    What is parent swap. And does it work for a party of 3?. ..we have 3YO and 7YO my husband and I and would like to get on the rides with my daughter also but I need to stay with my 3YO while she gets on with Dad...will parent swap work?

    Hi Leticia!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. The Rider Switch Service should work perfectly for you and your husband to both be able to experience attractions with your 7 year old!

    This full list of attractions allows Guests to utilize the Rider Switch Service, but don't worry about memorizing it, you can always just ask the Cast Member at the entrance of the attraction! If Rider Switch Service is available, you'll want to approach the attraction entry with your entire party. Either yourself or your husband plus your 3 year old will be given a Ride Switch Pass and asked to wait in a designated area. Let's say you ride first with your daughter and your husband waits with your toddler and the Ride Switch Pass. Once you and your daughter get off, your husband and daughter can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular queue again by presenting the Rider Switch Pass to a Cast Member, while you wait with your little one.

    I'm confident the Rider Switch Service will work great for your family to fully maximize your time at Disneyland Resort! Please let us know if we can help in any other way.
