    Visiting Disney World with an infant for the first time. If my husband and I have fast passes and want to ride together can we still get rider swap passes for my sister who holds my baby? How does rider swap and fast passes work?

    Hello, Melissa!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are delighted to answer your question regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation! Experiencing Walt Disney World through the eyes of a child is the BEST EVER!

    I can honestly say the Rider Switch Service is INCREDIBLE and such a HUGE help for families with small children. The answer to your question is absolutely YES! You and your husband will be able to ride a specific Disney attraction while your sister takes care of your infant.

    This is how the Rider Switch Service works:

    When you arrive at a Disney attraction your infant cannot ride, walk up to the Cast Member at the Fastpass+ entrance of the attraction with your infant and ask for a Rider Switch pass. Then, give your baby over to your sister while you and you husband ride the attraction. The TIGGER-ific thing is that after you meet your sister and baby after the attraction is over, your sister will then be able to ride the same attraction without waiting in the regular queue! Your sister will not need a Fastpass+ reservation to take advantage of using the Rider Switch service. That also means you and your husband can take turns riding the attraction again with your sister! How cool is that? I love happy endings!

    If you have other questions, please let us know! 

    Have a MAGICAL day!
