    Hi! I have a question about rider switch. My daughter is 9 but don't like any thrill rides, I love splash mountain and rock n roller coaster, if she is too scared to ride can we use rider switch for the other person in our party or wait again?

    Welcome back Jennifer! Thanks for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel.
    I am also a big fan of Splash Mountain. I can’t imagine visiting the Walt Disney World Resort without riding it! 
    Well, I have good news. Disney’s “rider switch” is very convenient for adults traveling with kids or guests unable to ride some attractions for many different reasons. Even your daughter being nine years old, you will be able to use this amazing tool, and won’t need to go back in line again.
    This is how it works: make sure the attraction you are planning to ride offers this special service (Splash Mountain and Rock’n’Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith do!) and get in the regular line with all your party. When it is your turn to ride, the other adult will be taken to a designated area with your daughter who is not riding. When you get back, it is time for the other adult, who was waiting, to ride, without waiting in line. A cast member will take him to attraction’s entrance. Make sure you inform a Cast Member at the attraction about it and he will assist you. It’s very simple and convenient.
    Let us know if you have further questions.
    Have a “zip-a-dee-doo-dah” day!
