Here’s What It’s Like to Dine at Quick Service Locations in Disney World
We’ve been checking out Quick Service restaurants all over Disney World to give you an idea of the brand new dining procedures.
Quick Service Moblie Ordering Process
Much like we saw at D-Luxe Burger in Disney Springs and Quick Service spots in the re-opened Disney Resorts, mobile order is STRONGLY encouraged. Only guests who wish to pay with cash or have allergies can pay at the register. In fact, most locations like Cosmic Ray’s Cosmic Cafe asked us to mobile order and wait outside until the food was ready.
Using mobile order, you can select the time you’d like to pick up your food (which can be changed if needed), as well as your order. When you arrive at the restaurant, you’ll select “I’m Here. Prepare My Order” and wait for a push notification. The notification will give you a designated Pick Up Station and you will head inside to receive your food from the station.
The different pick-up counters are a new addition to the mobile order procedure. Previously, all guests met at a single Mobile Order pick-up spot. Now, having multiple stations allows for guests to properly socially distance.
Your food will be ready for you, complete with drinks and silverware. Individual packets of condiments were available at condiment stations as well (this will likely vary from location to location). If you need more or are missing anything, just ask a Cast Member.
At Satu’li Canteen in Animal Kingdom, the process was the same as Cosmic Ray’s. For drinks, you head to the fountain drink area where a Cast Member will take your receipt and pour the drink for you.
Guests can still receive free cups of water at any quick-service spot! Cups of water were already prepared and ready to give out at Satu’li Canteen.
While ordering from Satu’li Canteen and Cosmic Ray’s was fairly smooth, Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe was still working out some kinks. We ordered by scanning the QR code on the sandwich board outside.
Our mobile order took a lot longer to prepare and the order still wasn’t quite ready when we were called. We’re hoping it will get quicker as they get used to the new procedures.
Outside of Pinocchio Village Haus, a Cast Member was informing guests they should Mobile Order before entering unless they required assistance.
The Milk Stand in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge has been reduced to only mobile ordering to reduce groups of people from crowding around the stand.
Ronto Roasters in Galaxy’s Edge was asking guests to mobile order outside the restaurant. Guests can only enter to pick up their food.
Seating and Safety Protocols
Tables inside restaurants are spaced out, with some being marked as unavailable to properly distance. We found it easy to snag a table, however, it’s always a good idea to go at “off-peak” mealtime to make sure you can find somewhere to sit.
As a reminder, once seated, guests are able to remove their masks and enjoy their meal. Just remember to put them back on if you get up to use the restroom or when you’re finished! Cast Members were on hand to bus tables.
Starbucks Ordering Process
The process for ordering coffee at Main Street Bakery in Magic Kingdom and Creature Comforts in Animal Kingdom was smooth and quick this morning. We were allowed to enter and stand in line inside the building, but we were told to stand on the markers that separate you from other guests.
After ordering, we were asked to stand on markers while we waited for our drinks. If there were no markers available, the Cast Member would have you wait for the next marker to become free.
The condiment table that held straws, napkins, and milk was cleared out. You can ask a Cast Member for any of these items.
Oga’s Cantina Experience
Oga’s Cantina in Galaxy’s Edge is basically a sit-down restaurant but it’s treated sort of like quick-service. The process is similar to what it was pre-closures. You add your name to the virtual queue and wait to be notified that your table is ready. You will check-in by scanning the QR sign outside as opposed to checking in with a Cast Member.
They are limiting capacity far more than they were prior to closure. You are limited to 45-minute visits and required to wear a mask when you are not drinking or eating. You are asked to not mingle around the restaurant because it is so small and it’s difficult to keep your distance from others.
Snack carts also have social distancing markers to create space while waiting in line.
Even small beverage carts like the Galaxy’s Edge Coke Stand had safety markers for guests to stand behind.
Mr. Kamal’s was open and had two dipping sauces ready for our seasoned fries! You could choose from tandoori honey mustard and honey kimchi. Both sauces weren’t out for guests to self-serve, rather you have to ask a Cast Member and they get your some. The saffron aioli was missing from the options.
We’re making our way through quick-service spots at all the parks to give you a better idea of the new process. Be sure to follow along with us as we inform you of the new procedures and updates as events unfold.
