    My family are headed to Disneyland in April. I have a 2year old son who cannot ride on some of the rides therefore I will have to wait as my husband rides with my older daughter. Is it true I can skip the line and ride because my family already waited?

    Hey Howdy Hey Nicole!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for your family vacation to the Happiest Place on Earth. There are so many experiences and attractions that your whole family will be able to enjoy together at Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Keep in mind that any attraction without a height requirement can be experienced by the smallest Guests including your little toddler. We took our two year old on so many attractions that he just adored such as Peter Pan's Flight, Pirates of the Caribbean, and "it's a small world" to name a few.

    Just because you have your little one, though, doesn't mean you have to miss out on the more thrilling attractions. This is where Disneyland's Rider Switch Service will really come in handy for your family. With this service you can take turns riding an attraction with your family members if a little one cannot ride. When it is your turn to ride, you can skip the standby queue and head in through the FASTPASS entrance for the attraction. To utilize this service, make sure your entire party lets the Cast Member at the ride's queue entrance know who will be staying behind with a non-rider while the first group rides. The Cast Member will then scan that person's ticket giving them essentially a FASTPASS that is good for one hour. We love that having our little one with us means we can still ride our favorites like Space Mountain and Splash Mountain without being inconvenienced. 

    Please return if you need any more assistance, and I hope you have a Fantasmic day!
