    We have 3 children, one which will be covered under a DAS and 2 younger children. If they all want to ride but too young to sit on their own, is my husband or I allowed to use ride switch 2nd time to go with 3rd child once we have been with other 2?

    Hi there, Angela!

    Thanks for visiting us with your question. I'm happy to assist as you prepare for your August visit.

    Walt Disney World Resort is such an incredible family destination, made even more accessible with services like Disability Access Service (DAS) and Rider Switch. My family has used Rider Switch on a few past visits and it's always been so helpful! My daughter especially enjoyed being able to have fun around the parks with me while her older brother rode his favorite attractions with Dad. When they finished, my husband and I swapped children and I got a turn to experience the fun too!

    Since guests under the age of 7 must be seated with someone aged 14+, I understand that visiting with three children can sometimes make attraction seating a challenge. Guest favorites like Haunted Mansion and Peter Pan's Flight do allow parties of 3 to be seated together, but your experience will vary from one attraction to another. I'd recommend speaking with a Cast Member before entering the attraction queue or DAS return area for guidance. I can't guarantee that a Rider Switch will be available in all situations, but they will help you devise a plan so no one has to miss out on the fun. 

    There are plenty of experiences tailored specifically for little ones in each theme park. Last year, my daughter and I visited Tom Sawyer Island at Magic Kingdom Park for the first time and loved exploring. I don't know what took us so long to check it out but the island was full of caves to discover and places for the kids to run, climb, and stretch their legs. If your crew hasn't visited yet you might want to pencil in a visit there for your summer plans. 

    Angela, I hope this was helpful. We'd be happy to offer even more recommendations if you'd like to write back for further assistance.

    Magic and memories,
