    Hello, If I have a fast pass as well as my 9 year old son for the Avatar ride and we want to use Rider Switch so my husband can go on it with him as well, does my husband need to reserve a fast pass as well or no? I'm hoping 'no'!

    Hi Cynthia and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Avatar Flight of Passage is truly a wonder to behold. I had heard from my friends about how amazing and beautiful the attraction is and now that I've visited Pandora -  The World of Avatar I agree with them whole-heartedly. Rider Switch is a fabulous service offered by Disney Parks to accommodate families with members who are not able to board an attraction and cannot be left unsupervised. I'm not clear from your question if you have a younger child as well who would not be able to enjoy Avatar Flight of Passage.  Guests wishing to enjoy Avatar Flight of Passage must be 44 inches tall so younger, smaller children will have to have time to grow a bit to experience this attraction.

    If you do have a younger child who does not meet the height requirement then you can benefit from the Rider Switch program. You and your 9-year-old son would need valid FastPass+ selections to enter the FastPass+ line. Your whole family would approach the Cast Member and let them know you need to use the Rider Switch service. Your husband would be given a time to return to the FastPass+ line. He would not need to have a FastPass+ selection for the attraction. One of my fellow panelists, Ashley, has a great answer about how Rider Switch works
