    Phil from SC Asked

    Going with friends to WDW late November. My wife nor I have smart phones. Can I download the My Disney app to one of our friends smart phone and have access to do everything that I may need to do using her phone? How would I go about making that happen?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Phil! Thank you for directing your question my way! 

    You are just a few short weeks from your magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort. I hope you are as excited as I just got from merely writing that! I hope time rushes through until you arrive, then slows down so you can enjoy the magic to the max!

    Phil, I heavily rely on my smartphone and the My Disney Experience mobile app during my Walt Disney World Resort vacations. I love getting to dream up and plan my entire visit in this handy planning tool, then have all this pixie-dusted info with me on the go! If you are unable to have this handy app on your phone, and your friends that are visiting with you don’t mind, I would just have them download the app (link highlighted), then link together in the Family & Friends List so you can plan together and access all your plans on that one phone.

    During your visit, you can also visit the FastPass+ kiosks located all four theme parks where you can make and manage your FP+ for all your favorite attractions. Be sure to book your allotted 3 in advance since FP+ depend on availability and the most popular attractions can get booked up fast.

    One last pro tip! Be sure to pack backup batteries! With all the great features on the My Disney Experience mobile app like park maps, current attraction wait times, a handy GPS feature to help you navigate the parks, and more, I’m on it a lot and I usually need to recharge at some point in the day.

    I hope this information was helpful! For any additional questions, tips, or advice for your upcoming trip, please don’t hesitate to come back and see us. ~Emille
