Questions About DAS and Rider Switch

We are going with extended family in a couple of months. I’m very familiar with planning for groups of 6 or less. This will be our first time going with a group of 9. We have a group of 6 adults and 3 boys (ages 5, 3, and 1). I will have a DAS pass. I have only ever used it with myself, husband and 3 year old. As I am in charge of planning for our entire group, I have so many questions.

  1. I understand that the DAS pass is only for the passholder and 5 guests. Do I have to decide those 5 when I do the video chat for DAS Advanced? Do those 5 guests have to be the same everyday of our trip? Same 5 for every ride? Has anyone ever gone with a group of larger than 6 and have any tips on how you balanced DAS and the whole group?

  2. Are we able to use rider switch with DAS? If so, how does that work? Does the DAS holder have to ride twice?

I’d appreciate any recent experiences with DAS with a group larger than 6, or using Rider Switch with DAS.

Thank you!
