    I will be traveling to WDW with my two boys & it will just be the three of us so I was wondering if I could use the "rider swap" to take one son on a ride while my other son waits on us? I need him to stay in line with us but I know he won't

    Hi Karen!

    Disney's Rider Swap is a great way for a parent to enjoy an attraction with a child while another sibling waits - usually with another 'of age' parent or adult in the party.

    In your particular case, you willw ant to check with a Cast Member at each attraction you are wanting to enjoy with your older son to see how they can best accommodate you. I have myself experienced situations in which there are sufficient Cast Members at an attraction that one is able to 'stand with' your other child at the ride exit while you enjoy the attraction. This isn't always a possibility, but if a Cast Member is able to help you out - they certainly will! It never ever hurts to ask!

    My husband experienced a situation similar to this at Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Hollywood Studios. He and my daughter had convinced him to come on with him - although he dislikes it ;) and at the front of the attraction line a Cast Member said he's be happy to walk him through to the exit to await them. He was THRILLED needless to say!

    Be sure that you all enter the attraction queue, or FastPast queue if applicable, together and then speak to a helpful Cast Member!

    Wishing you a Magical trip to Walt Disney World Karen.
