    Hi, Can an expectant mother join the queues of rides with the rest of their party, and not ride the ride? Such as Millennium Falcon or Rise of the Resistance queues?

    Hello Nicole, 

    As the current UK-based Panelist here at planDisney, it's my absolute pixie-dusted pleasure to welcome you here today! 

    Nicole, it's so great that you've taken the time to stop by with such an important question about your holiday at Walt Disney World Resort.  After all, when Mouseketeers of all generations visit the most magical place on earth, it's only natural for them to want to experience everything together as a family. 

    And, one of the most magical things about spending time together at Walt Disney World Resort, is that there's truly something for each and every member of your family to enjoy, from the young to the simply young at heart!

    With this in mind, I'm more than happy to share my own family's experiences of visiting Walt Disney World Resort as part of a multi-generational family group.

    Several years ago, my whole family was waiting in line together for The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  But, at the very end of the queue, before we were invited to enter the lift up to the 13 floor, my then-teenaged daughter, announced she wasn't actually too keen on visiting The 5th Dimension!

    However, this minor detail didn't mean that everyone in my family had to miss out!  We just explained our needs to the nearest Cast Member.  After which, the Cast Member kindly escorted my daughter to the nearest exit. 

    This 'hidden' exit meant that my teenager had a safe route to the gift shop where she could wait for us to exit the Attraction after we'd experienced the Twilight Zone!

    Nicole, I understand that an expectant Mothers needs are very different from those of a Guest who no longer wishes to enjoy an Attraction.  Therefore, my best suggestion would be for you to always seek the wise, and safety-conscious advice from the nearest Cast Member located at the entrance of each Attraction.  Cast Members truly are Wild About Safety at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Additionally, before leaving home you may wish to search online at the Walt Disney Travel Company to appraise each Attraction at Walt Disney World Resort.  It can be so useful to learn more about each individual ride, or experience including the incredible offerings found at Stars Wars: Galaxy's Edge.

    Guests can even research the current accessibility guidelines for each Attraction at Walt Disney World Resort and discover any pertinent safety, or Attraction advisories for expectant Mothers.

    Lastly, I wonder if Rider Switch might work well for your family!  Rider Switch is available at select Attractions at Walt Disney World Resort and works by allowing one Guest to wait with a non-rider (or riders) whilest the rest of the party goes ahead and enjoys the Attraction. 

    When the other Guests return from riding the Attraction, they are able to wait with the non-riding Guests, and the awaiting Guest can board the Attraction without having to join the regular line again.  To enjoy the benefits of Rider Switch, again simply ask the nearest Cast Member as you enter an Attraction.  It's as easy as that!

    I hope I've been able to provide a little guidance and reassurance for you today Nicole.  If you should have any further questions, then please do write back to me here at planDisney!

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
