at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will be the first to offer Mobile Order, a new option
to order and pay for meals on-the-go in the My Disney Experience app. It will allow
guests to bypass the line to order when they arrive at the restaurant. Using the app,
they can select menu items, customize their order and pre-pay for their meal. When
they arrive at the restaurant they will tap an “I’m here” button in the app, which will
notify the kitchen to prepare the meal. When ready, guests will be alerted through
the app to pick up their meal at a designated window. The plan is for additional
quick-service restaurants will begin to offer Mobile Order later this year.
Disney also released some information about the menu for the restaurant.
According to the Disney Parks blog:
“Look for familiar dishes with a twist in the fast-casual restaurant, with bowls that
allow diners to customize their lunch or dinner. Diners start with a base of quinoa
and vegetable salad; red and sweet potato hash; mixed whole-grain and rice or
romaine and kale salad. Next is either with wood-grilled chicken, slow-roasted beef,
sustainable fish or chili-spiced fried tofu. And the bowl is finished with charred onion
chimichurri, black bean vinaigrette or creamy herb dressing.
The menu also offers steamed “pods” – bao buns with either cheeseburger or vegetable
curry and served with root vegetable chips and crunchy vegetable slaw.
For little ones, there’s an option of grilled chicken or beef, fish or tofu with greens or
rice; a hot dog wrapped in Parker House dough; cheese quesadilla, or a steamed
“pod” (cheeseburger bao bun).”
The restaurant will open with the rest of Pandora-The World of Avatar on May 27,
2017 at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort.
