    I want to bring my 3 yr old grand daughter can we still go on the rides what I'm getting at is there like a kid swap?

    Hi Christy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am the mom to a 3 year old and a 5 year old and I have enjoyed the Walt Disney World Resorts several times with my little guys. With the Rider Switch program, everyone can enjoy the attractions on his or her "must-do" list! You entire group will head to the attraction queue entrance, including your granddaughter who will not be riding. Explain to the Cast Member that you would like to use Rider Switch and the first group to enjoy the attraction will be given a Rider Switch lanyard and be directed into the attraction queue. Then your little princess and the adult who will be waiting with her are free to enjoy other areas of the theme park. When I am waiting with my little guy, I like to enjoy an attraction that that is on his "must-do" list, such as The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, or enjoy a tasty treat!

    As the first group proceeds through the queue, they will exchange their Rider Switch lanyard for a ticket, which they will need to hold on to as they enjoy the attraction. Once they are finished, they can meet up with the rest of your group and give the Rider Switch ticket to the adult who didn't yet ride the attraction. Since the Rider Switch ticket is good for two Guests, no one has to enjoy the attraction alone! While the second riding group enjoys the attraction, your little princess and the other Guests in your party can enjoy other things in the theme park!

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