    My husband and daughter have a FP, and I was going to get a ride swap. However, while my husband and daughter are riding, I was going to use my own fp to take my son on a different ride. Will I be able to get a RS if I have an unused FP for the same time

    Hi, there!

     Natasha, I'm so excited to hear you're planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You and your family are going to have the most magical time together!

     I'm glad you'll be using Rider Switch during your stay. This awesome service is super convenient for families traveling with a little one in tow! Selecting a FastPass+ experience for you and your son to enjoy together while your husband and daughter experience an attraction that your little guy is just too little for is a great idea. You don't need to worry about receiving a Rider Switch entitlement during the same window of time you have a FastPass+ scheduled. While your Rider Switch entitlement does allow you to enter the FastPass+ line, it does not affect the FastPass+ experiences you already have scheduled, and your FastPass+ experiences do not affect your Rider Switch entitlement. Just be sure that you visit the entrance of the eligible Rider Switch attraction as a family to request the service. You'll be issued your Rider Switch entitlement on your MagicBand or card at that time. Then, you and your son can go have some fun while the other two ride! Did you know that your Rider Switch entitlement allows you up to two Guests? This means that your daughter will get to ride a second time, and you won't have to experience the attraction alone! 

     Don't forget to download the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to your visit. It's here that you'll be able to see your Rider Switch entitlements and FastPass+ experiences listed. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Natasha. Please let us know if you have any other questions!
