    Can my parents use their Key to the World Card to enter the theme parks and tap into Genie+? They don't have Magic Bands and don't want to use their cell phones. I'll be managing their plans from my phone.

    Welcome to planDisney, Katherine! Thanks for bringing us your question about accessing the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort during your upcoming visit! You've come to the right place - I can show you the (key to the) world!

    Guests have many options for scanning into the Theme Parks, Lightning Lane entrances, and Virtual Queue entrances when visiting - MagicBand, MagicBand+, and Disney MagicMobile passes have become super popular digital tools for these tasks, but Guests are also welcome to use their complimentary Key to the World Card as well! Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel are welcome to pick up a card at the front desk of their hotel at any time; this card can also be used to unlock your hotel room and charge purchases back to your room! It's truly the key to unlocking a whole new world of magic during your visit!

    One thing to keep in mind when choosing this option is that it does not guarantee automated delivery of attraction photos, so I'd recommend scanning your card to connect your attraction photos upon exiting when this feature is available. Attraction photos are always some of my favorites - I love seeing everyone's faces and reactions, so I'm sure you won't want to miss having those memories! Katherine, don't you dare close your eyes - it gets better! If you utilize the Disney Genie+ Service, your attraction photo downloads are included with this service! It's a fun way to relive those thrilling moments for years to come!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation making lasting memories with your parents; I owe my own love of Disney to my parents and it's always a special time when we get to visit together even now! They showed me the world of Disney magic, and I can't go back to where I used to be! It's a wondrous place, a thrilling chase, for you and me!

    Enjoy the ride,
