    If I'm using the rider switch does everyone need a fast pass or just ppl in group #1??

    Hi, Mike! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for stopping by with your question. FastPass+ makes our visits to theme parks so easy and convenient. I can make our plans right at home, well before we begin our magical day. If I have to modify anything, I just hop on the My Disney Experience mobile app and, with a snip snap, the job's a game! Rider Switch Service became digital this past year and can now be linked to your My Disney Experience account once you obtain one. In November, I was able to utilize the system while we had our one-year-old niece with us. We really appreciated having the system now digital so we did not have to keep up with, and possibly lose, a paper ticket! Anytime we questioned our Rider Switch return window, we just pulled up the mobile app.

    Mike, per the terms of use and the way it was explained to us, with the service now being digital and linked to your My Disney Experience account, the Cast Member is able to double check that the guests in Group 2 also have the FastPass+ selection for that attraction before assigning the Rider Switch. To be on the safe side, I do recommend that you make a FastPass+ selection for all members of your party. If you prefer, you can instead make a FastPass+ selection for the little one and the adult who plans to also wait for another attraction in the area. While everyone else is riding that attraction, your little one can be off experiencing pint-size fun!

    I hope this helps you plan a magical day at Walt Disney World Resort! Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
