In Disney World, the phrase “time is money” takes on a very literal meaning. Many people are willing to pay for Genie+ in order to save time by skipping the lines at some attractions. Some people stay at Disney World-owned hotels because of the added bonus of 30 extra minutes each morning in the theme parks. But there are some ways to save time without spending any extra cash!
One of those ways to save time is by using Mobile Order to purchase food from select restaurants on the My Disney Experience app, and then you can skip the line and just pick up your food when it’s ready. But did you know that there’s a similar system at a few Disney World merchandise locations as well?
Mobile Checkout was recently introduced at a few Disney World stores, including the Emporium at Magic Kingdom, Creations Shop at EPCOT, Island Mercantile at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and more. Now, another shop has been added to the list!
Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities is now using Mobile Checkout in Disney World. This Star Wars-themed store is located in Galaxy’s Edge in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. You’ll find lots of merchandise themed to a galaxy far, far away, and if you’re lucky, you might even see Dok-Ondar himself overseeing the sales (although he’s often hiding behind a curtain).
To use Mobile Checkout, make sure you’re signed into your My Disney Experience account on your phone. Open up the app, and click the “+” symbol at the bottom of your screen. You should see an option there to “Shop in Store.” Click that, and then select which store you want to shop at.
You’ll use your phone to scan the barcodes of anything you want to buy, and once you’re finished shopping, hit “Check Out.” You can pay for your souvenirs on the app as well.
After you’ve paid, you’ll see a QR code pop up — you should show this to the Cast Member at the door. They’ll scan the code to verify that you’ve paid for your purchases, and then you’re good to go! You can save time by avoiding the line at the cash register, which might especially come in handy at a shop like Dok-Ondar’s where there aren’t a ton of cashier stations.
Here’s a list of all the stores that are currently using Mobile Checkout:
- Emporium at Magic Kingdom
- Creations Shop at EPCOT
- Treasures of Xandar at EPCOT
- Mickey’s of Hollywood at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Dok-Ondar’s Den of Antiquities at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
- Island Mercantile at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park
- Discovery Trading Company at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park
- World of Disney at Disney Springs
