    How does patent shop work with fast pass How many fast pass do I book when doing kids swop

    Hi, there!

     Sarah, I'm so excited to hear you'll be kicking off the holiday season at the Walt Disney World Resort. How very merry!

     You must be visiting with little ones in tow. The Walt Disney World Resort loves hosting little Guests, and the Rider Switch service is just one of the ways they make traveling with small children super easy for parents. Using Rider Switch and FastPass+ together is a great way to maximize your precious time in the theme parks! In my experience, only the Guests who are riding the attraction first need a FastPass+ to enter the FastPass+ line. The adult waiting with the non-rider can enter the FastPass+ line with their Rider Switch entitlement. To use these two services together, make sure the people in your party who will be riding first have a scheduled FastPass+ for the Rider Switch eligible attraction. During the FastPass+ window, arrive together to the attraction, find the Cast Member standing at the entrance, and request to use the Rider Switch service. The waiting adult and up to two additional Guests will receive a Rider Switch entitlement on their MagicBands or cards. (The two additional Guests can be members of the first group to ride who have FastPass+ for the attraction, which means they can ride a second time with the Rider Switch entitlement.) The waiting adult will wait with the non-rider while the first group to ride enters the FastPass+ line. When they have exited the attraction, the waiting adult and two additional Guests can enter the FastPass+ line with their Rider Switch entitlements. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sarah. Please visit us again soon!
