    We are traveling with extended family & have a toddler. If we wait with him while the rest of the family rides can my husband & I use the rider swap to ride together after the rest of our party is done? Or would we need to wait again? Thanks

    Hi Casey,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and greetings from a fellow Hoosier! I'm so excited for your upcoming visit with your son and your extended family. You're going to make memories together that you'll cherish for years!

    While there will be many attractions and experiences your whole family will be able to enjoy together, you'll definitely want to take advantage of Rider Switch for any attractions that your little guy isn't quite ready to experience. Simply ask the Cast Member at the attraction entrance if Rider Switch is offered, and if it is, the majority of your party may go ahead and ride while you wait with your son. Once they've enjoyed the attraction and are able to watch your son for you, you'll take the Rider Switch Pass to the FastPass+ line and you and another Guest may bypass the standby line and ride together.

    Are you familiar with the Baby Care Centers? They're located in each of the four theme parks and are great resources if you need to pick up any extra supplies like sunscreen, juice, or wipes, or if you simply need a quiet place for a snack. They're just one of the many wonderful resources for families traveling with preschoolers.

    I hope you have an amazing vacation with your family at the most magical place on earth, Casey, and enjoy experiencing the wonder with and through your son!
