    Can your big kids ride an attraction twice using rider swap even if you all have fast passes. If 2 people in our group stay out with our little ones can we bring our big kids on the attraction again when it’s our turn even if they already used fast pass

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Megan!

    Rider Switch is going to be such a great tool for you on your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, especially if you've got a group of big kids and a group of little ones. Everyone is going to get the chance to ride the attractions they want without anyone being left out, so let's chat a bit about how to best arrange things to make the most out of those Rider Switch entitlements.

    It sounds to me like you're going to be using FastPass+ and Rider Switch together so that the first riding group does not wait in the standby line, but instead enters the attraction using the FastPass+ queue. I'm pleased to tell you that your big kids are able to ride again if they want to because the Rider Switch return time you're given so you can stay behind and look after your little ones while everyone rides is good for up to three return guests. That means that for each person that has a Rider Switch entitlement, two guests are also able to come with them back through the FastPass+ queue to ride the attraction, even if they just used their FastPass+ to ride with the first riding group. I'm sure that's going to be a fun bonus for your older kids on some hot ticket attractions like Slinky Dog Dash at Disney's Hollywood Studios, or Avatar Flight of Passage at Disney's Animal Kingdom!

    I hope this answers your question, Megan, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
