    Do both parents need a FP to do rider swap? Or just the first rider?

    Hello Jamie!

    Disney's FastPass+ is super helpful to reduce wait times for your favorite attractions. Each day each person can make three FastPass+ selections in one theme park.  However, some of our smaller Mousketeers are either too short for an attraction or are not quite up to the more thrilling attractions. That is when Rider Switch is a great option. 

    If you want to use both a FastPass and the Rider Switch option all parties that would like to experience the attraction must have a FastPass. The Cast Member at the entrance to the ride will scan everyone's MagicBand or ticket to check for the FastPass. At that time they will issue the Rider Switch for the adult that will be hanging back until the rest of the party returns. That adult can then ride the attraction with up to two other members of your party. 

    I hope this helps clarify how to use both a FastPass and Rider Switch for an attraction.

    See ya real soon,
