    When using the rider switch program, what happens if the portion of the group that rides first has fast pass, but the non-riding adult does not?

    Hi Michelle,

    Disney's Rider Switch Service is one of my favorite ways to save time when vacationing with my family in Walt Disney World.  Since there are four "Mouseketeers" in my family, we inevitably have one or two who are unable or do not wish to ride an attraction.  The Rider Switch Service allows both me and my husband the ability to experience the ride without having to wait in the standby queue a second time.  Follow the previous link to learn more about the details of how the Rider Switch Service operates.

    You do not need a FastPass+ selection in order to use the Rider Switch Service.  However if the first riding adult has a FastPass+ selection then they may line up in that queue while the other one waits with your little one(s).  The second riding adult will be able to use their Rider Switch pass in order to bypass the standby queue and does not need a FastPass+ selection.  Usually Guests using the Rider Switch pass will be instructed to use the FastPass+ queue.  The Cast Member assisting at each attraction will be able to instruct you about the method used at their attraction and can answer any of your questions.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Have a MAGICAL vacation Michelle and please let us know if you have any further Disney vacation planning questions.  We are always happy to help!
