Mobile Merchandise Checkout Now Available at Everything Pop!
A few days ago, we here at MickeyBlog shared with you the news that Disney World is working hard to implement new measures to cut back on queues as implement more contactless payment systems. Fans have been able to pre-order and pay for quick service food & snacks across all four theme parks and resorts for a while now this service has been expanded to include purchases made across select Disney’s stores and gift shops!
It should be noted that at the moment this service is a trail. We originally noticed that it had been implemented at MouseGear at EPCOT but now it has also expanding to Everything Pop, this gift shop in Disney’s Pop Century Resort.
As you can see from the MDE images, guests visiting shops where mobile checkout is available are being asked to grab a designated mobile checkout bag.
Using your mobile phone you can scan the items you want to purchase.
When finished you tap the checkout button and can use your phone to pay for purchases. Finally, in what reminds me a bit of Sam’s Club, guests will need to show their QR code when leaving so that Cast Members can confirm purchases and then you are on your way!
We absolutely love this feature and had a chance to try it out at both locations. Guests should note that you must have a tablet or smartphone with a camera that can scan images to use the service. It should also be noted that there will still be cast members at registers to help check out guests the old fashioned way.
This is a story that we’ll be following closely. Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog for further news and updates!
