    when utilizing rides switch/swap how does it work when you have twins? Can both 7 year olds go with one parent and still swap out parent staying with baby? Or can one parent go with twin a and then can twin b and parent waiting with baby swap riders?

    Hey there, Melissa, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! Navigating The Walt Disney World Resort with little Mouseketeers is a fantastic feat! However, as a dad of four, I know all too well that Disney Vacations with little ones can throw you some curveballs at times. With this in mind, my number one tip for traveling families is to keep the plans flexible!

    Melissa, Disney’s Rider Switch Service is available for many attractions across the resort. And according to The Walt Disney World Website, only one Guest may join the waiting guardian when they board the attraction. With this in mind, I believe your twins will have to split between the parents to experience the attraction. However, you never know when a little pixie dust will fall on your vacation! So I recommend confirming with the Cast Member at the attraction entrance during your Theme park day. When using Rider Switch, simply approach the Cast Member at the attraction’s entrance and inform them of your need for Rider Switch. (I’d mention that you have twins that would both like to ride again with the waiting parent.) The Cast Member will scan your MagicBands — or MagicMobile Pass — and allow the first party to enter the attraction. Once they have completed their ride, the second party can enter the attraction. 

    Additionally, each Theme Park has a Baby Care Center available for Guest use. Each Baby Care Center has changing tables, quiet nursing rooms, and even bottle-warming stations. They also have diapers, onesies, and wipes available for purchase for the moments when our little ones throw us a curveball. Trust me - we’ve all been there! I find that the Baby Care Centers are the perfect place to take a bathroom break, cool off, and have a quiet place for my kiddos during long Theme Park days.

    I hope this helps, Melissa! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know
