    Party of 10 (6 adults 4 children). Some rides, all the adults can ride but not kids. If 4 adults go on a ride, leaving 2 other adults to watch the children, can the other 2 adults utilize rider switch? Does everyone in the party need a fast pass for ride?

    Hi there, Jenna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 

    I'm so glad to hEAR you're planning a trip to Walt Disney World Resort with a fun-loving group! You and your party sound like you're going to have the best vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Having small children of my own who don't always want to go on attractions, Disney's Rider Switch Service has been a game-changer for our vacations at Walt Disney World Resort. It saves time and allows my husband and I to enjoy our favorite rides, too! Disney's Rider Switch Service works seamlessly along with your MagicBand, Theme Park ticket, and My Disney Experience!

    To use Disney's Rider Switch Service, you can check here to see if the attraction you would like to ride offers the service, or ask a Cast Member at the attraction. Your entire party will need to approach the Cast Member who is greeting at the queue to request Disney's Rider Switch Service. The first group of riders will go through the line while the second group of riders will wait with the children. The second group of riders will be given a Rider Switch entitlement to bypass the Standby line and gain entrance in the FastPass+ line. The number of Guests in Party 2 can be up to three. Meaning, three Guests are allowed per Rider Switch Pass. The people riding in the first group would need FastPass+ selections if they would like to go through the FastPass+ line. The second group of up to three Guests do not because the Rider Switch Service will grant them access to the FastPass+ queue.

    With so many wonderful attractions in every Theme Park, you're sure to find something that everyone will enjoy!

    Jenna, I hope you and your party have the most magical vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
