    I have fp+ booked for myself and son (4) for Seven Dwarf Mine train and then husband and daughter (2) for Winnie the Pooh at the same time. Is there any way to switch who goes on with my son? My daughter doesn't meet the height requirement.

    Hi Katherine,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    If you don't want to experience the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train with your son at all, then your best bet would be to try copying your FastPass+ selections over to him (availability permitting) and then modifying your selections. If that doesn't work, try cancelling your FastPass+ selection for that attraction and re-booking your husband's immediately afterwards so that no one else jumps on the FastPass+ that you've just made available. Because there are no guarantees that you'll be able to grab this selection for your husband once you've made it available, I would recommend keeping your selections "as is" and checking whether you can switch FastPass+ riders with the Cast Member at the attraction's entrance. 

    Another option may be to use the Rider Switch service. Many attractions with a height requirement, including the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, offer this service, which allows two or more adults to take turns waiting with children who are too small to experience an attraction (or any other Guest that doesn’t wish to do so), without the need to wait in line twice. Plus, your son will get to ride it twice: once with you, using his FastPass+ selection, and once with your husband, using the Rider Switch service. However, your husband will likely still need to have his own FastPass+ selection in order to experience this extremely popular attraction. Once again, please check with a Cast Member at the attraction. 

    Have a Magical Day,
