Disney World has just updated information on its policy regarding the Rider Switch/Child Swap at its theme parks.

According to new wording on the Walt Disney World website, the policy now effectively limits the amount of guests who would be able to experience the attraction after the switch has occurred.

Previously, the adult waiting with the non-riding guest could bring “up to 2 other guests back to ride the attraction”. Now, the wording says that “the number of guests who may join him or her and ride again is limited”. This is likely to prevent any gaming of the system. Previously, other guests would be able to ride a second time with the waiting adult, but it looks like Disney is trying to crack down on double-dipping.

Here’s an updated list of attractions that support Rider Switch at Walt Disney World:
