There is no point getting a rider switch if you have a fast pass, they are essentially the same thing. If you had a FP you dont need a RS. They were wrong.

I know it should be, and I didnt have a FP for it because I had one to take my youngest on Magic Carpets of Aladdin, but it does show that not all cast members get it right. I also know I could have challenged her, but I hate confrontation and I was reluctant to start a debate with her when she was already pretty grumpy with me

Oh, I totally understand, im same. I had this at ToT and I was like really? Whats the point in the Rider switch then? As it happens I was there with a CM friend of mine who stepped in and they apologised but its so bloody frustrating when one CM does this as it makes people concerned. But thankfully the other hundreds of CMs do know the rules. I hope the rest of your day went without a hiccup and you are having a fab time!

Thank you, yes it makes it so hard when you dont know if the rules will be applied consistently or not. I didnt risk it and booked myself FPs for FOP and Slinky (although in the case of Slinky I had thought he would ride but then decided not to), but in MK there are more choices for other rides to take a younger one on. But we are having a fab time thank you

They ask who is riding first, scan their band plus up to 2 more who are riding again and add on a special FP valid until the end of the day. At FOP and Slinky they had a separate cast member with an iPad near the entry just to do this. I have told my two older boys they are lucky they get double rides on things!
