    Hello, Tara,

    Thank you for sending your question to planDisney. How fun that you are planning a Walt Disney World vacation this summer!  Did you know that your arrival date is perfectly timed to coincide with the start of the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival? It is such a treat to explore EPCOT while having the chance to taste your way across the theme park with so many culinary adventures to sample.  If you are curious about what may be available, you can take a peak at the Food Guide from 2022. I thought it was an incredibly yummy experience!

    When you are visiting Walt Disney World, the Rider Switch is available for parties with someone who may not want to ride an attraction or who hasn't reached the height requirement so that the others in the group can still enjoy it. Essentially, it works by first checking with a cast member at the attraction if the Rider Switch is offered. If it is, everyone who wants to ride the attraction will do so while one adult waits with the non-rider. Those waiting will be issued a Ride Switch entitlement and asked to wait in a designated area.  After riding the attraction, the waiting adult can then ride while the others who first rode stay with the non-rider.  The person who had waited with the non-rider will be able to enter the attraction without having to wait in the regular queue. Also, if the person waited alone with the non-rider, one more guest may join to ride again! 

    This is a list of attractions that currently offer the Rider Switch Service:

    Magic Kingdom Park:
    The Barnstormer
    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
