    This option should be added to the hotels right away.
    Mobile ordering breakfast from your room could save a lot of time. Or ordering that pizza while on the bus back to your hotel.

    I don't agree. I use the Chipotle app all the time and never wait. I go right to he register and pick it up. Oh my way I go.

    This seems to work the same way by it's description.

    We participated in a beta test of an online ordering program at Backlot Express like a year ago. They had problems with the order and comped our whole meal. But that was testing so not surprised there were issues. That being said, I'm all for online ordering. Hope they do expanded it beyond Avatar.

    Did I reference the Chipotle app? No, I did not. So I do not agree with you either. I was referencing the places I have seen and/or used a "pre-order" style app and it was not much better than standing in line. I think the concept is great, the execution was not. If Chiptole is doing right, thats great, Perhaps other companies can learn from them.

    But of course, unless things "evolve" to the point where people MUST mobile-order in advance, you can still choose to wait on line and be spontaneous, decide what you want the nanosecond you're asked "what would you like?"

    Chick fil a already has such an app in the US. Exactly as you stated... you order and pay on the app, when you get there you push a button in the app to check in (letting them know to make/bag your food), then you go to a special collection counter. I personally like it because I can peruse through the app as long as I want without feeling pressured from the people behind/around me to "hurry up and order" and without any distractions from the cashiers trying to "up-sell". Works well for my kids too because they can see up close what all of the options are (the app has pictures of everything) allowing my kids to pick out something that we know they'll actually eat. Things can get pretty hectic/stressful when you're in a line for food (especially with kids) and whenever you can eliminate this line, I'm all for it! If I have the option to find a quite bench to sit down with my family to figure out what each of us wants, order as we walk to the venue, then pick up the food and go, I'd be all for it. Extra bonus points if at the typical quick serve locations, they could use your magic bands to locate where you sat and then just bring the food directly to your table when you check-in.
