    I am currently pregnant. I understand that I cannot ride most of the rides however, I wondered if I could wait in the lines with my party and then wait somewhere for them to get off the rides?

    Greetings, Kayla, and thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    First off, congratulations on your pregnancy! You’re going to love celebrating your soon-to-be Mouseketeer at the Happiest Place on Earth, and you may even find yourself coming home with an adorable Mouseketeer Ear Hat

    I’ve visited the Disneyland Resort during all three of my pregnancies, so I can relate to your question. I asked this very question to a Cast Member at Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run, since there’s an Expectant Mother’s Advisory for this attraction, meaning that pregnant women are advised not to ride. However, the Cast Member I spoke with said that you would be welcome to join the walk-through experience if you’d like to. You would simply go through the queue as you normally would, but when it comes time to join a flight crew, you’d let the Cast Member know that you wouldn’t be riding. That way, you can still stand with the rest of your flight crew until they board. Then, a Cast Member would show you the path toward the exit when that time comes, and you could wait for your party there. This process may vary for different attractions, so I recommend asking the Cast Member at the entrance of each attraction if you would have a chance to exit before boarding the ride, and they can advise you. 

    The Disneyland Resort has put together a list of attractions with an “Expectant Mothers Advisory" and there are currently 16 attractions on this list, including thrill rides such as Incredicoaster, Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, and Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! Not to worry, though, since there are still plenty of attractions, shows, and experiences for you to enjoy! Some of my favorite attractions to ride while pregnant include “it’s a small world”, Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan’s Flight, Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters, Golden Zephyr, The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, Mickey’s PhilharMagic, and Soarin’ Around the World. 

    Wishing you a magical and memorable getaway to the Disneyland Resort, and a smooth and speedy delivery ahead!
