    4 adults are traveling with a 1 and 5 year old. The 5 year old may be tall enough to ride a lot of rides but having never been may be afraid to ride some. Can we use Child Swap for him? The policy on the Disney website is confusing (two diff versions).

    Hi Ana,

    You can use the Rider Swap service for anyone who is not able to stay alone and requires an adults supervision while the other adult goes on an attraction (some guests may have other disabilities that require adult supervision regardless of their age or height).  Please see the following which is taken directly from the WDW website:

    Rider Swap
    Through Disney's rider swap policy, adults may still be able to experience an attraction if they have children who are too young or who do not wish to ride. Parents take turns experiencing the attraction while waiting in line only once.

    Please ask a cast member at any of the select attractions for any additional help.  Have a magical trip!

    Best wishes,
