    Is there a parent swap feature, and if so how does it work!? Thank you!

    Hi Chris!

    As the mom to a kindergartener and a toddler, Rider Switch how my family can enjoy the items on all of our "must-do" lists without anyone feeling left out or bored! Here are the simple steps to use Rider Switch:
    1. Your whole party will proceed to the attraction entrance, including little Guests will not be riding. Notify the Cast Member that you would like to use Rider Switch and they will direct the first group of riders to proceed into the line. In our family, our oldest is tall enough to enjoy many of the "big kid" rides, so he enters the line with the first adult who will be riding. This group will receive a lanyard which will be traded for a Rider Switch ticket in the queue.
    2. The other group, which will include the little Mouseketeers who will not be riding as well as the other adults in the group, are now free to explore other areas of the theme park. In our family, we like to use this time to take our little one on attractions he will enjoy, get a snack or head to the Baby Care Center to get him refreshed and ready for our next adventure. We love that our little one isn't stuck in queues for attractions he will not be enjoying!
    3. When the first group finishes the attraction, they can exit and meet up with the second group in the theme park. The second group then uses the Rider Switch ticket to enter the attraction using the FastPass+ queue. If a parent waited alone with the little one, they can bring one other Guest with them using the Rider Switch ticket to enjoy the ride. My oldest loves that he can ride twice, once with each parent, using Rider Switch!
    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
