    Is Rider Switch available for Rise of the Resistance? Reading past results it appears it was available, but it's not listed on the list of Rider Switch rides. Was it removed? Or is this feature still available?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome back to planDisney, J. We have just loved helping you plan your Disney vacation! It looks like you're on your way to the Walt Disney World Resort right now. That's super exciting! 

     As a mom of three, I love Disney's Rider Switch. This family-friendly service makes traveling with our preschooler in tow easy peasy! With Rider Switch, we can enjoy thrill attractions with our big kids without having to experience two wait times. 

     I'm pleased to tell you that Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance does offer Disney's Rider Switch Service. Isn't that great? To use Rider Switch, first approach the greeting Cast Member at the entrance and request to use the service. Whoever is waiting with the non-rider will be issued a Rider Switch entitlement. This person is the "Waiting Adult." One additional Guest may be issued a Rider Switch entitlement too so that the Waiting Adult will have someone to ride with. The first party will experience the attraction while the Waiting Adult waits with the non-rider. When the first party exits the attraction they'll wait with the non-rider while the Waiting Adult and the additional Guest use their Rider Switch entitlements to enter the Lightning Lane.

     Speaking of Lightning Lanes, be sure to try out the new Disney Genie+ Service. With the purchase of Genie+, you can take your visit to the next level! Disney Genie+ offers Lightning Lane access at over 40 attractions and entertainment options throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, which means you'll spend less time waiting in line. With three kids in tow, I say the less time we wait in line, the better

     I hope this was helpful, J. I'm wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation this week!
