Walt Disney World Restaurants Introducing Mobile Dine Check-In
For Guests who will have upcoming Walt Disney World dining reservations, there is a brand new way for you to be able to check in to the restaurant. With Mobile Dine Check-In, Guests will be able to check into select table service dining locations via the My Disney Experience app. By participating in Mobile Dine Check-In, Guests will easily be able to minimize contact with others.
In order to be able to use this option, Guests will need their phone, the My Disney Experience app and a dining reservation at one of the select participating restaurants. When it’s time to check-in for your dining reservation, a push notification will be sent to your phone prompting you to check in for your reservations via the app. If you don’t receive the push notification, you can also use Mobile Dine Check-In by scanning a QR code that will be found in the lobby of the restaurant. Guests who use Mobile Dine Check-In won’t need to stop at the host stand to check in.
Once you access your reservation, you’ll be able to confirm your arrival time and the details of your party. When your table is ready, you will then be instructed of what location to head to in order to be seated.
Restaurants that will be offering Mobile Dine Check-In will include:
- Be Our Guest Restaurant
- Cinderella’s Royal Table
- Liberty Tree Tavern
- Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen
Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Disney Resort Hotels
Mobile Dine Check-In is just another way the Walt Disney World Resort is working to keep Guests safe in a COVID world.
One thought on “Walt Disney World Restaurants Introducing Mobile Dine Check-In”
Curious to see how well this feature works for them, and if it sticks around long-term. Restaurant check-in as an in-person event makes a lot of sense – the host can visually confirm that an entire party is present and ready to be seated.
With the mobile option, you can imagine a family “checking in” at CRT as they exit Haunted Mansion, then spending a while finding their stroller, walking over to CRT, making a bathroom stop, etc, all while their table sits ready for them. Ditto a family “checking in” to Boma/Jiko/Sanaa as soon as their bus gets close to the AKL, then taking forever to actually find the restaurant.
Will service be slowed down (and thus, fewer parties accommodated) as it takes longer for cleared tables to be re-seated?
