    8 of us want to get a FP for the same ride but we cant all go on together cos the child doesn't want to. If I get a FP for us in the same time slot, do we have to go on the ride at the same time or can we split the group within our time slot?

    Hi, Kerry!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I’m happy to say that your plan is spot on! You can definitely split the group during your FastPass+ time slot to make sure that everybody gets to ride. It's super simple to do it to take turns in the care of a child or adult that requires company.

    I also have great news about the rides that you’re not able to book FastPass+ for. The Rider Switch service was designed for Guests like you. This complimentary service was created so that families can take turns to enjoy an attraction and wait on the regular line only once and not twice.

    The list of attractions where it’s available is published online so that you can plan your daily itineraries. You can then consider your FastPass+ reservations and the attractions where you intend to use Rider Switch to make the perfect plan!

    To use Rider Switch, alert the Cast Member at the entrance of the attraction that your family would like to take advantage of it. Then, your group of 8 will be divided into two groups, and only the first will have to wait on the regular queue to ride the attraction. Once the first group is exiting, the second group will be allowed into the FastPass+ line to enjoy the attraction.

    I hope you and your group have the most memorable visit this September, Kerry. If it isn't already on your plans, make sure to discover more about Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. It's my favorite seasonal event at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Between the opportunity to wear costumes, the live entertainment, a new fireworks spectacular, trick-or-treating activities, and other surprises, your crowd will be surely in for a fangtastic night.

    I can even think of a costume idea where seven people could dress as famous dwarves, and the remaining member could dress as a memorable (and beloved) princess!

    If more questions pop up as you're adjusting the final details of your trip, please, come back. We will be here waiting for your next questions!

    May the magic be with you,
