    Hello, I am coming to Disney World pregnant and was thinking about bringing a folding chair, it is basically like a tripod, is that allowed?

    Hi Emilie!

    Let me begin by congratulating you! I'm so excited to see a new Disney Prince or Princess will soon be joining you! 

    Based on the Walt Disney World Resort Property Rules, your tripod folding chair is prohibited. However, don't let that detract from the magic. Several years ago, my family and I visited Walt Disney World Resort during the same time frame you are planning to visit. I was pregnant and I have some tips to help make your vacation more manageable.

    To begin, remember that this trip is actually your little one's first trip to Walt Disney World Resort. Take oodles of photos of yourself! 

    Regardless of whether this is your 1st or 50th trip to Walt Disney World Resort, your pace may be different than what you have experienced in the past. Embrace that. You may find that you notice things you never have before. It's Disney magic at its best!

    Inside attractions are your friend. When I was pregnant, I spent lots of time inside in the air-conditioning. 

    Water. Drink lots and lots of water. Because you are from Florida, I know you are acclimated to your weather. Just be conscious of your water intake. Throughout your visit, complimentary water is available at the Quick-Service dining locations. Drink, drink, drink water as much as possible.

    Be sure you have comfortable shoes. Good solid walking shoes are a must for any Guest. You might even think about packing a second pair in case your first pair gets wet.

    Have fun, rest, repeat. Enjoy every moment. I'm so excited for you! I'm sending happy thoughts and lots of pixie-dust your way as you enjoy your vacation! I know it's going to be magical!
