    Can you use fast pass with rider switch? Is it possible for my husband to fast pass a ride and request rider switch for me? Without using a fastpass on me for that ride?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jennifer! We’re so happy you stopped by to bring us your question.

    As a parent with kids that have a wide age gap, my husband and I love using Rider Switch. It’s probably our favorite service for attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort. I love that it allows us to enjoy the rides our older son wishes to ride but our little one is not quite tall enough for yet. Plus, big bro gets to enjoy the rides twice when mom and dad take turns. I’d say it’s one of his favorite services as well!

    Jennifer, you can certainly combine the use of your FastPass+ and the Rider Switch Service for attractions that offer these services. It’s a smart approach that will allow you to spread out your FastPass+ bookings while at the same time enjoy the convenience of Rider Switch. To combine your FastPass+ with Rider Switch, simply alert the Cast Member at the entrance of the attraction that you are wishing to do a Rider Switch. They will then provide you with a paper FastPass+ good for up to three people to use at a later time. The benefit of combining a FP+ and Rider Switch is that both parties taking turns to ride will be able to use the FP+ line, saving you time while allowing you the flexibility to enjoy the parks in a way that fits your family’s needs. I love the way Disney vacations make that happen!

    Be sure to mark all your important planning dates in your calendar, like your FastPass+ booking window at 60-days in advance if you’re staying on property (30-days if staying off-site), and your 180-day Advance Dining Reservation booking window.

    Have fun planning and be sure to come back and see us again soon!
