    Have a 1 and 3 yr old. Wondering about the child switch policy- if one is too little for a ride and the other isn't, can we switch off- ride with our 3 yr old, then parents switch and 3 yr old rides again with other? Can Fast Pass combine with this policy?

    Hello Jamie,

    Walt Disney World's Rider Switch Service is a wonderful way to make sure everyone has a magical time riding their favorite attractions at the Walt Disney World Parks. You are correct; when utilizing the Rider Switch Service, simply inform the Cast Member at the entrance of the attraction's queue that you will need a Rider Swap Pass. Now if you are not using FastPass+, your husband and 3 year old will enter the standby queue and be on their way for their adventure. As soon as, they are done you and one other Guest, it can be your 3 year old again, will then head to the FastPass+ queue line and present your Rider Swap pass to the Cast Member waiting there. You and your Guest will then continue through the FastPass+ queue to now have your turn and enjoy your adventure. 

    If your husband and 3 year old have a FastPass+ reservation, they would not enter the normal queue line but instead scan their MagicBand and enter the FastPass+ queue. After they are finished, you and your 3 year old will enter the FastPass+ queue as well, your Rider Swap Pass is your ticket to the FastPass+ queue, so you will not need a reservation. 

    Enjoy your upcoming magical and memorable stay at Walt Disney World and if I can be of any further pixie dusted assistance feel free to ask.
