    Hello! I will be traveling to disneyworld in 3 weeks weeks with three adults and three kids ages 12, 5 and an infant. In order to use child swap, does everyone need a fast pass! I keep finding conflicting information online! Thanks

    Hi Christina, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Thank you for bringing your question to us! The Rider Switch service was designed so that families with non-riders can wait on the regular line once and not twice. Combining it with the FastPass+ service may not be the best choice as it already grants your group a time window to enjoy the attraction and allows you to alternate during that window of time.

    If you intend to ride an attraction using both the FastPass+ and the Rider Switch services, I'd advise you to make a reservation for all Guests who will be riding as Cast Members may verify all of your FastPass+ reservations prior to issuing your Rider Switch entitlement.

    Because of that, I'd advise you to use the Rider Switch service for the attractions for which you cannot grant FastPass+ reservations. As I'm sure it will help you plan some great itineraries, the full list of attractions that offer this service can be found here.

    Since you will be traveling with infants, this great post by the Disney Parks Blog has some great insights for enjoying the Walt Disney World Resort with the little ones. I hope you like it!

    May the magic be with you,
