    Do we still need to wear lanyards at Disneyland to hold our Ticket/card or is everything on our phone?


    Welcome to planDisney, we are so happy to have you visiting us today. Can you believe that your visit is right around the corner? Just think, in a few days you will be strolling down Main Street, U.S.A., with a Mickey-shaped treat in hand. One of my favorite things to do is sit on Main Street, U.S.A., with a snack in hand. It’s the perfect way to end a fun-filled day and a nice place to rest my feet if needed. 

    When it comes to how to hold your tickets, it’s completely up to you! I think for the longest time I preferred wearing my ticket around my neck on a stylish lanyard. Once my Mouseketeers got a little bit older I found that having my hands free and wearing less helped me navigate the park better. Usually sometime after lunch I become the holder of all things, so for me, less is more. Having everything on my phone is just convenient for me especially since it’s out most of the day so that I can take pictures.

    I always say, do what’s best for you! You can start with a physical ticket and switch to the Disneyland mobile app at any time. Catherine, keep in mind you will have to link your ticket to your Disneyland account anyway so that you can schedule your Theme Park Reservations. So your theme park ticket will already be accessible through your mobile device.

    I hope this helps you decide the best way to travel with your ticket. Have a great visit and if there’s anything else you need, we’re all EARs!
