    Regarding the 3 advance fastpasses, what do you do about a child that is not tall enough for a ride that the rest of the family has a fastpass for? If I fastpass a character meet for her, would I also need a fastpass for the character meet to accompany her

    Hi, Claire! 

    FastPass+ makes it easy for the whole family to experience their must-do attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. Prior to your Walt Disney World vacation, you can reserve three FastPass+ selections per guest for each day you are visiting a theme park.  This can be done 60 days prior to your arrival if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or 30 days prior to your arrival if you are staying elsewhere.

    If the rest of your family would like to experience an attraction that your littlest Mouseketeer is not tall enough for, you can utilize the Rider Switch service.  If you do not have a FastPass+ for an attraction, one adult can wait with the non-riding child while the other members of your party wait in the standby queue.  After they have ridden, the waiting adult may board using the FastPass+ queue, avoiding waiting standby twice.  If you wish to use Rider Switch along with FastPass+, be sure to make a FastPass+ for each member of your party who will be riding. 

    If your little one would like to use FastPass+ for a character experience, anyone going through the FastPass+ queue with her would also need a valid FastPass+.  The good news is that once your party has used the three FastPass+ selections they made in advance, you can continue to make additional FastPass+ selections, one at a time, based on availability throughout the rest of your day.  This can be done using your My Disney Experience mobile app or at any of the FastPass+ kiosks located throughout the theme parks.

    Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World vacation!
