    Should everyone in my group download the Disney app and have their ticket?

    Hi Carol, and welcome to planDisney!

    Your arrival date will be here before you know it, and I am sure you are ready to get your Walt Disney World Resort vacation started, too! What an excellent time to make memories with your family. 

    Should everyone in your group download the My Disney Experience mobile app? That is a great question and one I find to be a personal decision. Not everyone has to have the mobile app; some may have their MagicBands+, some may use the Disney MagicMobile, and some prefer to have their actual theme park tickets in hand. In my experience, myself and my daughter have had the app on our phones while my husband and son used their MagicBands. I have also been in a group where everyone had the app, and I could keep up with any reservations the group had. The choice is yours. 

    Please return before you leave if you have additional questions. We are happy to help.

    Have a magical time!
