    Does the new digital Rider Switch avoid FP+ conflicts that someone in Group 2 might have? Also, can a Group 2 individual book a FP+ concurrently with an existing Rider Switch pass?

    Hi Kris! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    My family loves Rider Switch! With two little ones that are slowly beginning to meet different height requirements, it has been a huge time-saver for us as we have needed to take turns on our favorite "thrill" rides. On our most recent visit two weeks ago, it was the first time that my daughter (barely!) met the height requirement for Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and we were all able to ride together. She was SO excited!

    I am happy to report that the digital passes that you will obtain as part of Rider Switch do not interfere with any FastPass+ selections that are already in place OR with any new FastPass+ that you will select throughout the day. I experienced this firsthand on that trip I mentioned from two weeks ago. My daughter still cannot ride Space Mountain, so my son and I waited in the Standby line, while my husband and my son (who would be riding again with dad) got Rider Switch added to their My Disney Experience accounts for Space Mountain. The Rider Switch return start time was for the same time as our Pirates of the Caribbean FastPass+, but it didn't interfere with our current FastPass+. Since my husband and son wanted to wait to ride Space Mountain later that night, we finished up our initial three FastPass+, then added more (one at a time, subject to availability) as we continued with our day. The Rider Switch digital passes didn't cause any issues with our FastPass+!

    You will want to keep in mind that you can only have one Rider Switch at a time, though. This means that if you wish to utilize Rider Switch on another ride, you will need to use your current one first before obtaining another.

    I hope this helps with your planning, Kris! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
