Right on the heels of today’s announcement that dining reservations are available via phone beginning June 18 for Walt Disney World Resort Guests, Disney has also updated their Dining “Enhanced Technology” to include Mobile Check-In for Dining Reservations.
Walt Disney World’s website reads as follows:
Mobile Check-In for Reservations: Check in to your dining reservations at select table-service restaurants using the new mobile check-in feature on the My Disney Experience app. There’s no need to visit the host stand to check in!
Now you can check in for dining reservations at select table-service restaurants via the My Disney Experience mobile app! This convenient feature enables you to maximize your vacation time with family and friends—and minimize your contact with others.
Note: Mobile check-in is only supported by devices running Android or iOS with the latest version of the My Disney Experience app installed and location services enabled.
How It Works: It’s easy to use mobile check-in during your visit. All you need is your phone, the My Disney Experience app and a dining reservation at a participating restaurant! Here’s how it works:
- When your check-in window arrives, you’ll receive a push notification prompting you to check in via the app. Or, you can begin the check-in process by scanning a QR code located in the restaurant’s lobby. There’s no need to visit the host stand to check in.
- From the push notification or QR code, you’ll be able to check in for your reservation—and confirm your arrival time and party details.
- Once your table is ready, you’ll be notified to proceed to a specified location.
