    Hopefully, once the system is performing reliably and the imagineers are comfortable with the proof of concept, they'll throw Disney Dining payment options into the mix.

    I keep wondering about bottlenecks at the pickup window(s) if bunches of people who have pre-ordered show up around the same time. Especially around a traditional meal/snack time with both MDE orders and walk up orders...

    They alert you when your meal is ready so hopefully people will not linger around the window until they are messaged. Also, it is a separate window(s) for MDE pickup.

    I wonder why it isn't working with DDP.. I wonder if there is a vendor issue.. I would think they would use it as a tool to promote the DDP.. as another advantage of buying in to it..

    Along with TiW and AP/DVC discounts that would apply.

    How soon is soon? I'm heading down the week of July 3 and was hoping to get some good counter service in the parks!

    They can handle AP discounts in the Shop Disney Parks app, I'm sure discounts and Dining Plans are coming. Rolling things out a little at a time is the best option, like how they started with FP+ and Magical Express at select resorts.

    You don't want a Volcano Bay situation of trying to do everything from the beginning and then failing.

    Small world, but I'm friends with a CM involved in this program. They go into the park(s) before opening to find appropriate places to hide and install the bluetooth beacons ahead of each restaurant roll out. They have to then test and troubleshoot in the parks making dozens of fake, "test" orders under all kinds of circumstances to look for glitches or failures. Apparently there were some very specific instances in which orders weren't being processed which this person had to recreate and then resolve - and which was quite a challenge! I've been reading about some of the "adventures" in getting the system up and running for weeks now. (Including setting up a bunch of new beacons one day, then having custodial accidentally remove them overnight, not realizing they were supposed to be permanent fixtures! :p ) It's neat to see a little bit of both sides of this as official announcements come to light.

    What are they using Bluetooth for? I thought you would notify the restaurant of your arrival via the app, and last I checked MDE doesn't ask for Bluetooth permissions.

    From what I gather (and I don't have a lot of technical details) the beacons utilize bluetooth for proximity and location details. It's how the beacons communicate back to the restaurant ordering system. Not on your phone side. :)
