    We are visiting WDW in one month with our 2 yr old. Should we get fast passes prior to our trip? Also, do you need to get ride switch in advance or is it just a different line?

    Hi Autumn,
    Congratulations on your upcoming Disney Parks vacation! I would recommend utilizing the Disney FastPass+ service for your visit.  Crowds can be unpredictable and this service ensures a shorter wait in the FastPass+ line for the three attractions you select.

    The Rider Switch Service is a great way to ensure you and the rest of your party can enjoy all experiences when you have a child vacationing with you.  In your case, bring your little one with you to the Cast Member assisting guests at the entrance of the attraction you wish to enjoy and ask them for a Rider Switch pass.  You are then free to enjoy the attraction after the rest of your party has finished; you will wait in the FastPass+ line for the experience.

    Best wishes to you and your family for a great vacation!
    Amy B.
