    Hi! I noticed ROTR only shows for Rider Switch on the map but isn't listed. Is it still offered? Our group has 6 adults & 1 toddler and we plan to buy Individual Lightning Lanes but I don't want anyone to ride alone. Any suggestions? Thank you!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Candace! Bright Suns! 

    As a mom of two Padawans of different heights, I have had my fair share of Rider Switch experiences. Yes, even in a galaxy far, far away. You will definitely not be disappointed with your request when visiting the Outer Rim planet of Batuu.  

    I bring great news to you, Candace! Although it may not be listed, Rider Switch is available for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. I can confirm this using it on my recent experiences and by viewing the “Find Rider Switch” map on the desktop website. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: What’s super cool about Rider Switch is that you can request it at just about any attraction at Walt Disney World Resort. The official list is for attractions that have height requirements that have a more common need for Rider Switch. 

    So, how can you use the Force—er, Rider Switch? Near the entrance of Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, ask a Cast Member with a tablet to set up Rider Switch for your party. You’ll need the MagicBands+ or tickets of the two riders who will ride on the second go (using the Lightning Lane). The first group will either go through the standby queue or the Lightning Lane (only if you’ve purchased Individual Lightning Lane for the attraction). Once they return, the second group will use the Lightning Lane (no matter what). So, no one has to be alone for long, and one lucky member could get to ride twice.

    Candace, the Resistance and the First Order await you at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. I just know that you will have the BEST time! If you have any other questions about your upcoming adventure, feel free to revisit us here at planDisney!

    Magic always,
