    My question is about the Rider Swap service. In the past we have gotten fast passes to mine train lets say for myself and my wife would get a fast pass for a character experience. Do those using the rider swap pass also have to have a fast pass?

    Hi, there!

     Anthony, I'm so pleased to hear you and your family are planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Wahoo!

     Disney's Rider Switch is super helpful when traveling with little ones, isn't it? This family-friendly service was recently updated to make it even more convenient! My family used the updated service during our last visit, and found it worked much the same as it did in the past. In our recent experience, only the parent and children riding the attraction first needed a FastPass+ to enter the FastPass+ line. The "Waiting Adult" was permitted to enter the FastPass+ line with the Rider Switch entitlement that was issued at the time the service was requested. As before, the Waiting Adult could bring up to two Guests with them when returning to the attraction within the assigned return window. When my family rode Seven Dwarfs Mine Train (our favorite!), my husband and sons entered the FastPass+ line with the FastPass+ they had selected for that attraction. As the Waiting Adult, I used my FastPass+ to take my little one on Peter Pan's Flight (a classic!) while we waited for my husband and the big kids. Then, I used my Rider Switch entitlement to enter the FastPass+ line at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, and my big kids came with me as my guests!

     Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app prior to your arrival. It really is magic at your fingertips! You'll be able to view any Rider Switch entitlements on the My Disney Experience mobile app, which is super convenient. 

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