    I will be traveling with a 1, 3 and 5 year old. Two part question- if we sign up for FastPass+ are we also able to utilize Rider Switch? And if we use RiderSwitch can more than one adult wait with the three children and be able to switch to ride together?

    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great questions about the Rider Switch Service offered at the Disney Parks.  I have 4 children and am a big fan of this service! The Rider Switch Service allows our whole family the ability to enjoy our favorite attractions without extra wait.

    The answer to your first question is ~ yes! The Rider Switch Service is independent of your FastPass+ selections. Feel free to make and use your FastPass+ selections as you normally would.

    The answer to your second question is ~ also yes! More than one adult may wait with the non-riders while the first party experiences the attraction. The Rider Switch Service states that the second party may take 1 additional Guest with them. We wouldn't want them to ride alone, would we? The information about taking an additional guest is also printed on your Rider Switch pass that the Cast Member gives you.

    One helpful tip to know is the Rider Switch pass does not necessarily need to be used immediately. Unless you are instructed to wait with the non-riders in a certain area, you are free to take your little ones and do a different activity while the other members of your party go on the attraction. Your Rider Switch pass is valid for the entire day and has the date printed on it.

    I hope this information helps you with your Disney vacation planning Jessica. Please let us know if you have any further questions. We are always happy to help!
