    My daughter in law will be 7 months pregnant, and well our plan is for her to not get on any rides, but we still want her to enjoy Disney as much as us. Is there any special accommodations for pregnant women? or any thing other then rides she can enjoy?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Rubyma! 

    Congratulations on your grandchild! I cannot think of a better place for a soon-to-be-mom to have fun than the Walt Disney World Resort.

    You will be surprised to know that there are only a few attractions that are not recommended for expectant mothers. I highly recommend that she go over the list to plan accordingly, and this way she will even be able to make the appropriate FastPass+ selections. Some attractions are inside theaters, and are great options to escape the summer heat. She will also be able to enjoy parades and nighttime spectaculars like Happily Ever After, IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, and others.

    I remember that during the last weeks of my pregnancy I experienced discomfort while standing or walking for long periods of time, so it is good to know that wheelchairs and Electric Conveyance Vehicles (ECVs) are available for rent at all four theme parks and Disney Springs. This is a great option in case she faces mobility issues. In addition, I highly recommend staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Not only will you stay in the middle of the magic, but you will also be able to take advantage of complimentary transportation to go back to the hotel to rest during the hottest hours of the day. Keeping hydrated and healthy is not a hard task, as she will find plenty of fresh and delicious food all around the Walt Disney World Resort. Finally, I highly recommend that she visit her doctor before traveling to see what health recommendations he or she will have for her.

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please stop by once again real soon if you have additional questions.

    Best magical wishes,
