    Will we be able to use Lightning Lane selections AND use rider swap? If Mom and kid have a Lightning selection for a ride, would dad be able to use rider swap to ride too without having to purchase a Lightning Lane pass? How will LL and RS work together?

    Hey there Jamie! 

    Thanks so much for stopping by with such a great question. I have an older thrill-seeker as well as a younger little one who does not meet many height requirements, so I often find myself taking advantage of the Rider Switch Service. 

    Now, Jamie, since the Disney Genie+ service has not launched yet, I can only offer my personal experience. 

    When the FastPass+ service was in operation, all guests taking advantage of the Rider Switch Service in conjunctions with a Fast Pass+ selection were required to have a valid FastPass+ selection for that ride. I would assume that the same still holds true for the Lightning Lane selections, however, we are still waiting for more exact specifications of the Genie+ service to be released. 

    I recommend that you stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more details on Genie+, or check with a Cast Member once you arrive, but before you make your Lightning Lane selections. I have found that the Cast Members under the blue tents in the parks know almost everything about the My Disney Experience Mobile App, so I am sure that they would be able to offer some guidance. 

    See you real soon!
