    Megan from PA Asked

    Used baby swap with our family of 5 & loved it. How do we make it work with 9? For Soarin', the mountains, etc. we will have 6 who can ride and 3 who can't. How many can return to ride with 1 pass? Any other tips for seeing attractions with a big group

    Hi there, Megan!

    Bring the whole gang through, and then let the Cast Member at the front of the line know that you would like to child swap. While there is no stated limit to the number of people able to be counted on a child swap pass, the Cast Member can use his/her discretion. Since so many of your party can ride, the goal will be to make the experience as pleasant as possible for you all -- and fair to those queued up behind you.

    The first portion of your group enters the queue area, while one or more adults stays behind with the children who cannot yet enjoy the attraction. Once that portion of your party is finished, those individuals will stay behind with the children while the remainder of the adults goes on the ride.

    Depending upon the number of people authorized to use the child swap pass, your best bet might be, in some ways, to take half a day to split up and tackle rides based on interests and ride style preferences (you might find all of your thrill riders want to go together, while the less thrill-seeking members of your party can take the children on relevant rides.

    Check out the Larger Parties planning tools on the official Disney Web site; that'll help get you off to a great start!

    See you later, celebrator,
