    Say there are 2 adults and 1 toddler too small to ride either of two different rides.
    Can the adults each get a single FP+ for each of the two rides, then do the swap on each?
    In effect they could double their FP+’s from 3 to 6 a day if they did this every time. Right?

      Yes you are right. When you do the Rider Swap, they give you a paper pass that allows up to 4 adults to return through the FastPass line. The pass is usually good for a week, so you don’t even have to use it the same day.

    Thanks for the question Steve, and thank you for answering Tyler. The fam and I have been sick for a week, so I’m late replying!

    Sorry about that, and thank you both for watching!
