    I searched rider swap-most dated 2011-not sure if things have changed since then. Next trip 2 , 9 & 11 yr olds-I know FP & DAS have changed recently-So wanted to verify swap.

    Hello Denise!
    The Rider Switch Service makes it possible for different members of your party to enjoy attractions that other members of your party may be too short or young to enjoy. With Rider Switch, one adult can wait with the non-rider (or riders) while the rest of the party enjoys the attraction. When the other adult returns, they can supervise the non-riding Guests, and the waiting adult can board the attraction without having to wait in the regular line again! Not all attractions offer Rider Switch, but for those that do the process is fairly simple. 

    You simply approach the Cast Member at the attraction with your entire party and let them know you need to use the Rider Switch option. The first group will enter the line for the attraction while the adult that will be waiting with the non-riders will be given the Rider Switch pass. After the first group returns, the person with the pass along with one other person will be able to access the attraction via the FastPass+ return line.

    In my experience this process has not changed with the implementation of the new FastPass+ system or the new Disability Assistance Service.  I hope this helps with your planning.

    See ya real soon!
