    Hi! We'd like to know if when a kid (age 3) has a fastpass+ spot may an adult companion him into the attraction whitout it's own fastpass+?

    Hi there Andre! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We're so happy you're here with your question, and I'd be happy to assist you today.

    How exciting that your vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth is quickly approaching! I have a three year old daughter, and it is such a fantastic age to be visiting the Disney Parks. There is nothing quite like experiencing the magic of Walt Disney World through the eyes of your little one. My son is a few years older, but we had many wonderful Disney trips with him as a baby and toddler. He loves looking back at his first pictures with Mickey Mouse!

    Andre, when a guest of any age enters an attraction through the FastPass+ line, either as a participant or a companion to a young child, the guest must have his or her own FastPass+ reservation. This includes rides as well as character meet and greets; for example, if your three year old has a FastPass+ to Meet Mickey Mouse at Town Square Theater in the Magic Kingdom, any adult accompanying him must also have a FastPass+ reservation. 

    If you have more than one adult in your party wanting to experience attractions that your little mouseketeer is not quite ready for, you'll want to familiarize yourself with Disney's Rider Switch service. My family frequently participates in Rider Switch, as our daughter isn't as interested in or tall enough for the thrill rides that her brother enjoys. 

    I hope that answers your question, and that you have a magical vacation this spring. I see that you will be visiting us from Brazil. Did you know that some of our Disney Parks Moms Panelists answer questions in Portuguese as well? If you have friends or family members interested in vacation planning advice in Portuguese, please send them on over! My friends would love to help.

    Boa viagem!
