Mobile Order at Walt Disney World

Every Disney parks fan has pet peeves.  These are the things that make you absolutely crazy when touring a Disney park.  For me, it's when people wait in line FOREVER at the quick service restaurants and then still don't know what they want when they get to the register.  When you've had enough time to basically memorize the menu, you should be able to place an order quickly.  And yet, this seems to be a challenge for many visitors.

Enter mobile order, one of the greatest Disney parks inventions.  You can place your food order via the My Disney Experience app from anywhere in the park and then when you arrive to your food location, all you have to do is tap "I'm here" and they will start to prepare your food.  You'll get a notification when the food is ready and pick it up at the mobile order window.

This was an amazing time saver at Satuli Canteen
The caveat is this: you need to pay with a credit card in order to use the service.  You can't use dining plan credits, cash, or tap your Magicband.

Mobile Ordering has been rolled out to all four theme parks and many of the most popular counter service establishments have added it.  This includes Aloha Isle...yes, you can bypass the line and MOBILE ORDER YOUR DOLE WHIP!
Bring it into the Enchanted Tiki Room for bonus Disney street cred.

Have you used mobile order at the parks?  What did you think?

Storybook Character Dining to Debut at Artist Point at Disney's Wilderness Lodge

I'm so excited about today's update!  Character dining is coming to Disney's Wilderness Lodge.  This winter, Snow White, Dopey, Grumpy, and the Evil Queen will welcome guests to dine with them at Artist Point. 
Information is limited at this time, but we do know that it will be a prix fixe menu with shared appetizers, a delicious entree and dessert.  We're still eagerly waiting for information on the opening date, menus, and how many dining plan credits this experience will require.  However, I immediately thought of my fellow Dopeys when this information was released.  How great would this be as a celebration meal after completing the Dopey Challenge?
What do you think? Are you excited for this option?

Date Based Ticketing Coming to Walt Disney World

In a move that had been highly rumored for months, Walt Disney World Resort in Florida introduced date based ticketing today.  Here's what we know:
What is Date Based Ticketing? -Instead of paying one set price to enter any of Walt Disney World's four theme parks, your price will vary depending on when you go.  Busier times of year (think school breaks and the holidays) are more popular times of the year to go to WDW, so those tickets will be more expensive.  If you travel during a less crowded time of year, those tickets will be less expensive.  This is a system that has been in place at Disneyland Resort in California for single-day tickets for some time now.
Disneyland Resort already has date-based ticketing What about Multi-Day Tickets? -The date based ticketing will also apply to multi-day tickets.  So your three day park hopper ticket will vary in price depending on the time of year you travel.  You must also select the time-frame in which you plan to use your ticket when …

The Saratoga Palio Melanie Merola O'Donnell Memorial Half -Recap

On Sunday, September 16, Nicole and I, along with hundreds of other runners took to the streets of Saratoga Springs, New York to run the Saratoga Palio Melanie Merola O'Donnell Memorial Half Marathon.  It was a great way to spend a Sunday!  Both Nicole and I had a great experience with all aspects of this event.
Adding this race to our calendar was a last minute decision.  I have been wanting to do a fall half marathon before our planned Wine and Dine honeymoon trip.  With so many trips planned for this fall, it was hard to find a half that fit our schedule.  We also didn't want to travel to a race, since we'll be doing so much traveling already.  While in Saratoga last weekend, Nicole and I saw a sign for this race and figured since it's local, to check if there were still spots open. Lucky us! We were able to register on the Tuesday before the race. When you come from the world of runDisney, where you have to register months in advance, sometimes it's nice to jus…
