Nearly two dozen restaurants across Disney World's four theme parks and the Disney Springs district allow mobile ordering, which works through the resort's official My Disney Experience app. Previously, the system only accepted payment through a credit card registered with the app.
If you've not used the service before on a previous Disney visit, check out our guide to using mobile food ordering at Walt Disney World. I use mobile ordering at pretty much every fast food place that I can outside of Disney, so it's nice to have that option when I am in the parks, too. Mobile ordering is ridiculously easy and allows you to avoid what can be long, frustrating queues as you wait behind what seems like an endless line of people who can't make up their mind about what to order.
And if that's your family, you can get together and make your decision while you are sitting, waiting or just hanging out somewhere else, without the pressure of a queue of people tutting behind you as you try to figure out the menu. Just place the order via the app, then check in when you arrive at the restaurant. Cast members will have your food ready at the mobile order counter within a few minutes.
Here are the Disney restaurants that now accept mobile orders:

I'd also note that Be Our Guest (considered counter service during lunch hours), is not listed above, but also allows for mobile ordering.
