    Elizabeth from FL Asked

    I will be pregnant visiting Disney World with my two children and husband. Since I can not ride a lot of the rides, can we use rider switch for my husband to take one child, then come back and take the other?

    Hi Elizabeth,

    First off, from one pregnant soon-to-be mom of 3 to another, I salute you! We'll be visiting Walt Disney World soon, with me waddling along, so it's so great to "meet" a fellow mom who's about to take the same adventure.

    Yes, you can use Rider Switch for select attractions during your visit. You'll enter the regular queue line and once you reach the end, inform the cast member that you would like to utilize Rider Switch. The cast member will then direct you to the area reserved for Rider Switch guests. Your husband will take the first kiddo on the ride. Once they finish, he'll skip the regular line and go directly to the Rider Switch area. He'll then be able to give the cast member his Rider Switch pass and take your second child on the ride. This is even easier if you have FastPass; inform the cast member in front of the FastPass line that your family will be utilizing Rider Switch but you won't be riding. They'll immediately escort your family to the Rider Switch area. If the area doesn't have a place for you and your belly to rest, be sure to ask the cast members to direct you to a nearby area with seating. 

    For a full list of the attractions that offer Rider Switch, check out this page: Rider Switch Service.

    I hope this answered your question, Elizabeth. If you have any more questions before your vacation, feel free to ask at any time. I'm always here to help.

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
