    How does the parent hop in a line work and with fast pass. For example we have a 3 year old that can’t go onspace mountain but our 6 year old can. Would everyone that’s riding need to use a fast pass including the 3 year old or just the ones riding?

    Hi, Brittany! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for stopping by to bring us your question.

    The Rider Switch service is one my family has enjoyed often during our visits to the Walt Disney World Resort. Our kids have a wide age gap, so this service allows my entire crew to enjoy the magic they wish to enjoy as we take turns experiencing the different age appropriate attractions.

    To use Rider Switch, simply approach the entrance of the attraction you wish to use the service at, alert the Cast Member and choose the first riders. The rest of the family can then enjoy a break, snack, or different attraction while they wait. Once the first group is done, the second group can enjoy the attraction using the FastPass+ line, saving time so you don’t miss out on everything there is to enjoy at the parks.

    If you wish to combine Rider Switch and FastPass+, simply pre-book FP+ for the guests planning on enjoying the attraction first. This will allow both groups to skip the stand-by queue, making the process quicker so you can continue checking off all your must-dos from your adventure-filled day at the theme parks!

    Be sure to browse all the magical preschool-friendly attractions before you arrive so you can have fun activities planned for your youngest mouseketeer while your older kiddo enjoys the big thrills! And don’t forget to locate the baby care centers, the perfect place for a quick break where you can find all the amenities for your little one during your visit.

    I hope this helps answer your question. If you have any additional questions or want more planning tips, be sure to stop by and see us.

    Wishing you a magical day,
