    About Rider Swap, does the second party have to use the rider swap 'ticket' immediately after the first party finished with the ride? is there a certain amount of time the rider swap is available for? Thanks!

    Hi Daniel!

    Are you getting really excited about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation? Be honest, who is more excited - you, or your kids?

    With Disney's Rider Switch Service the paper ticket you receive from each attraction will specify it's individual expiration date. That's kind of vague but the good news is you may redeem your pass at any point between the time you receive it and the end of the day of the date printed. In my experience in utilizing this amazing service, I've found that each ride will print a large batch of tickets all at once, maybe once or twice a week, and all tickets are given about a weeks worth of time before they expire. So the length of time you have to experience each attraction depends on when the tickets were printed and when you are requesting the pass, which means that you might have just the rest of that day or you might have seven. Either way you'll have fun!

    Did you know that the Rider Switch tickets are valid for up to three guests? Now you don't have to ride alone! If your total group is small enough, guests who rode the first time are more than welcome to ride with the person who originally waited with the kids. If you don't have anyone in your party willing or able to re-ride with you, sometimes it fun to sprinkle your own pixie dust on a random park go-er or two and offer your extra seats to your new friends. It's a fun way to be generous, you now have someone to talk to in the queue, and it can make for some really fun ride photos.

    I hope this helped clear things up, Daniel, and We'll See You Real Soon!
