2. New After Hours Events For WDW AP’s

9. Mobile Ordering Gets A Fresh Update
Mobile ordering will look different the next time you log onto the Disneyland App. The feature has an enhanced look that is said to make mobile ordering easier with updated navigation and improved design. Plus, researching and ordering food will be easier for anyone with allergies or dietary restrictions. The update is currently only available in the Disneyland App, but is coming soon to Disney World’s My Disney Experience App.
