    Trying to find out more about the new digital rider switch. In order to prepare myself: what if the return time coincides with the parade or lunch reservation? Will I have to pick one over the other or is it possible to request a different retun time?

    Herzlich wilkommen, Renate!

    We are so thrilled to answer your very first question on the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your Walt Disney Resort vacation is only a couple of months away!

    When you request to use Rider Switch you have one hour to redeem your pass once the return window starts. Return time is assigned to your MagicBand or card based on current standby line wait time, so if you have a dining reservation or other plans that may coincide with your return window, I recommend talking to the Cast Members at the entrance of the attraction where you are using Rider Switch to check if another return time is available at the time passes are assigned. Please keep in mind that you must use a pass that has been assigned to you before requesting a new one. Passes can be viewed on the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Renate! Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Best magical wishes,
