    My group has 4 adults/3 kids-one of which won't be able to ride some of the rides. Can 2 adults take the 2 kids while the other 2 adults wait with the baby and then use the rider swap for the two adults to ride with the 2 older kids again?

    Hi Melinda,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and for your question. I hope you are having a Zip-a-dee-doo-dah day! I'm delighted to hear that your family will be visiting Walt Disney World. 

    The Disney Parks have come up with a convenient feature called the Rider Switch to help families utilize the attractions in a timely manner even if all the Guests in their party do not wish to ride whether it is due to height restrictions or personal preference.

    Both parents and child(ren) will go to the queue line and speak to the Cast Member so they can give you the Rider Switch card. Here's how it works, one adult will wait with the non-rider while the rest of the party participates on the attraction. The waiting adult then can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular line again once another adult returns to supervise the non-participating Guest. The waiting adult may also bring one other Guest with them to ride the attraction with them. I've attached the link to the Rider Switch card so you can read more about it on the Walt Disney World website. 

    However, the second "waiting adult guest" and one of the kids in your party will each need a FastPass, if they wish to ride the attraction when you utilize the Rider Switch card with your plus one Guest. 

    I hope this helps you. If you have any more questions planning your pixie-dusted trip, please don't hesitate to ask.

Happy riding!
