    Can FastPass and Rider switch be combined? Ex: one parent gets a FastPass for a ride. The second parent does NOT get a FP for that same ride. Then, after the first parent is done, the second parent goes in the rider switch line and rides. Is this allowed

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jamie! Rider Switch is such a convenient vacation planning tool for families who have little ones who aren't tall enough to ride certain thrill attractions. The Rider Switch entitlement allows adults to take turns watching their Mouseketeers so they can both ride their favorite attractions and not have to wait in the standby line twice. 

    Rider Switch has recently been made even easier to use because it has gone fully digital and is now integrated into your MagicBand, with your entitlements even showing up in your My Disney Experience app! With this recent upgrade to the system, Cast Members are now able to check that everyone in the party has a valid FastPass+ when you tap your MagicBand to be issued a Rider Switch entitlement and you want to use the FastPass+ entrance. While you can certainly use FastPass+ selections in conjunction with Rider Switch to save yourself and your family a little time, everyone who wants to enter the attraction through the FastPass+ queue will need to have one. The great news is that, since the Rider Switch entitlement is good for up to three guests, if any of the little ones traveling with you are tall enough to ride, they can enjoy the attraction twice if they want to! Rider Switch is available at select attractions at all four theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort, so be sure to check out the list while you're planning your vacation and FastPass+ selections.

    Have a magical day, Jamie!
