    Traveling with a 5 yo and an infant. Can my husband and i kid swap and take our daughter on rides with each of us if we have fast passes. How does that work? Thanks

    Hi, there!

     Amanda, you're going to love visiting the Walt Disney World Resort this Spring. Magic will be blooming all around you! 

     My family will be traveling with an infant this summer, and we're so glad we can use Disney's Rider Switch Service so that no one has to miss out on the fun while waiting with the baby. Pairing it with FastPass+ is my absolute favorite way to maximize precious time in the theme parks! I'm happy to explain how it works. As a family, approach the greeting Cast Member standing at the entrance of an eligible attraction and request to use Rider Switch. Let's say your husband will ride with your daughter first while you wait with your infant. They'll be given a Rider Switch pass to enter the Standby line. Once they ride and exit the attraction, they'll give you the Rider Switch pass. You can use the Rider Switch pass to enter the FastPass+ line with little to no wait, while your husband takes a turn waiting with the baby! The best part? Your daughter can experience the attraction twice by riding with you as your Guest on the Rider Switch pass - lucky girl! Here's the important part - to avoid the Standby line altogether, make sure the first two riders (your husband and daughter) have a FastPass+ for the attraction. Then, when they're given the Rider Switch pass, they can enter the FastPass+ line instead of the Standby line! There's no need to make a FastPass+ selection for yourself since the second rider may enter the FastPass+ line with the Rider Switch pass for their turn. 

     Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amanda. Please visit us again soon with any new questions you may have!
