    Question Baby Swap

    Has anyone ever used the "Baby Swap" service on rides? As I understand it it'd work like this... can someone tell me if I'm right?

    Bill = Husband
    Tim = Step-son
    Aaron = Baby

    Let's say Space Mountain is the ride... we'd wait in line and Tim and Bill would get on and ride and I'd stand off to the side with Aaron. Then rather than exiting the ride at the exit they'd stay on back to the boarding area. Bill would take Aaron and I'd get on with Tim and we'd ride. Bill would be walked over to the exit and we'd meet him there.

    Is that how it works?

    I got the answer on another forum... basically you tell the CM at the entrance that you need child swap passes and you go up the FP lane to use them. Sometimes, depending on the CMs running the ride, to keep you from having to go alone, one of the family members can ride with the odd person the second time too.

    The actual guidelines are for up to 3 people including the person holding the child swap ticket.

    I may have to borrow a baby for the next trip. That way I can ride twice! Ed can hold the baby, while I ride with Auvie, Gareth, and Kandis. Then Kandis can hold the baby while I ride with Ed, Auvie, and Gareth! Woo-hoo! What's Tanner doing next September?
    They call me "Nana"
