    Hello, when making fast pass selections, do both my husband and myself have to make fast pass for a ride that we will be using rider swap that our son cannot ride?Or can just one of us use a fast pass and get rider swap without the other using a fast pass?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Brittany. I'm so glad you stopped by!

     You and your husband are going to have the best time experiencing the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort with your little one this fall. I'm super excited for you! There are lots of family-friendly attractions you can experience together, but thanks to Disney's Rider Switch System, you can also enjoy attractions that your little guy is still too little for. How great is that? In my family's experience using Rider Switch, only the people who are riding first need a FastPass+ to enter the FastPass+ line. The waiting adult and up to two Guests can enter the FastPass+ line with their Rider Switch entitlements. Let's say you're the "waiting adult." If your husband has a FastPass+ for the Rider Switch eligible attraction, he'll enter the FastPass+ line and ride first. I suggest using the FastPass+ that you didn't need for that attraction (since you can enter the FastPass+ line with your Rider Switch entitlement) on an attraction your son can enjoy with you while you're both waiting for your husband. That way, your little guy can have some fun while waiting!

     Have you booked any Character Dining Experiences during your stay? Chef Mickey's is an absolute must-do for my little ones. Character Dining Experiences are an awesome way to make sure your little guy gets a delicious kid-friendly meal AND time with his favorite Disney characters! 

     I hope this was helpful, Brittany. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
