Quick tip of the day

Listener Hannah emailed this tip:
"During our time in Magic Kingdom we decided to stop and get a Dole Whip on our way through Adventureland. Apparently everyone else had the same idea...I’ve never seen a line at Aloha Isle with more than a couple people and there were about 20.

So we stood in line for a couple minutes and it wasn’t moving at all. So instead we got out of the line, opened the My Experience app and ordered our Dole Whip using Mobile Ordering. Approximately 30 seconds after placing the order I was able to walk right up to the window for pickup. Saved us time, and saved us standing in a line!

We did this a couple of times when we stopped spontaneously for something at a Quick Service location. I know this doesn’t work right now if you’re on a meal plan, but if you aren’t - save yourself from an unnecessary line!"
