    Setting up FastPass+. My 3yo may not meet the height requirement for all selected rides, though my 6 yo should be tall enough. If my 3yo isn't tall enough we can use the rider swap option but, can my 6yo ride twice with my 3yr's FP, once w/ each parent?

    Hi, Angela!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for your question! I suggest measuring your kids’ height shortly before the trip and then check out the list of height requirements for attractions online so you’ll know in advance if there are any attractions they aren’t able to experience. 

    Yes, if your younger child isn’t tall enough to experience an attraction, you may take turns using the Rider Switch option, which allows an adult (and older children) to ride while a second adult waits with another child. You then "switch" so the second adult can enjoy the attraction without waiting all over again. When my family uses Rider Switch on most attractions without using Disney's FastPass or FastPass+ Service, we tell a Cast Member at the stand-by queue and are issued a special pass. If your family does this, one parent and the non-riding child will exit the queue, and one parent and child will stay. Once your party is reunited, the second adult (along with the older child, if he or she wishes to ride a second time) will use the Rider Switch pass to experience the attraction with a minimal wait. 

    I hope this helps, Angela, and that you have a wonderful visit to Walt Disney World!

    Wishing you magic,
