    I have read conflicting information. I have a 3 yo who cannot ride Flight of Passage. We want to use Rider Swap so my husband and daughter can ride (using a Fast Pass) then I can ride using Rider Swap. Do I need to also have a Fast Pass?

    Hello, Kim! I'm sure you must be excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort!  It will be here before you know it!

    I'm so glad you asked this question, Kim, as there is so much conflicting information out there regarding the Rider Switch system.  I have been in this same scenario myself because my youngest son gets motion sick easily. Even though he meets the height requirement, he chooses to sit out while we take turns riding Avatar Flight of Passage with our other two boys using Rider Switch (which is "THE BEST RIDE EVER!" in my husband's opinion).  To answer your question, all members of your travel party who wish to ride Avatar Flight of Passage must have a FastPass+ selection for the attraction.  In fact, many Cast Members are now starting to scan MagicBands to check before they issue the Rider Switch entitlements.  Now that Rider Switch is digital, the entitlements will show up in your  My Disney Experience Account, and you'll be issued a return window for up to three Guests in your party.  

    If you work up an appetite after your exhilarating Banshee flight, head over to Satu'li Canteen where they have delicious beef, chicken, and tofu bowls.  If this is what the Na'vi eat on Pandora, they really know how to cook! Moms Panel tip: try Mobile Ordering to avoid standing in line.  It is indeed a time and a sanity saver!

    Have a magical trip, Kim!
