    Hi, Kim!  This has always been the best part of the Child Swap option for our family!  The big kid gets a bonus ride! 

    It has always been our experience that if we choose to use the Child Swap option, one of us would hold on to the little one while the other rode with the bigger kid, and then the baby would be handed off while the second parent enjoyed the ride with the bigger kid!  The older kids always loved having the extra ride, and especially in our family, where there is a 10 year age difference between the oldest and the middle child, it was like a bonus treat for my oldest daughter at a time when she probably felt like the "baby" was getting all of the attention.

    I hope your family has a wonderful vacation in Walt Disney World!
