    Hi there. Can we use a Fastpass with rider switch? My 2 year old does not meet the height requirement for Soarin but my husband, 5 year old, and I really want to go. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Suzann!

    Absolutely! Your family can certainly use FastPass+ in conjunction with Rider Switch.

    Rider Switch passes can easily be added to your My Disney Experience account. To use the super convenient service, your entire family will need to be present at the attraction. Those riding last, will have their MagicBands – or theme park tickets – scanned to add the Rider Switch passes to their account.

    For example, your husband and 5-year-old will enter the Soarin’ FastPass+ queue, provided they already have FastPass+ reservations for the attraction; otherwise, they will to go through the stand-by lane. Once they exit the ride, you could enter the FastPass+ queue with the Rider Switch pass that was scanned earlier at the entrance of the ride.

    In your situation, I would recommend securing FastPass+ reservations for your oldest child and your husband; then making a different FastPass+ selection for you and your youngest. That way, while your husband takes your oldest on thrill rides your little one doesn't quite measure up to yet, you two are also having fun!
