Baby Switch - Service for families with children

Parents who visit Disneyland with young children or a baby can visit all the attractions in the two theme parks without queuing up twice.
This is possible thanks to the practical offer called "Baby Switch". And no, don't worry, you don't have to trade your baby in, even if the title of this service may give a little of this impression. Rather, this means that the whole family queues up, then one parent enjoys the ride, while the other parent takes care of the child and then roles are then changed. So you all have fun without doubling the waiting time.
This service is particularly useful for fast-moving attractions such as roller coasters, but can also be used if your child is afraid of certain things or simply does not enjoy a ride. You can also use this service if you have several children, maybe one is just too young or too small for a looping - no problem thanks to Baby Switch!

How it works

  • Look for an attraction that you both want to ride and queue.
  • As soon as it's your turn, one of you goes into the attraction while the other takes care of the child.
  • After your partner has finished the ride, you can switch roles and enjoy the trip.

Of course, you don't need the Baby Switch at all attractions at Disneyland, because there are plenty of attractions in both theme parks that are suitable for the whole family, from Le Carrousel de Lancelot to the meetings with the Disney characters. Not to forget the numerous shows and the areas in the parks that you can just explore.
In general, Fantasyland is the area at Disneyland that is most suitable for families with young children.

You will also find detailed descriptions of all attractions in both Disney Parks on our site, so that you can get an idea of whether you want to use the Baby Switch or not. In addition to the descriptions, we have made an assessment of whether the respective attraction is suitable for small children or not - certainly a useful clue for you.
