    Hi, Im visiting the theme parks in a party of 6 including a 2 year old who isn't tall enough for all the rides so at least one member of the group will have to stay with him, is there a way for that person to then jump the queues to have their ride?

    Hi Lauren,

    Disney offers the perfect solution for your travel party's needs in the form of complementary Rider Switch services. If the 2 year old child does not meet the height requirement or one of the other Guests in your party does not wish to board a particular attraction, this won't be a problem. With Rider Switch, one adult can wait with the non-rider(s) while the rest of your party enjoys the attraction. When the other adult returns, they can supervise the non-riding Guests and the waiting adult can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular line again!

    It's also possible to combine Rider Switch with the single-rider line at any attraction offering these convenient services. Simply go to the ride's entrance and ask the Cast Member for a Rider Switch pass. Then one adult can use the single-rider lane to get through the attraction line faster. Please note that it is truly a single-rider line. If there are two or more people from your travel party going through the single-rider queue, they will most likely be separated to ride the attraction.

    Did You Know? It's now possible to reserve 1, 2 or up to 3 FastPass+ selections ahead of time, depending on availability, for everyone in your travel party.

    Disney Mom Tips:

    1. Please take a moment to read this EXCELLENT Disney Parks Blog entry about height requirements for the most popular attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort.
    2. Read up on how easy it is Planning for Pre-School Kids & Little Ones.
