Child Swap at Universal Orlando
The Walt Disney World Resort is not the only theme park/attractions area that has a child/parent swap policy in place. While Disneys is more well known, the Universal Orlando Resort has taken many measures to ensure that their smaller guests, as well as their parents, have an enjoyable stay at both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure.
So what exactly is the child swap program? A child swap takes place on any attraction where there is a height restriction that one of the younger guests in your party does not meet. Before this program was in place, parents with small children would have to take turns waiting with their child while the other stood in line for the attraction. Now, the child swap allows one or more adults to stay behind with the child who cannot yet enjoy the attraction, and once that portion of the party has enjoyed the attraction, one of them can then stay behind with the child while the remainder of the adults goes on the ride. Now, you may be asking yourself – how does this make it any faster? The beauty of a child swap is that the second half of the party does not have to wait in line a second time – they simply proceed to the front of the line to ensure that the remainder of the party doesn’t have to wait outside for too long. And, if you have three or more in your group, that means that at least one person can go on the ride a second consecutive time!
Universal Orlando is also a little different from Disney in that they actually have waiting areas designated at all of the attractions for this child swap policy. To access these areas, simply ask the attendant at each attraction and they will guide you to the specific location for that attraction. And, much like Disney, there are no signs and no advertisements announcing this procedure. But, don’t let this discourage you from partaking in this wonderful benefit – this program was put in place so that parents and families just like you can enjoy it.
