    During early entry at Hollywood Studios, we will ride Rise of the Resistance first thing, but we have an infant in our party. If we do rider switch, how much time does the 2nd party have to use rider swap on Rise once the first party exits? 1hr or all day?

    Bright Suns Charles! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! Very soon you will be leaving this planet to a galaxy far, far away for an Early Theme Park Entry on the planet of Batuu at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Set that alarm, to gain your 30-minute early access to Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. This attraction is truly out of the world. However, I am sorry to inform you, that currently, this attraction is not part of the Rider Switch program. Alternatively, you could use this program to experience Millenium Falcon: Smuggler's Run.

    Rider Switch is a fantastic option for traveling parties with little ones who cannot make the height requirement or chooses to not ride an attraction. As you approach the attraction with your entire party, please inform the Cast Members of your wish to use Rider Switch. They will create a "Party 2" for at least one adult to remain with the guest not riding the attraction. "Party 1" will be allowed to enter the queue while "Party 2" waits either outside of the attraction or in a designated area. After "Party 1" has completed the ride, everyone meets back up, and "Party 2" with one other guest from "Party 1" can skip the queue line once their pass is validated by a Cast Member. This process should be completed subsequent to the original party finishing the attraction because you cannot hold more than one Rider Switch pass at a time. Scroll down the Rider Switch page to see all of the attractions at Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks with this service. 

    For me, no visit to Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge is complete without a Ronto Wrap from Ronto Roasters and Green Milk from the Milk Stand. Be sure to utilize Mobile Order at these locations to minimize your wait time.

    And finally, stop by the Baby Care Center for a peaceful, air-conditioned location for all your baby's needs. The Baby Care Centers feature full kitchens, nursing rooms, family restrooms, and supplies for purchase. My pal, Anne Marie, will give you a walk-through of the Baby Care Center at Magic Kingdom Park.
