  • Child Swap: No
  • Other Issues: Although there is no child swap, one parent may want to wait in line without the children, then the family can join again together as that parent nears the beginning of the line. This line can get long. Characters may need to go take a break while you’re in line, which may mean that different characters are there when you actually arrive at the front of the line.
