Mom and Child wearing Magic Bands

    Me again! Just did my FPs & I wonder. When using rider swap, I'm supposed to put both parents for the FP right & then just ask for the pass when I get there? Also, did I have to add the child onto the FP too even though shes too little? Thanks!

    Howdy, Sarah! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Rider Switch Service is something my family can not do without! Now that I have a grade schooler that’s tall enough to brave Tower of Terror, I want to make sure he can enjoy the attraction without leaving Daddy and sister in the dust! I’ll give you the secret scoop on how to make the most of your FP+ reservations.

    Let’s say you want to tackle Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, but your little girl is not big enough. You’ll make a FastPass+ reservation for Splash Mountain for  your husband ONLY. As a family, you will approach the FP+ line and Cast Member at the front, asking for the rider switch pass and showing your non-rider. Then, your husband will then pass through the FP+ line with the pass. After he is done with the ride, he will give you the pass so you can get wet with Brer Rabbit (Rider Switch lets you go through the FP+ line) while he waits with your little Moana. You only have to use 1 FastPass! Likewise, for your next attraction (Big Thunder Mountain Railroad) that needs rider switch, make a FP+ only for you and swap the adults. You can stretch out your FastPass+ reservations a long way. If, for example, you want to ride Journey of the Little Mermaid and want to use FastPass+, you will all 3 need to have a FP+ reservation. Does that all make sense?

    During our last trip, I was able to share excitement with my son while my husband waited with our baby, and vice versa. We made memories both inside and outside of the attractions. I hope your family can do the same! Please let me know what else we can help with and have a Zip A Dee Doo Dah Day! ~ Lindsey P.
