    Still confused on rider swap. Tall 4 yr old won't ride anything scary. Can DH and I use rider swap even if he's tall enough for ride but scared or must he be below height requirement? If rider swap okay, can my 2 teens ride again w/1 of us?

    Hi there Vicki!  It sounds like you are familiar with how it works, but take a look at this for more information regarding Rider Switch .   We have always used Rider Switch, even with an older child who was just too frightened to ride something.   In our experience we have never been told that it wasn't an option.  First, check that it's offered at the theme park attraction.  A Cast Member will then ask you to enter the line.  When it's time to board the ride,  let that Cast Member know you want to utilize Rider Switch.  He or she will let you know where to wait while the other member(s) of your party enjoy the ride.  When they get back, you will "switch" places with your husband and be able to enjoy the ride as well.  Ready for more good news on this? Your other kids will be able to ride again but with you this time. It's a "win win!"

    I wish you a MAGICAL vacation, Vicki!
