    I am making FastPass+ choices for both my husband and I, but we will need to utilize Rider Switch for the baby. Do we both need the same FastPass+ or do we each do individual FastPass+ choices? So in essence we would have 6 FastPass+ choices. Thank you!

    Hi Regina!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to ask an amazing vacation planning question.  My littlest mouseketeer is not quite brave enough for Tower of Terror yet so our family still utilizes the Rider Switch Service on each vacation.  I am happy to share our experience using it with you.

    Both your husband and yourself will not need Disney FastPass+  selections for the same attractions if you plan on utilizing Rider Switch.  For example you could book a  Disney FastPass+ reservation for Space Mountain.  Before you enter both you and your husband would speak to a Cast Member at the entrance and they will issue your husband a Rider Switch return time, which is equivalent to the current wait time minus ten minutes.  You can enter the ride using the Disney FastPass+ queue and when it is time for him to ride he will enter using his Rider Switch time through the Disney FastPass+ queue as well.  In essence you both could each have 3 separate sets of Disney FastPass+ selections made.  Keep in mind your little one can ride any attraction that does not have a height requirement listed.  Some of my babies favorites were "it's a small world", and Dumbo the Flying Elephant.   

    I hope this has helped.  Please stop in again anytime you have another question.  It's always fun to help out a fellow Guest.
