    Is there rider switch on Expedition Everest? My 8 year old is unsure if he wants to ride and we have a Fast Pass for it.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa!

    Conquering Expedition Everest - Legend of the Forbidden Mountain can be a little hair-raising even for the toughest of yetis and yes, Rider Switch is available for those traveling with Guests not quite big enough, able or a little unsure about riding it. You can find the full list of participating attractions in the link above.

    To help my kiddos with rides that they are a little apprehensive about we like to find "ride through" videos online. This way they know exactly what to expect. Perhaps this will help your explorer find the courage to face the Forbidden Mountain and it's inhabitants.

    Have a wonderful Disney vacation, Lisa, and please let us know if there is anything else we are able to assist you with.

    Magical Wishes,
