    Has anyone gone in October like the last week into the first week of Nov and being 20 weeks pregnant? How was the weather ? Hot? Humid?

    Hi Katie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am a labor and delivery nurse and traveled to the Walt Disney World Resort at both 9 weeks and 27 weeks of pregnancy. You are a smart mama to be planning ahead!

    Usually, the weather at the end of October into the first week of November the temperatures are starting to fall into a more comfortable range. By standards of those of us who live up north, however, it is still pretty hot! It can be in the 80’s during the day and still be quite humid. It can also drop down a bit at night and you may want a light sweater or jacket if the weather turns cool.

    In terms of your pregnancy, I have a few helpful hints for you:
    * Be sure your doctor or midwife is aware of and approves your travel.
    * Request a copy of your prenatal records to bring with you.
    * Check with your health care practitioner on any restrictions for attractions, but as a rule of thumb, I avoided any ride with a height requirement. If I couldn’t take an infant on, I did not go on myself.
    * Be sure to drink your water, then have another drink, and then a little bit more!
    * Bring a refillable bottle with you, and ask for a free cup of ice water at any quick-service dining location to refill your bottle as you go!
    * Use the Baby Care Centers! Take a break from the heat to sit down in the air conditioning for a little bit while your party hits the roller coasters.
    * Consider returning to your resort for a nap or swim in the afternoons. Escape the heat, get off your feet and cool down.
    * Pack comfortable shoes, with room in case your feet swell a bit. I recommend two different pairs and alternate them each day.
    * Take a stretch break every so often if you have a long car or plane ride, to keep the blood moving in your legs.
    * Ask your health care practitioner if they recommend using support hose while traveling.

    Take it easy, don’t be afraid to slow down if you need to, but most of all, have a truly magical and enjoyable visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! Take a few fun PhotoPass photos with your tummy, so you can share with your little one their “first” visit to Walt Disney World!
