    I have a 12 year old daughter with a sensory disorder who does not want to go on many rides but she prefers to stay us as we wait in line. I am familiar with Rider Switch but is it possible for her to wait at the platform until my son and I exit the ride?

    Hello there, Dawn! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for taking the time to reach back out and allowing us to help you plan another vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

    I have a bit of an understanding of your situation from my own personal visits to Walt Disney World Resort! As someone that tends to enjoy some of the more thrilling attractions, not everyone in my party wishes to join me during the more adventurous experiences. However, my family and I enjoy spending time together while we wait in line. Generally, Guests in the party that do not intend on experiencing an attraction are allowed to exit without needing to ride. Simply let a Cast Member know that your daughter does not wish to experience the attraction and they will assist in escorting her to the exit of the attraction. The area she will be allowed to wait in will vary based on the specific attraction to make sure that all safety precautions are being followed properly. 

    If you are concerned about what this will look like on specific attractions, I would recommend asking a Cast Member at the front of an attraction where your daughter will be allowed to wait for the rest of the party. This should give you some idea of whether or not your daughter will be comfortable with waiting for you while you experience your attraction!

    Have fun continuing to plan for your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort! Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you!
