    Hi! I’m traveling with my family in November 2020, and I’m wondering if Rider Switch is available for Smugglers Run? We’re making a special trip to visit Galaxy’s Edge, but my toddler is along for the ride! Thanks

    Bright suns, Amelia!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel on your way to the planet Batuu.

    It sounds like the Force is strong in your family, so I'm so excited that you will have the opportunity to live your very own Star Wars adventure at Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge!  Before you travel to Batuu, be sure to check out these Disney Parks Moms Panel tips for making the most of your visit to a galaxy far, far away.

    If your family wants to take over the controls of the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, but your smallest youngling doesn't meet the height requirement, you are welcome to use the Rider Switch Service for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run.  Did you know that Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run is also now available to select as one of your FastPass+ experiences?  Before you head out for an adventure aboard the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy, take a look at the mission that some of my fellow Panelists recently completed.

    The Rider Switch Service operates in the same manner at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run as it does at most other attractions.  However, if your family is hoping to join Rey and her friends in their battle against the First Order at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, please be advised that Rider Switch is functioning a bit differently for this new experience.  Currently, a virtual queue system with boarding groups is being used for guests wishing to ignite the spark of the Resistance at this epic new attraction.  Once your boarding group is called, you may speak to a Cast Member at Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance about using Rider Switch, but you must first be in a boarding group.  Of course, procedures for accessing this attraction are subject to change at any time.  Since you still have several months before your visit to Black Spire Outpost, I recommend following the Disney Parks Blog for all of the latest news from Batuu.

    'Til the spire, and may the Force be with you!
