    Hello, We are visiting Disney World in May and understand its almost impossible to get a FP+ for Avatar flight of passage. We have 4 littles who cannot ride - will we need to ALL stand in line to get a rider switch? Thanks!

    Hi Shelby, 

    While I’ll admit that it can be difficult to include Avatar Flight of Passage among your FastPass+ selections during your May visit to Walt Disney World Resort, it’s by no means impossible! My first tip would be, if you’re staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel and your FastPass+ selection window opens 60 days before your trip, check near the end of your trip for the best chance at finding availability for this extremely popular ride. 

    If you don’t manage to find any availability, don’t lose hope! I’ve found that FastPass+ selections can open up for all of the most popular rides, including this one, either the day before or the day of your visit. In fact, during my last trip to Walt Disney World Resort with my family, when refreshing My Disney Experience earlier that morning, I was able to find FastPass+ selections for a party of 4 for later that day. Persistence and patience are key! 

    As for Rider Switch, yes it is available at this attraction. You don’t all need to stand in line to use it, but the Cast Member at the front will want to see the children before they give you a lanyard and card that you’ll then exchange before experiencing the attraction for the actual Rider Switch pass. What worked for us: we went to the front of the attraction with our little guy, told the Cast Member what we wanted to do, and he gave the person who was going to be waiting in the standby line the card and lanyard right off the bat and then they went to the back of the line. The system may be different while you’re visiting, so please ask the Cast Member at the front of line for instructions when you arrive. 

    Have a Magical Day,
