    When using the Rider Swap, does everyone need a Fast Pass? Or would Group B still get the Rider Swap if they didn't have a Fast Pass for the ride, but Group A did?

    Hi, Kathleen! 

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! The Rider Switch service was designed so that families with non-riders can wait on the regular line once and not twice. Combining it with the FastPass+ service may not be the best choice as the FastPass+ already grants your group a time window to enjoy the attraction, and allows you to alternate during that window of time.

    If you intend to ride an attraction using both the FastPass+ and the Rider Switch services, I'd advise you to make a reservation for all Guests who will be riding. Cast Members may verify all of your FastPass+ reservations before issuing your Rider Switch entitlement.

    Because of that, I'd advise you to use the Rider Switch service for the attractions for which you cannot grant FastPass+ reservations. As I'm sure it will help you plan some great itineraries, the full list of attractions that offer this service can be found here.

    Since you will be traveling with little Mouseketeers, you may want to use the Baby Care Centers. They are equipped with nursing rooms, changing tables, feeding areas, microwaves, and small shops packed with daily essentials. I hope you like them!

    May the magic be with you,
