    I am trying to plan a upcoming trip (first time in my life and I'm more excited than our kids I think). I have seen a lot about the RIDER SWAP. We have 2 6yr olds and a soon to be 1yr old. How much is this extra from normal costs and is it worth it? Thx

    Hey Kristen! Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! I don't blame you at all for being so excited! I often find that I am as excited if not more than my children before our trips, since I am doing the planning. I am happy to tell you that the Rider Swap option is complimentary to all Disney Park Guests. Rider Swap is when guests take turns waiting with youngsters too small to ride a certain attraction, then "swap" with another adult guest from their party to experience the ride without standing in line twice. We have utilized the Rider Swap many, many times in the parks. Your twins will love getting to experience the attraction twice, with little to no wait the second time. My husband and I have also loved the Rider Swap, so that we both get to experience the attraction with our children that are tall enough to ride. Just ask the cast member at the entrance to the attraction for a Rider Swap and the cast member will present you with the Rider Swap Ticket. You will want to have your "little one" with you, so that the cast member can see that you do have a family member in your party that does not meet the height requirement for that particular attraction. I hope this helps!  Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you! I also have six-year-old twins!  Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Kristen!
    Happy Planning,
