    My husband and I will be bringing our 4 kids to disney. Our twins are rather young. Will they let us use a ride swap on Pirates of the Caribbean even though is says it's for "all ages"? I don't think its appropriate for my babies.

    Hi Beth!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. As the mom to a 4 year old and a 2 year old, Rider Switch is one of my favorite ways to make sure everyone in our family can enjoy all of the items on their "must-do" lists! It is so wonderful for the "big kids" to be able to enjoy the thrill rides when the little ones aren't forced to wait in the queue for attractions they will not enjoy. Pirates of the Caribbean isn't on the list of attractions that are eligible for Rider Switch and I haven't used it for my sons. However, I have been able use Rider Switch for other attractions that allow FastPass+ reservations, but aren't on the Rider Switch list. So I recommend that you give it a try! Go to the attraction queue entrance with your entire group including your little ones, explain the situation and ask if you can use Rider Switch since your little ones will not be riding. I have always found the amazing Cast Members at Walt Disney World Resort to be incredibly understanding, kind and accommodating when I ask about the best ways to enjoy our theme park day with my little ones!

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
