As Walt Disney World plans to reopen in the COVID-19 era, new dining features are being prepared to rollout in an effort to prevent the spread of the disease.
To decrease the amount of human-to-human contact, My Disney Experience will update their dining interface and will allow guests to check-in with their mobile device.
The announcement was made with other enhanced tech on Disney’s official website.
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!
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.
Walt Disney World resorts will begin reopening June 22nd. The parks will reopen July 11th and July 15th.
