    How is Disney doing rider swap now that there is no fast pass line for the second rider to enter?

    Hey there, Seth! Welcome to planDisney! I’m so glad you’re here. 

    As you have alluded to in your question, you are aware that next time you pay a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, things will look and feel somewhat different to what you may have been used to in the past. One of these differences is the lack of FastPass+ availability at this time, given that attendance is limited in the 4 Disney Theme Parks at this time. This and other interventions are being implemented to make everyone’s visits as safe and as magical as possible! You can read more about these changes and what to expect within the Experience Update pages.

    Rider Switch
    is an amazing offering that allows all the members in your party to experience the attractions they desire, while others can wait with those who cannot or do not wish to. Regarding the availability of this feature at this time, I passed your question along to a Cast Member in Guest Services. I was told that this feature will continue to be offered when available. While wait times are likely to be lower at this time, the best way to ensure that you and your travel party are taken care of will be to indicate your needs to the Cast Member at the attraction you wish to experience. In certain cases, the line that would have been used for the FastPass+ queue is now being utilized for both Guests with Disabilities and Rider Switch. While this may not be possible in all instances, you can rest assured that Cast Members will do everything they can to sprinkle their pixie dust for you!

    Seth, I hope that this information is helpful to you as you continue making plans! Meanwhile, do not forget to make your Theme Park reservations via the Park Pass Reservation system in advance of your next visit to Walt Disney World. And know that we at planDisney are here for you, waiting at the ready, anytime we can be of service again!

    Wishing you many magical moments,
