    With the new parent swap system, can my husband and I still use it while I am pregnant. We have a 6, 5, and 1 year old. The older 2 would like to ride coasters, which I cannot bring pregnant. Rides like SDMT and SD are only 2 seats per ride. Thanks

    Hi, Karen!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and congratulations on adding another little Mouseketeer to your family!

    The Walt Disney World Resort's Rider Switch service is meant to assist families anytime one or more members cannot experience an attraction due to height restrictions or medical issues.  Rider Switch can also be used if a member of your travel party simply does not wish to experience the attraction.  Rider Switch allows those guests who wish to ride to do so without having to wait in the standby queue twice.  If your family would like to utilize the Rider Switch service, you should speak to a Cast Member at the attraction entrance and explain your situation.  The Cast Member will be able to provide you with further instructions.  Please keep in mind that if you wish to use FastPass+ along with Rider Switch, you may do so.  However, all guests wishing to ride need to have a valid FastPass+ for that attraction.

    Although there will be some attractions that your kiddos might still be too small for and some that you should avoid during your pregnancy, there is still so much magic that your entire family will be able to experience together.  If you want to know which attractions will be appropriate for the whole family, you can filter the attractions page of the Walt Disney World website by thrill level, age interest, and height.  Under the tab labeled "Accessibility & Advisories," you can even check off the Expectant Mothers Advisory filter.  Don't forget there are also lots of wonderful entertainment offerings that will be perfect for your entire group.

    While you're doing some resEARch on the Walt Disney World website, be sure to check out all the delicious dining options as well.  You're eating for two, so I think you should treat yourself to twice as many Dole Whips and Mickey waffles!

    I hope you and your family have a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
