    I will be traveling with my family of 5. Our youngest child will be 2 months old. Is it possible for me, my husband and 2 older kids to be able to ride the rides that are not for infants, without getting in line twice? Thanks for your help.

    Hey, Debra! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for bringing your question to us. While there are no specific "waiting areas" at an attraction's exit at Walt Disney World Resort, which would allow a family to wait in line together and swap children in between rides, there is a very handy system in place. This system, called Rider Switch, does help minimize your family's wait as much as possible and allow you to all experience the magic of Disney Parks. In fact, your kids will get double the magic as they can usually ride along with both parents!

    All you have to do is bring your entire party, including your infant, to the entrance of an attraction that has a height requirement and let the Cast Member know you need to use Rider Switch. You will be given a ticket that will allow the second party to enter the FastPass+ queue when it is their turn to ride. The first adult and the older children will enter the queue for the attraction (either the standby queue or the FastPass+ queue, if they do hold a FastPass+ selection for that time period)  while the other adult waits with the little one. When the first party exits, the second adult may enter the FastPass+ queue with up to two other Guests to experience the attraction. In our experience, the wait in the FastPass+ queue is minimal. There are usually fun areas to hang out with the little one while waiting or you could go find your own fun at another attraction the little one would love.

    I hope this helps you plan your day at Walt Disney World Resort, Debra. Please let us know if you have any further questions!
