    When planning how to best use our Fastpass+, my 4 year old is 38", she can't come with to some rides. Can I book other attraction for only her? How does that work for the rest of us if we dont have Fastpasses left ?

    Hey, Alejandra!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Kids of all ages should be able to enjoy the attractions they love. Walt Disney World theme parks know they have plenty of Guests who want to enjoy the big attractions but have little princes and princesses who can't. The solution is the Rider Switch Service which can be used with or without FastPass+ reservations. Here is a brief description:

    "If a child does not meet the height requirement or a Guest does not wish to board a particular attraction, no problem! With Rider Switch, one adult can wait with the non-rider (or riders) while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. When the other adult returns, they can supervise the non-riding Guests, and the waiting adult can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular line again!"

    I would suggest that one adult and your daughter have the same FastPass+ reservations and another adult has a different set FastPass+ reservations. For the attractions where your daughter needs to avoid due to a height requirement, the Rider Switch Service should be used. This means the adults not sharing FastPass+ entitlements could use Rider Switch Service for the bigger attractions while each takes a turn waiting with your princess. Talk about magical!

    Note that not all attractions support Rider Switch Service so please review the Rider Switch Service web page.

    Disney Dad Tip: Some attractions offer a "single rider" line so if there are adults who want to enjoy those attractions I would not get a FastPass+ reservation. Please check out these great ideas for preschoolers.

    Alejandra, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
