    Ques about rider switch, if you have 2 kids - one who meets the height and one who doesn’t, do you only need 2 FPS then for that ride (dad and big kid) then you swap with dad and ride with the big kid? OR, you still need 3 FPS total for that one ride?

    Hello Diane!

    Thanks for bringing this great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. FastPass+ is an essential part of our Walt Disney World planning. Since I have a strong aversion to lines,  it is my best friend!  Another important way to save waiting time is the Rider Switch option. If you have a youngster that is either not quite tall enough or who is just not excited about riding a more thrilling attraction, others in the party can take turns without waiting in the standby line twice. If, however, you would like to use FastPass+ for any attraction all members of the party wanting to ride are required to have a FastPass+ for that attraction. So, for the example you pose, all three people wanting to experience the attraction would need to have a FastPass+ and use it within the required window of time. 

    I hope this helps clarify this for you. If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    See ya real soon,
