Walt Disney World Update: Here’s What You Need To Know About The Switch/Child Swap Policy
For those not in the know, Rider Switch (which is sometimes referred to as ‘Child Swap) allows people with small children to take turns riding bigger rides while another person waits with the child. The system allowed families with smaller children or other guests unable to ride attractions with height restrictions to split up so that one adult can bring the older child on the ride while the other hangs back with smaller kiddos, then adults can swap and the big kid gets to ride twice.
The company now says:
Once at the attraction, approach the greeting Cast Member with your entire party. At least one adult member of your party and the Guests who are not riding will be issued a Ride Switch entitlement by the Cast Member and asked to wait in a designated area (usually outside the attraction). This group is Party 2.
The other party members (Party 1) ride the attraction.
After Riding the attraction, Party 1 locates Party 2. Then, Party 1 takes over supervision of the non-riding child or Guests.
Party 2 enters and boards the attraction without having to wait in the regular line a second time. The Rider Switch entitlement must be validated by a Cast Member at this time.
