    We are staying off site. Half of our party has MDE loaded on a smart device. Should we get Key To The World cards for each person and will each person be able to scan their individual card for park entry and Lighting Lane, once it is set up in the MDE app?

    Hello, Clifton! Welcome to planDisney, and congratulations on being so close to your next Walt Disney World vacation! It sounds like your group is off to a great start! As long as everyone traveling is loaded onto your Friends & Family list, they do not all need to have the My Disney experience App loaded on their devices, but it certainly will help to have multiple Guests with the ability to see, make and modify plans for the group! Keys to the World Cards, also known as Admission Cards, will be needed to enter the Theme Parks. An alternative to this is MagicBand linked to a Guest’s profile within My Disney Experience. If you can travel with one of these two in hand, it will save you time and allow you to get right to the fun! Guests who have neither in hand will need to visit the turnstile or the Ticket Office before entering their first Theme Park to pick up Admission Cards. They should be accompanied by the person who purchased the Tickets for them, along with that person’s method of payment and Photo ID. Then you will receive your cards and be on your way!

    When it comes to Lightning Lane selections, this can be initiated by any Guest who has access to My Disney Experience. In addition, off-site Guests can make Lightning Lane selections beginning at the time of Theme Park opening each morning. You also do not have to be physically present in the Theme Park to do so, but you also need to have a valid Park Pass Reservation for that day. 

    Clifton, I hope that this information helps you take the crucial next steps in your vacation planning! Please know that planning is our passion, and we are happy to help you continue to make magic for those you love!

    Safe travels and warmest wishes,
