    2 Adults , 12yo 5yo. my guest that would not want to ride is my mom. Can we book a FastPass for all of us but use rider swap so that I could go on the ride individually with each of my daughters so my older one wouldn’t have to sit alone. (Rollercoaster)

    Hey there, Amanda! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm excited to see that you're learning all of the tips before your vacation begins! Rider Switch at the Walt Disney World Resort is a great way for families of younger kids who don't meet a height requirement- or in your case adults that aren't interested in riding- to still enjoy some thrilling attractions. 

    According to the Rider Switch policy, before you scan your MagicBand in the Fastpass+ line, approach the Cast Member with your entire party and let them know you'd like to use the Rider Switch option. They will direct you from there. 

    It might helpful to know that there are a few attractions for which, in your scenario, you wouldn't need to use Rider Switch. For example, Haunted Mansion can accommodate three people and Space Mountain as there is only one seat per row (in essence you each will sit individually). Take a look at the full list of Attractions Offering Rider Switch before you arrive. 

    Amanda, I hope this helps as you are planning your park days. Come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with any other questions you might have! 

    Thanks for stopping by,
