    Do almost all rides have the child swap feature? I read somewhere it is a lanyard now vs the tickets they used to give us? Can someone explain to me how that works! Thank You

    Hi Heather!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Rider Switch is one of the ways my family makes the most of our Walt Disney World Resort vacation because everyone can enjoy the attractions on his or her "must-do" list, but no one feels left out of the fun! The complete list of attractions that offer the Rider Switch service can be found on the Rider Switch webpage. Generally attractions with Guest height limitations and FastPass+ reservations will allow you do use Rider Switch for your group. While lanyards are part of the system, they have not completely replaced tickets. Your entire party, including the group who will not be riding, will proceed to the front of the queue and notify the Cast Member that you will be using Rider Switch. The Cast Member will give the first group or riders a lanyard that you will wear or carry through the queue. The next Cast Member you see in the queue will exchange the lanyard for a Rider Switch ticket, which can be used for the other members of your party to enjoy the attraction using the FastPass+ queue.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
