    We are traveling to Disney World in September 2021. I will have a 14 year old and a 1 year old. If I set a fast pass for all of us, Would my son be able to ride with my husband, and then ride with me? Does Disney World accommodate a thing like this?

    Hi, Corissa!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this great question!

    I'm so excited to hEAR that you're planning your little Mouseketeer's first visit to Walt Disney World Resort!  Although the baby may not remember much about this vacation, I'm sure the rest of your family will.  Be sure to purchase Memory Maker so that you can relive those magical memories for yEARs to come.

    I'm happy to tell you that when you visit the Walt Disney World theme parks, there are many attractions that your entire family will be able to enjoy together.  Simply filter the attraction list by "Any Height" to find the rides that will be practically perfect in every way for your whole family.  For those attractions that your baby will not be able to accompany you on, the Rider Switch service will definitely come in handy.

    If you would like to use the Rider Switch service to experience an attraction, simply speak to a Cast Member at that attraction's entrance.  The Cast Member will scan your MagicBand or admission card to issue you a Rider Switch entitlement.  One adult will then wait with the baby while the other members of your party wait in line for the attraction.  After they return from riding, one of the adult riders will stay with the baby, and the waiting adult may bring along up to 2 members of their party and access the attraction using the FastPass+ queue.  This eliminates the need to wait in the standby line twice.

    If your family would prefer to skip the standby queue altogether, you may use Rider Switch along with FastPass+.  However, if you plan to do this, all members of your party who will be riding should have a valid FastPass+ reservation for that attraction.

    Corissa, as you plan for your vacation, be sure to check out these Disney Parks Moms Panel tips for visiting Walt Disney World Resort with an infant.  The "Panel Extras" section of the Disney Parks Moms Panel website also has lots of information that I think you will find helpful in planning for both your baby and your teen.  If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask!  See ya real soon!
