    My husband and I are taking our 3 kids to Disney. One is little and can't do some rides. If we use the "baby swap", can my husband take the 2 boys, and after can I go with them? Or do I have to go alone? Thanks!


    Although the exact process for "baby swap" pass (a.k.a. "parent swap" or "rider swap") can vary by attraction, you typically are allowed to bring two companion riders with you with the "baby swap" pass.

    For those of you unfamiliar with "baby swap", the passes are typically available for the most popular rides.  The general procedure is as follows...
    • Enter the line with your entire family, and proceed until you reach the first cast member
    • Let the cast member know that you would like to use a baby swap pass
    • You will be given a piece of paper that allows you to wait while your wife (or the rest of your party) goes on the ride.  Be sure to ask the Cast Member where to meet your party after the ride (usually near the ride exit) and where to re-enter the ride to use the baby swap pass
    • After the ride, you will swap the baby to the other adult (hence the name!), and then you can go on the ride, with up to two companions, without having to wait in the normal line (often you will go through the Fast Pass line)
