Ive used Rider Switch this year. Ive used the 1 FP tactic in quite a few occasions. It has worked every time including 1 for Slinky Dog and 1 for FOP.
I only used this tactic as I divided my family into a 3 guests and 1 guest. I used my separate FP to get ones that I could take DS2 (22 months) on which otherwise wed miss eg. Peter Pan or the character meet. If I use my FP for Rider Switch then we dont have enough.
Also the FP they add on for Group 2 are now open ended so you can come back and ride any time that day. This is much better as otherwise it can be a long wait for little ones. To get our two groups through Soarin using the FP and Rider Switch (I went on my own first and DH, DD and DS went second) took an hour. There is a waiting area but thats a long time with a crazy toddler!

Hi ya, I helped a lot in the thread you are linked to but I can confirm that only the first riding party needs fastpasss the second does not as they use rider switch. I am 100% confident in this, Ive used it on four trips now many many times. Anything else you hear is incorrect. You set up rider switch at the attraction and they will issue you with a return time that appears on MDE. I hope that helps!

You wont. Its completely normal, and Ive only ever once had a CM tell me we need a fastpass too but their colleague told them it was incorrect and we were fine. They ask you now if the first riding party has a fastpass or not, if they do the return time for RS is slightly different. I dont know how they work it out but they tick FP on their screen for party 1 and it gives a return time. They even have little booths set up at some now like slinky dog.

Youll be fine, this may help: disneyparksmomspanel.disney... booked-373613/

Disneys moms panel are really well trained, far better than the cms that answer emails so I would pay attention to the moms panel way above the CMs. I have been through both recruitment processes and let me tell you the moms panel are an elite squad when it comes to training, they know their stuff!

Just to report that today I was told off by a cast member at Big Thunder for not having a FP myself and asking for rider switch. She did give it to me and the two older boys who were riding again, but applied the standby wait time to it. I didnt push it as my youngest is over the height limit just didnt want to ride.

It doesnt matter if the child is over the ride height limit at all, rider switch is just if someone in your party doesnt want to ride
