View Full Version : Magic Bands and parent swap

07-12-2013, 10:03 AM
I was just wondering what's going to happen to parent swap now that magic bands are being rolled out. What we used to do (by trying the beat the system a bit), would be to get a fast pass for say, Ben and me, then we would go up to the queue and get a parent swap. Ben and I would ride with the fast passes, and then Ben would go on again with Anthony. Sometimes we'd leave the parent swap pass till later in the day as well. That would leave Anthony with a 'spare' fastpass to use.

Does anyone know if parent swap is going to stay or might it be going away? When we next visit, Ava won't be big enough for some rides still, so both parents will want to ride. Will we be able to get a parent swap so Ben can ride with both of us (one at a time), or not?

I've heard this asked on a couple of podcasts now, but nobody seems to know the answer. Maybe it's too early to tell....

I haven't heard anything, but I can't see that they will stop the parent swap system they have now. It would cause them to have too much bad press.
