"On regardait les lucioles, et soudain elles ont toutes disparu.+

Is it necessary to use "toutes" in this sentence, or can one just say "...et soudain elles ont disparu?  Does it change the meaning somehow?

This question relates to:
French lesson "Tout, tous, toute, toutes = Everything, all (of them), the whole"

Yes, you can omit toutes, but the statement would be weakened. Toutes insists that all the fireflies disappeared.
