Is this naive/possible/practical? FP+ question

Our next trip to WDW isn't until February but I'm starting to work out our daily plans, under the assumption that we'll be able to use FP+ by then. Am I missing a piece of the puzzle by thinking that I can choose FP+ times/attractions, make a note of them, and just go with it? Will I NEED the MDE app for anything other than a reminder? Do I have to use the kiosks if I don't have the app, or a smartphone at all for that matter?

No you won't need a smartphone or the app while you are in the park.

If you want to change a FP+ time, you can use one of the in-park kiosks (though there may be a long queue).

In theory, if there is a ride breakdown of one of the rides for which you have a FP+, you should get a text or a message on MDE. Not sure if this actually happens yet or is just a rumor. If you didn't have a smartphone you would miss out on that.
