    Just my husband, baby, and I will be going in a few weeks. Can we all 3 wait in the queues together that we’ll be using rider swap for, and then husband and baby would just take the exit before it’s my turn to ride? We’d like to stay together longer.

    Welcome to planDisney, Hannah. I believe everyone should experience Walt Disney World, no matter how young or old! All are welcome. Our youngest was 6 months on their first visit, so we have lots of experience with Rider Switch, and I'm delighted to talk you through how it works. 

    Once you arrive at the queue entrance of your chosen ride, let's say Soarin' Around the World, as it's a classic must-do ride for our family. Speak with a friendly Cast Member at the entrance of the queue. The first Guest using Rider Switch will wait in the usual queue line (if both Guests hold Genie+ you may use a booked Lightning Lane), and once they have experienced the ride, the second Guest, who will have waited with your baby, can use the Lightning Lane entrance for the ride. I understand you would like to queue together, but we've always found this to be a great opportunity to change the baby or, in this example, grab a snack from the nearby Sunshine Seasons.

    Please know there is so much you can all experience together as a family, away from the epic thrill rides. Our youngest loves the parades, and rides that welcome all Guests, such as Peter Pan's Flight, will mesmerize you and your little Mouseketeer. 

    The planDisney panelists LeAndra and Leslie have created a helpful video series with the best tips for visiting Walt Disney World with young children. It's a great watch before your adventure. Should your little one (or you) need a moment of calm in the Parks, my tip is to head for the Baby Care Centres. They're like a little baby oasis in Walt Disney World.  

    Hannah, I hope this helps you and your bundle of joy to create magical memories at Walt Disney World. I would love to help if you need anything further! Louise.

Meet the Panelist: Louise, United Kingdom

Welcome to planDisney! I'm happiest in perpetual planning mode for our next Walt Disney World trip - it's my chance to catch a bit of Disney magic in-between visits.

Walt Disney World provides the ultimate sense of escapism! I understand how much guests want to get out of their trip, especially when travelling internationally. Please let me help you prepare a 'practically perfect in every way' journey so you can be truly whisked away by Disney magic!
