Where Can You Get Quick Food at Disney World Without Using Mobile Order?

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Walt Disney World had added a mobile-order feature to many of its quick service dining venues. Though mobile order was available, you’d still see lines, sometimes long lines, at the walk-up order counters.

Now during the pandemic, if a quick service venue has mobile order capability, it’s a near mandate that guests use that method to obtain food. At most locations, there are cast members stationed at the doors who won’t let you enter the restaurant unless you have a notification on your mobile device that you’ve made a mobile order and that the order is complete and ready for pickup.

I was a fan of mobile order pre-pandemic and am fully onboard with the safety aspect of it now. But doing some eavesdropping in the parks this week, I’ve observed that not everyone wants to mobile order their food. Some of the reasons I’ve heard are:

  • Preference for using cash rather than electronic payment
  • Not having a mobile device on hand
  • Not wanting to download the MyDisneyExperience app
  • Fear of using an unfamiliar technology
  • Desire to ask questions of someone inside the restaurant prior to ordering
  • Desire for immediate access to food without waiting for a mobile order window to open.

While there are certainly workarounds for some of these issues, when you’re hangry sometimes you just want what you want. For those folks, there are places at Walt Disney World where you can get quick food via the old fashioned method of standing in line and ordering in person, bypassing the mobile order process.

Here are the places in the Walt Disney World theme parks, that are open during the COVID-19 pandemic, where you can get quick food without a reservation or placing a mobile order:

Also note that many of the available non-mobile-order quick service options are primarily snack or dessert places. During the Food & Wine Festival, Epcot is the exception to this; you can get savory dishes and protein at most of the Festival booths.
