    Hello, We will be visiting your park this coming May. We have 3 children therefore 5,4,4. We were wondering how we can ride height restricted rides if only 2 people can sit side by side. Can we use the switch pass 2 times? Thank you!

    Bonjour Julie, 

    If I understand your question correctly, you’re wondering whether your family of 5 will be able to experience attractions together. First of all, not all attractions sit Guests “two by two” and there are several that you’ll be able to experience together, by sitting three people to a row. However, for attractions such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Magic Kingdom Park, for example, if your little ones are tall enough to ride, you’ll probably want to sit one adult with each of the younger children and then have your oldest child sit in a row in front of your party so that you can keep an eye on them. 

    As for the Rider Switch system, each Pass can only be used once and your party can only hold one at a time. This means that you and your spouse can’t hold 3 Rider Switch Passes between the two of you so that you can ride an attraction separately as a party of two with each of your children. Someone is likely going to have to ride with two children at once. That being said, some attractions may have special waiting/seating arrangements for families with 3 small children, so I’d encourage you to ask the Cast Member greeting you at the attraction’s entrance what your options may be. 

    Finally, please note that, even if they are accompanied by an adult, children who don’t meet an attraction’s height requirements won’t be allowed to ride it for safety reasons. 

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. Et n’oubliez pas que vous pouvez également nous poser des questions en français!

    Have a Magical Day,
