Not only does using this feature help with social distancing measures, but it also helps you save time since you can order and pay for meals anytime, anywhere.

    Reservations are not commonly available for quick-service restaurants. If you prefer not to use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering during your stay, you are welcome to stop by quick-service locations and the food court at your Disney Resort hotel to place orders in person. If you have plans to visit a dining destination that is currently accepting reservations, remember that you can start booking 60 days in advance online or by using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    planDisney tip: Did you know that you can use a Disney Gift Card to pay for meals purchased with Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering? While using the My Disney Experience mobile app, tap the plus sign located at the bottom of the screen. Select Order Food, choose an available arrival window at one of the participating locations, and proceed with building your order. After selecting items from the menu, tap View My Order, and if you are ready to place it select Review Order Summary. Scroll down to confirm your order and select Continue to Checkout where you will be able to select a Disney Gift Card as a payment method. Tap the plus sign right next to Add a Card, select Disney Gift Card, enter the 16-digit card number, and tap Save to finalize your purchase.

    I hope this information is helpful, Karissa! Do not hesitate to visit us again if you have additional questions, we are delighted to help.

    Best Disney wishes,
