Disney Testing System That Brings Food Straight to Your Seat at Fantasmic! & Backlot Express

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Backlot Express and Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are currently testing a new system where guests can have items delivered to them after pre-ordering through a special app.

Mickey is now battling long lines at the Fantasmic! concessions

Guests with FastPass+ reservations or dining reservations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios during this period are randomly being invited to this test via email. If invited, guests may download a special “Express Order” app. Guests can then order and pay ahead.

At Backlot Express, the test periods are as follows:

  • April 28-May 4: Guests may have a meal prepped at counter for pickup or to go (where they are then invited to bring it with them to their seat at the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular).
  • May 5-May 12: Guests may have a meal prepped at counter to-go or have food delivered to their table.

At Fantasmic!, guests can use the app to order select food, beverage, and even merchandise items from their seat and then have it delivered to their seats during the pre-show. On nights with two Fantasmic! shows, this is only available for the first showing.

The app service uses bluetooth and location services on mobile devices.

I wonder if at Fantasmic this will be like the ballpark where they throw the food at us. :D Could get interesting, and quite interactive when they miss.


Imagine that food flying through the air. Better than a Salad Shooter!
