    Can you please explain how the rider switch option works for the parks? Our older 2 children will be up for Mt Everest +Tower of Terror, while these experiences may be too much for my just newly turned 5 y/o. How can my husband and I take turns and enjoy?

    Hi Tracey!

    You and your husband will certainly be able to use Rider Switch on your trip...I loved it when my kids were little.

    It's really easy...when you arrive at your attraction ask a Cast Member about the Rider Switch option. Basically, one adult will stay with the child at a designated wait area while the rest of your party enjoys the ride.  When the other adult returns, they stay with the child who is not riding and gives the other person a chance to enjoy the attraction without having to wait in the line again.

    For additional information please check out  Please look under the Help tab at the top of the page, then click on Guest Services.  Once there just scroll down until you see Rider Switch. This page includes more detail as well as a list of attractions that offer this service.

    I hope you have a wonderful time making magical memories at Walt Disney World!
