    Hello, I have a question about rider switch. We are going to WDW in September and are a family of five. The youngest is 4. If my husband and two older children have a fast pass for Space Mountain, do I also need a fast pass or can I use rider switch? Tara

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Joseph. I'm so glad you stopped by with this great question!

     I have a family of five too, and our youngest is only 10-months old, so we will surely be using Disney's Rider Switch Service during our upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. It's my pleasure to answer your question! For attractions that your little one is just too little to ride, simply approach the greeting Cast Member at the entrance of an eligible attraction. Make sure everyone in your party is present and request to use Rider Switch. In your specific example for Space Mountain, a Rider Switch entitlement will be loaded onto your MagicBand and you'll be asked to wait with your 4-year old while your husband and older children ride. If your husband and older kiddos have a FastPass+ for Space Mountain, they may enter the FastPass+ line. Once they exit the attraction, you can use your Rider Switch entitlement to enter the FastPass+ line with up to two Guests, which means those lucky big kids get to blast off into outer space a second time! Since your Rider Switch entitlement gives you access to the FastPass+ line, you wouldn't need a FastPass+ to bypass the Standby line for Space Mountain. Isn't that great?

     As a busy mom of three, I'm sure you love saving time as much as I do. Did you know that you can place mobile food and beverage orders at select Quick-Service dining locations? This convenient feature on the My Disney Experience mobile app saves lots of precious time in the theme parks!

     I hope this answered your question. Please visit us again soon - we'd love to help you plan your visit!
