    Hi. Travelling with 2 adults, 3yr old and 6 month baby.and wondering how we are able to do the big rides. With the new digital system, do both adults need to have fast passes for the ride or can Adult A fast pass and use child swap for Adult B?

    Hi, Alison!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm so excited to hEAR that you will soon be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with your little ones!  As you get ready for your vacation, be sure to check out these Disney Parks Moms Panel tips for making magic with preschoolers.  I think you'll also find the Panel Extras section of our Disney Parks Moms Panel website quite useful.  There you will find lots of great information on visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with the littlest Mouseketeers.

    When visiting the Walt Disney World theme parks with young children, the Rider Switch Service really comes in handy.  If you want to experience an attraction and one or both of your children either do not meet the height requirement or simply do not want to ride, you may speak to a Cast Member at that attraction's entrance about using the Rider Switch Service. 

    The Cast Member will scan your MagicBand or admission card to issue a Rider Switch entitlement.  One adult in your party will wait with the non-riding child or children, and the other adult will wait in the standby queue to experience the attraction.  Once the first adult returns from riding, they will switch places with the waiting adult.  The adult who waited may then access the attraction using the FastPass+ queue, thus eliminating the need to wait in the standby line twice.

    If you would like to use the Rider Switch Service along with FastPass+ to avoid waiting in the standby queue altogether, you may certainly do so.  However, in that case, all riders should have a valid FastPass+ reservation for that attraction.

    If we can answer any other questions for you as you get ready for your magical vacation, please visit us again.  See ya real soon!
