    Mom, Dad, 9 yr old child and infant are going to Disneyworld. If Dad and 9yr old make a fast pass reservation for space mountain, but mom doesn't, can mom ride space mountain using the rider switch without having to wait in the regular line?

    Hi, there!

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

     Your family is going to have the most magical vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. My family will be traveling with an infant soon too, and there certainly are a few extra things you have to consider when visiting with a baby, aren't there? Thankfully, Disney makes traveling with a little one easy. Disney's Rider Switch is a fantastic service for families, and it seems like you have the jist of it! In this particular example, you'll approach the greeting Cast Member standing at the entrance of Space Mountain and request to use Rider Switch. Make sure your entire family is present when you make the request. Mom will be issued a Rider Switch entitlement on her MagicBand and then asked to wait with the infant while Dad and the 9-year old ride the attraction. If Dad and the 9-year old have a FastPass+ for Space Mountain, they may enter the FastPass+ line. Once they exit the attraction, Mom can enter the FastPass+ line with her Rider Switch entitlement, and she can take up to two Guests, which means that lucky 9-year old can blast off into outer space a second time!

     Did you know there's a conveniently located Baby Care Center in each of the four theme parks? Each Baby Care Center features a private nursing room, changing room, kitchen, living-room area, feeding area, and onsite shop with baby care essentials for purchase. It's the perfect place to whisk your little one away for some peace and quiet amid an adventure-filled day in the theme parks!

     George, please visit us again with any new questions you may have. We'd love to helpful you plan a magical visit for your family!
