    we Will be wanting to use the parent swap while In Disney, just one question once group 1 have been on the ride and retuned to group 2 and taken over to look after the baby, when can group 2 go back on the ride, I know they get given fast passes. Thanks

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Louise!

    Rider Switch is such a super convenient service! To use it, the entire family will need to be present at the attraction. Rider Switch entitlements can easily be added to Guests' My Disney Experience accounts. Those riding in the second rider party, will have their MagicBands – or cards – scanned to add the Rider Switch passes to their accounts. However, they can only have one Rider Switch entitlement stored in their My Disney Experience accounts at a time. That Rider Switch pass must be used before they can receive another.

    The Rider Switch entitlement return time will reflect the attraction's current wait time minus 10 minutes, and there will be a one-hour-window of use. For instance, if you arrive at 2:00 p.m. and the current wait time is 55 minutes, then the Rider Switch pass will show that the second rider party can return to experience the attraction between 2:45 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. For easy reference, Rider Switch entitlements will show up in the FastPass+ section of My Disney Experience accounts. The Rider Switch riders can enter the attraction via the FastPass+ queue.

    Disney Mom Tip: Please take a look at this excellent page about Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones; and be sure to check out the useful packing tips videos found in this great Disney Parks Blog entry.
