    Do both adults using rider switch need to have a fast pass for the ride? For example if I get on 7DMT with my daughter using our fast pass will my husband need a FP also to bypass stand by? Or will he have to wait?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Krystina!

    Rider Switch is going to be super convenient for your family to use on your upcoming vacation. It's a great way for families with little ones to save some time and make sure that no one misses out on their favorite attractions that may have a height requirement. The service recently underwent an upgrade to make it even easier to use, and now it has been integrated with your MagicBand and your My Disney Experience app. Instead of receiving a return time on a paper ticket, now you just tap your MagicBand to receive your Rider Switch entitlement and your return time will show up in your daily plans in My Disney Experience!

    Since the whole process has gone digital, Cast Members now have the ability to check which guests have a valid FastPass+ for the attraction, so if you and your daughter want to ride Seven Dwarfs Mine Train using the FastPass+ entrance while your husband gets a Rider Switch entitlement and waits behind with your other little ones, all three of you will need to be holding a valid FastPass+. Rider Switch is about to become your daughter's favorite thing though because the entitlement is valid for up to three guests so she can ride twice: once with you and once with your husband if she wants to! There are attractions that participate in Rider Switch at all four theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort, so be sure to check the list when you're planning your vacation.

    Have a magical day, Krystina!
