    My husband and I are traveling to Disneyworld with our 3 small children. Are we able to utilize rider swap so each of the adults could ride Tron or Guardian of the Galaxies? Can this be done if we purchase the individual lanes?

    Hi Laura,

    Your trip is fast approaching! Your kids are going to have an absolute blast exploring all of the exciting rides, attractions, and shows at Disney World. Lucky for you there are also some fantastic thrill rides to provide some excitement for you and your husband as well.

    TRON Lightcycle / Run is so much fun! I highly recommend making an Individual Lightning Lane purchase for this ride because you will be able to choose a ride reservation time after the sun goes down. This ride is special any time of day, but it is epic at night. If you only plan to experience it once, nighttime is the way to go. Rider Switch is available for this ride and can be used in conjunction with your Lightning Lane purchase but it does not need to be. I find that it is easier to manage our kids while they are doing something that they want to do instead of just waiting on Mom or Dad.

    As a result, one of us will use the Lightning Lane to go ride the attraction while the other adult takes the kids to ride something they will enjoy or to get a snack. A great option right near TRON is the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover which typically has a short line and is an easy ride for one parent to manage multiple children while riding. Then we just meet up and switch places! The kids also get a little alone time with each parent and you both get a break.

    Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is only available with an Individual Lightning Lane purchase or by securing a boarding group through the Virtual Queue system. You must have one of these to utilize Rider Swap but like TRON you can use the Individual Lightning Lane system and have your kids enjoy something else while each of you rides instead of waiting in the Rider Swap area. My kids love hitting up Club Cool while they wait for us to ride Guardians of the Galaxy. This is a fun place where you can try sodas from all around the world. It is super close to the ride so it is a great place to swap. While the second parent is riding, one of us normally takes the kids over to a character meet and greet for a picture with their favorite Disney pals!

    Happy Planning,
