    We have a family of 2 adults, a 7 year old and a 2 year old. We utilized rider swap before but we ended up wasting fast passes. Next time is it possible to get a FP for adult 1(ride alone), and receive a rider swap for adult 2 and 7 year old.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christopher. I'm so glad you stopped by!

     How exciting that you're planning another visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Like your family, my family has a little one who is just too little to experience our favorite thrill attractions. Thank goodness for Disney's Rider Switch service! With Rider Switch and FastPass+, we can maximize our precious time in the theme parks and everyone (except the baby, of course) gets a chance to ride! The adult who waits with your 2-year old will receive a Rider Switch entitlement on their MagicBand or card. The Rider Switch entitlement gives the waiting adult and up to two additional Guests access to the FastPass+ line of the Rider Switch eligible attraction. When my family uses Rider Switch, I book a FastPass+ for the attraction for my husband and two big kids. While they ride, I use my available FastPass+ to take the baby on a family-friendly attraction we can enjoy together. Once my husband and big kids are finished riding, my husband waits with the baby so I can experience the attraction too. With my Rider Switch entitlement, I can take both my big kids with me as my Guests. It's a win-win situation because I don't have to ride by myself AND my sons get to ride a second time! How great is that?

     I hope this was helpful, Christopher. If you have any new questions about traveling to the Walt Disney World Resort with a little one in tow, please let me know. I'd love to help you plan a magical stay!
