    Carol from NY Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    How do you use the My Disney Experience if you don't have a smart phone? We will be going to Disney World in 2020 and I would love to be able to link everything to my Magic band. Is this possible?

    Hey, Carol and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 2020 at Walt Disney World Resort is going to be an intergalactic spectacular with the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    While it is ideal to have a smartphone to help stay organized and keep track of your adventures with the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can still do all the planning before your trip using My Disney Experience online.

    With My Disney Experience, you can link tickets, hotel reservations, MagicBands, and FastPass+ selections all from the convenience of your home. Your MagicBand allows you to enter the theme parks and visit FastPass+ Kiosks where you may add additional selections one-at-a-time on a rolling basis after you use your initial three FastPass+ selections. You may also charge food, beverages, and merchandise with your MagicBand if you are staying at a Disney Parks Resort hotel.

    Disney Dad Tip: We traveled to Walt Disney World Resort for years without smart devices. If you do your research ahead of time, print out an itinerary, pick up Times Guides and Theme Park Maps when you arrive at your hotel and theme parks, and make your Disney dining reservations then you will be singing "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah" every day of your vacation.

    Carol, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
