    Hello, my husband and I are taking our two girls in May. One is a very tall 3 year old and the other will be just a year old, my question is can we use rider switch with a fastpass? Just trying to get the most of our vacation the easiest way possible.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sarah! 

    Rider Switch is a great way for families to save time when traveling with Mouseketeers who aren't quite tall enough to ride some of the attractions. I'm pleased to tell you that you are able to use FastPass+ in conjunction with the Rider Switch Service, and like you said, it's a great way to get the most out of your vacation. When you want to use Rider Switch, approach the Cast Member at the attraction podium and scan your MagicBands so you can redeem your FastPass+ selection and be issued a Rider Switch entitlement. This way, the first riding group is able to bypass the standby queue and save a bit more time, and time is precious when you're traveling with little ones! When the first group is done riding, the second group can use the Rider Switch entitlement to also enter through the FastPass+ queue. Your eldest daughter is really lucky, because since the Rider Switch pass is good for up to three guests, she can ride twice if she wants to! There are attractions offering this service at all four of the theme parks at Walt Disney World Resort, so you don't have to miss out on any of your favorites. 

    Have a magical day, Sarah!
