    Hi, I'm getting ready to visit the park with my mom. She does not have the MDE app and I currently manage her plans and have her tickets on my phone. Since she doesn't have anything on her phone, how will she scan into the park and lightning lanes?

    Hi Wesley!

    We are delighted to see you dropping by planDisney with a question!

    It sounds as if you have a lovely trip to the Walt Disney World® Resort planned with your mom! You have a few options for park entry. I suggest that you purchase a MagicBand+ for her. Once you purchase it, just link it to her profile in your My Disney Experience account. She can use it to scan into the parks.

    Or, you can use the Disney Magic Mobile Service. This service allows you to create mobile passes that can be used for park entry. Currently, in the My Disney Experience Mobile App, scroll to the Disney Account feature and then you should see a link to "Set Up MagicMobile Entry." Once you have those passes set up, you should be able to use your phone to scan your mom's pass at park entry.

    As you continue to plan, I believe any trip with a parent is worth celebrating. Consider a special experience with the Enchanting Extras Collection. We have loved learning more about Disney's animal care and conservation efforts on the Caring for Giants Experience. We have taken unforgettable family photos with the Capture Your Moment: Magic Kingdom Park photo shoot. Or you could try the Rose & Crown Fireworks Dining Package. The new fireworks show at EPCOT, Luminous The Symphony of Us is absolutely gorgeous.

    Wesley, I trust that you will get those plans finalized soon! If you have not done so already, consider matching shirts for the trip. We always try to do at least one day with matching outfits. The Disney Store is our go-to for shirts. Just be sure they will arrive in time for you to pack!

    Magic and memories,
