"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?

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