    Hello! In order to use the Rider Switch option do you have to have a fast pass for that ride or can group one wait in the standby line?

    Hi Anna,

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about Rider Switch. This is such a wonderful service for families visiting with Mouseketeers who aren't quite ready for some of the more thrilling attractions. Thanks to Rider Switch, everyone who does want to experience an attraction is able to without needing to take the time for your party to wait in the standby line twice!

    I'm happy to let you know that yes, you will absolutely be able to use the Rider Switch service even if you aren't using the FastPass+ service for the attraction. You and your entire party will simply want to talk with the Cast Member at the attraction's entrance before anyone hops in line, and he or she would be happy to set everything up for you. The Rider Switch service is all managed digitally now, so it's super convenient and easy peasy to use. Once you're all set up, the majority of your party may simply enter the standby line while an adult waits outside the line with any non-riders. Once the first group is done, you'll simply switch and the adult who waited and up to two other Guests may head to the FastPass+ queue to enjoy the attraction with very little wait. It's a GREAT time-saver!

    Please feel free to stop by again with any other questions you may have as you're planning your trip, Anna, as we're always here and happy to help. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation early next year!
