    Hi! I have a question regarding the Fastpass/Rider Switch feature. When using Rider Switch does everyone have to have a Fastpass or just the people in the first group?

    Hi, there!

     Alisha, you must be planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. How exciting! 

     Disney's Rider Switch is a super convenient service for groups traveling with little ones in tow. When used together with FastPass+, my family saves lots of valuable time in the theme parks! In my experience, only the first group to ride needs a FastPass+ to enter the FastPass+ line. The "Waiting Adult" can enter the FastPass+ line (with up to two additional Guests) using just the Rider Switch entitlement. Using Rider Switch is easy! As a group, approach the greeting Cast Member standing at the entrance of the eligible attraction and request to use the service. The designated Waiting Adult will be issued a Rider Switch entitlement on their MagicBand or card, as will the two additional Guests that the Waiting Adult may choose to take along. The Rider Switch entitlement can then be used within the assigned return window. 

     Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to your visit. It has tons of cool features and it's where you'll find any Rider Switch entitlements listed! 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Alisha. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
