Like i mentioned below, we are considering going to WDW in October and one of my children will only be 27 months old....so I think this "baby swap" might be something we'd need to do?? Thanks for any info.

Your 2 yo will be able to go on just about everything. The only thing I know they wouldn't be able to ride are the mountains (space, splash & big thunder) Dinosaur, Kali, Test Track, Rock n Roller Coaster & Tower of Terror.

Here are all the height restrictions for all the rides.

I haven't used baby swap, but I know that it's slightly different for each ride. Some have you get a special ticket outside and some have your whole party go through the line then one adult and the small child wait somewhere while the older child and other adult get on, then when they return the adults switch places and the older child rides again.

Here's what I found on wdwig about it

What if I want to ride an attraction that my child is too small to ride?

Try the baby-swap. The baby swap is designed to allow both parents to experience an attraction that your little one may be two small to ride and not have to wait in line twice to do so.

It works like this. At the entrance to the attraction, you mention to the cast member that you would like to do a baby swap. They will instruct you on how to proceed on that particular attraction. You will all go into the attraction line and one parent will ride the attraction while the other stays with the child. When the first adult is finished, they will take the child and the second adult will then ride. This is especially fun for an older brother or sister who is large enough to ride the attraction. Many times the cast members will allow the child to ride with both adults which gives the child the chance to experience the attraction twice without having to wait in line.

This procedure is changing for many of the rides that are now offering FastPass so be sure to ask the CM at the entrance of the attraction which procedure you are to follow.
