    Is parent swap still available? One child is tall enough for a ride while another child is not. I assume both parents & older child should schedule FPs. Will older child will be able to jump back in FP line again with the 2nd parent even FP just use

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sherry!

    My family love to use the Rider Switch system during our vacations at Walt Disney World Resort! Our older son is tall enough to ride many of the larger attractions, while our younger is still too short. So we can use the Rider Switch system to make sure everyone can enjoy all of their "must-do" attractions and my little Mouseketeer isn't stuck just waiting. Your entire party should proceed to the entrance of the attraction queue together and notify the Cast Member that you will be using Rider Switch. The first riding party will proceed through the queue where they will be given a Rider Switch ticket. While the first parent and your taller child enjoy the ride using their FastPass+ reservation, the second parent and the smaller child can do other things at the theme park. When the second parent is ready to ride, the taller child will be able to join them for a second ride as each Rider Switch ticket allows 2 Guests on the attraction. My older son loves this feature as he gets to ride his favorites twice!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
