    We are heading to WDW on April 16th! What is the easiest way to get fast passes for a ride if our party needs to split up due to the fact that we have a 20 month old that can't ride certain ones?

    Hi Melanie,
    I have been bringing my kids to the Walt Disney World Resort since they were six weeks old. It's really easy to use those FastPass+ reservations and still get to go on all the attractions with some members of your party by using a great program called the Rider Switch service. Here's how it works: you bring the baby and your entire party to the Cast Member at the entrance of an attraction and ask for a Rider Switch pass. They will give you the pass and you (and anyone else that would like to stay behind) hangs out while the rest of your party enjoys the attraction. They can wait in either the FastPass+ line if that attraction is one of your selections or the regular standby line. Once they are finished, you hand the baby off to one of your party members, take your Rider Switch pass to the FastPass+ line and you can then enjoy the attraction with three additional members in your party.

    I hope this helps you plan out your days without worrying about missing out on all the fun!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
