    Hi, are all the shops opened in the parks? We will be there later this week and we want to be able to do some shopping and I wasn't sure if they were all open. No smart phone so not able to log on to order food hope that won't be a problem? Thanks

    Hi Stacey,

    How exciting for your vacation to be "just around the riverbend"!  You must be so excited, and I have to admit I am a wee bit jealous you will be vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort during the fall.  Those decorations at Magic Kingdom have me yearning for another visit.

    Although the current world situation has caused us to do things a bit differently these days, you can be assured that there will be many opportunities for shopping at Walt Disney World Resort.  Please browse through the previously linked list and take note of the shops currently open at the Disney Resort hotels and theme parks you plan on visiting.  I also highly recommend visiting Disney Springs if shopping is on your list of "to-do's"!  During my own family's vacations I usually plan a day for my family to visit Disney Springs so we can satisfy our shopping desires.

    As far as not having a smart phone with you on vacation, have no fear.  Although mobile food ordering is available for many quick service restaurants, it is not mandatory for you to utilize this service.  At every quick service food location, there will be a Cast Member to assist you with your order.  If you are able to have a contactless form of payment, such as a debit card or credit card, that is much appreciated.  Furthermore, you may also choose to check in for your table service reservations in person if a smartphone is not your preferred method.  There will be a Cast Member located outside of most table service restaurants who can assist you with checking in for your reservation.

    Have a Magical vacation Stacey!  Please let us know if we can answer any further Disney vacation questions, we always love hearing from our friends!
