    I have made FP+ reservations for rides that my 5 year old twins are not tall enough for at HS and AK but that my husband, older son and I would like to ride. What do you suggest I do with my twins' FPs since my husband and I can't accompany them?

    Welcome, Jessica!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your FastPass+ selection planning question. My kiddos are several years apart, so I completely understand that it can be a little difficult to plan selections with everyone in mind. I'm happy to share a few tips on what has worked previously for my family.

    Often times, since we have 3 kids, we let each one pick a FastPass+ participating experience and all enjoy it as a family. If our oldest happens to pick one that the little ones aren't quite big enough for yet, my husband and I alternate who takes him. As a thrill seeker, I know it's sometimes hard for our pre-teen to sit through It's Tough To Be A Bug when I know he'd much rather have used his FastPass+ selection for Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain, but the family memories made together make the sacrifice all worth the while. 

    For bigger rides that my husband and I just can't miss, we use the Rider Switch Service. This way one of us can take our older son while the other waits with our younger two children and then we can switch. Our oldest likes this option because he also gets the opportunity to ride twice! 

    Also, don't forget, once you use your first 3 FastPass+ selections you're able to make more!

    Have a wonderful vacation, Jessica, and please come back and see us again if there is anything else we are able to help you with.

    Magical Wishes,
