Mom and daughter on Dumbo

    Kara from Western Australia Asked

    With the Rider Swap, does the child have to wait in the line with everyone? Or can Mum and Bub go to the playground / shop and come back to the line once the rest of the party is finished? How does it work with fast passes?

    Hi Kara!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Rider Switch Service at Walt Disney World is a great way to experience some of the more thrilling attractions while visiting with your little one!

    First thing you'll want to do is check out the list of attractions where the Rider Switch Service is available, no need to memorize it though, you can always check with a friendly Cast Member! You'll want to approach the Cast Member at the ride entrance with your entire party and let them know you'd like to utilize the Rider Switch Service. The adult that is staying with the little one will receive a Ride Switch Pass, while the rest of the party gets in line. If they have FastPass+ at that time, they'll get in the FastPass+ queue and be able to experience a lesser wait time, otherwise they'll enter the general queue. While they enjoy the ride, the adult and little one are free to do as they wish, just make sure to keep track of your Ride Switch Pass! When the first group gets off the attraction the adult that waited with your kiddo plus one other Guest will then be able to bypass the regular line by giving the Cast Member the Ride Switch Pass. 

    Please let me know if you have any other questions before your trip!
