    Can I visit Disneyland WITHOUT a cellphone?

    Hey there, Yvonne, welcome to planDisney!

    You know, there is something special about unplugging and enjoying the sites and sounds of the Disneyland Resort! While I am a tech person and admit I am with my cell phone and laptop more than not, I do appreciate being submerged in the magic when I visit. 

    I'm excited to let you know that you can visit Disneyland Resort without a cell phone! However, some features like Genie+, Lightning Lane, and mobile food ordering do require a phone. To access Genie+ and Lightning Lane, you'll need either the Disneyland app or a MagicBand+. For an easier experience, I recommend using Disney's MagicBand+. This handy device links to your MyDisney account, where your admission tickets are stored. If you prefer not to use the app or bring a phone, just enter your MagicBand+ ID number online to link it to your MyDisney account. Before your visit, make sure your MagicBand+ is charged and ready to go! 

    I'm thrilled you'll be visiting during the fall season, Yvonne! Fall is truly one of my favorite times of the year. Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is always so much fun and full of spooky surprises, so you'll definitely want to explore the spellbinding attractions (and treats) in both parks. One of my top recommendations is taking a ride on a doom buggy at the Haunted Mansion Holiday—it's a must-do! Don't forget to keep an eye on the newly reimagined Disney Parks Blog for all the enchanting thrills coming your way this fall season. There's plenty to enjoy whether you're using your phone or wearing a MagicBand+! I hope this helps as you gear up for your visit. If you have any more questions, feel free to reach out to planDisney again. We’re always here to assist you!

    Magic awaits!
