    Hello. My family and I are going to WDW in March and it's our first time. Super excited. :) I have a question. If I get my fast passes can I still get a parent switch pass, without my husband having to get a fast pass too? Hope I made sense.

    Hi Yesenia,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! A first-time visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is so exciting; you must be counting down the days! Be sure to get a "First Visit" Celebration Recognition Button when you check-in at your Resort Hotel or at Guest Services at any of the Theme Parks. It's so much fun to share the excitement of your first trip with Cast Members and other Guests! 
    Rider Switch allows adult Guests to take turns waiting with little ones or Guests unable to ride an Attraction. As a general rule, everyone in your party is required to have FastPass+ for an Attraction to enter the FastPass+ line. However, Cast Members at the Attraction’s entrance may not always require the second member of your party to have a scheduled FastPass+. In my experience, the Cast Members did not require me to have a FastPass+ when I went as part of the second party. This is based on my personal experience, so be sure to check with the Cast Members at the Attraction as to what they will allow.

    I hope this information helps. Please stop back by and let us know if we can help you with any additional vacation planning questions!

    Magical Wishes,
