    Using a Fast Pass for my husband and 4 year old for Thunder Mountain, while I sit out with my 2 year old who isn’t tall enough to ride. Can we use Rider Switch with their Fast Passes so I can ride when they are done?

    Hi, there!

     Amanda, I'm so excited to hear you'll be at the Walt Disney World Resort next month. You are sure to have a magical visit! 

     Traveling with little ones in tow can sometimes be logistically challenging, but the folks at the Walt Disney World Resort make it as easy as possible. From attractions with interactive queues to conveniently located Baby Care Centers, they really make sure that your kiddos are happy and entertained in the theme parks. One of my favorite family-friendly services is Rider Switch. We have a little one in my family who is just too little for thrill attractions, but with Rider Switch, no one has to miss out due to waiting with the baby! 

     I'm happy to tell you that Rider Switch and FastPass+ can be used together. It's easy! When it's time to ride Splash Mountain, approach the Cast Member standing at the entrance and request to use Rider Switch. As the designated Waiting Adult, a Rider Switch entitlement will be scanned onto your MagicBand or card. The Rider Switch entitlement allows up to two additional Guests, so if your 4-year old would like to ride a second time, an entitlement will be placed on your big kid's Magic Band or card too. Then, your 4-year old and husband can enter the FastPass+ line with the FastPass+ they already had linked to their accounts. While they ride, your 2-year old can play at the Laughin' Place, a play area designed just for little ones who are too small to ride Splash Mountain. When they're finished riding and your return time window has opened up, you and your 4-year old can enter the FastPass+ with the Rider Switch entitlements!

     I hope this was helpful, Amanda!
