    I am traveling with my son (15) and my two daughters (6, 3).I would like to utilize rider swap for my 6 year old. However, I didn't know if this would be allowed since my son is not an adult.He has watched his sisters many times, but I wanted to check.

    Hi Jennifer,
    So glad you stopped by to join us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    I'm really excited to hear about your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation with your family.  I'm sure you're counting down the days until you have some fun with Mickey Mouse!

    I'm really happy to tell you that the Park Rules and Regulations at the Walt Disney World theme parks state that children under age 7 must be accompanied by a person age 14 years or older, so you are absolutely allowed to have your son mind either one of his sisters when using the Rider Switch Service.  When you use this service, please ensure that your entire party approaches the Cast Member minding the queue; they will not allow you to use Rider Switch unless your entire party is present.

    Jennifer, I just wanted to take a quick second since I've got you here to draw your attention to the Planning Guide for Preschoolers and Little Ones.  So many things change between visits these days! This guide is great and gives you an idea of what's available for the little ones.

    I hope your upcoming vacation is filled with many happy memories!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
