    When using the My Disney Experience app for mobile orders, the payment is applied to a linked credit card. Will the charge go directly on my card or be tied to my room, as it would using a magic band? Or is it possible to add a gift card to pay for meals?

    Hi Connie!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question.

    I'm happy to hEAR you're planning to use Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering through the My Disney Experience mobile app. Currently, there are close to 50 Quick Service dining locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort that offer Mobile Ordering!

    With Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, you can order and prepay for food, snacks, and beverages, and spend less time waiting in line to satisfy your hunger and more time satisfying your need for FUN! It's easy to place a mobile order - simply choose an available restaurant, select an arrival time, then make and customize your selections. You'll then pay for your order using a credit/debit card, Disney Gift Card, Disney Rewards Redemption Card, or Apple Pay. Once you arrive at the restaurant, you'll select the "I'm Here, Prepare My Order" button and they will begin preparing your meal! You'll receive a message when your order is ready to pick up. Once you pick up your order, your chosen method of payment will be charged. I love the ease and convenience of being able to order ahead of time!

    If you choose to use the linked credit card on your account, the charge will be applied directly to your card. (Purchases made through Mobile Ordering will not be linked to your Disney Resort hotel account like those made when using your MagicBand.) You can use a Disney Gift Card for payment, but the number will need to be entered per transaction, as it will not be stored in your Mobile Ordering account. 

    I hope this helps answer your question about Mobile Ordering, and that you enjoy using the feature on your My Disney Experience mobile app!
