    Rider swap - we have 2 children who will be tall enough for some of the tamer rollar coasters (Seven Dwarfs, Big Thunder) and 2 who will not. My husband cannot ride any rollar coasters (spinal cord injury). Are there any options for us (me+2kids) to ride?

    Hi Erin,
    I bet your entire family is excited for your upcoming trip to the Walt Disney World Resort! Yes, the Rider Switch Service is an excellent way for you to ensure that everyone in your family can enjoy the thrill rides within all of the parks. The Cast Member attending the entrance to the line can give you additional information about the size of the seats (for instance, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has a large bench seat that can accommodate an adult and two smaller children) and they will be the one to provide the Rider Switch pass for you. However, you must ensure that your entire party goes to the Cast Member to obtain the pass (most importantly the ones doing the switching and those staying behind in the immediate area with your children that do not meet the height restrictions). No matter which line you wait in for your initial ride (Standby or FastPass+), your Rider Switch pass will allow you to wait in the FastPass+ line for your follow-up ride so it will go quickly for those waiting.

    I hope this helps! Please come back and see us if you have any additional questions!

    Best Wishes, 
    Amy B.
