    My children(14,10,4) and I are traveling w/o husband, can I use rider switch? Can I go w/ the 2 oldest to the ride w/ the 4yr, get a rider switch I can use w/ 10yr old while the older girl is w/ the 4 yr or does there have to be 2 adults to do rider switch

    Hi Paulette! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You and your children must be SO excited to visit the Walt Disney World Resort next week! I know you are going to have a wonderful time.

    The rules for Guests that can ride an attraction without an adult states that the Guest must be 14-years-old or older. For Guests younger than 14, they must be accompanied by someone 14-years-old or older. Since your oldest is 14-years-old, you should be able to use the Rider Switch Service by having the 14-year-old and the 10-year-old ride the attraction first, while you wait with your youngest. When the two older children have completed the attraction, they will have the Rider Switch pass and you can then ride with the 10-year-old while your oldest and your youngest hang out together (as long as you are comfortable with this scenario, of course!).

    Any children not meeting the height requirement will not be allowed in the queue, so simply have your whole party approach the entrance to the attraction, explain to the Cast Members that you would like to utilize the Rider Switch Service and they will give the Rider Switch card (which will be redeemed for the paper pass with a Cast Member in the attraction) to your oldest child while you go to wait with your youngest.

    I hope this helps with planning your days at the Walt Disney World Resort. Please visit us again with any other questions you may have!
