    My husband and I will be down in November with our daughter who will be 14 mos old. I am curious about the rider swap and fast pass+. If we choose a fast pass for an attraction, do we both need a fast pass or just one for the two of us then swap? Thanks!

    Hi Jennifer,

    Congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!  You will be happy to know that the Rider Switch Service is independent of your FastPass+ selections.  You do not need to have a FastPass+ selection for an attraction in order to utilize the Rider Switch Service.  You may make your FastPass+ selections however you see fit and use the Rider Switch Service in addition to your FastPass+ selections at the attractions which offer it.  Follow the previous link to determine which attractions offer the Rider Switch Service.  If you are ever in doubt which attractions offer Rider Switch Service just ask the Cast Member who is in attendance at the entrance.

    In order to use the FastPass+ Service for an attraction you need to have made a FastPass+ selection for it and will touch your MagicBand or park ticket to the touchpoints as you enter the FastPass+ queue.  In order to redeem the Rider Switch pass as you enter the FastPass+ queue you will present the Rider Switch pass to the Cast Member.  One tip I have for you is that your Rider Switch pass is good for the entire day in which it was issued.  So if your little one needs a break in between swapping turns with your spouse have no worries, you can come back at a later time the same day.  Since policies and procedures change from time to time be sure to read the instructions printed on the Rider Switch pass.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question Jennifer.  If we can help you any further with your vacation planning please let us know.  We are always happy to help.

    Have a Disney Day!
