    Hello we will be at disney may 10-15 my daughter will be 8 months pregnant at the time will she be able to ride the childrens ride with her 3 year old son does disney allow that ? ThankYou

    Most of the rides at WDW are perfectly fine for pregnant women. However, there are some rides at WDW that do have posted warnings for pregnant women, as well as for guests with heart conditions, back problems and other medical issues. These warnings are noted on signage at the rides as well as on the Walt Disney World website. For example, if you look at the bottom of the Space Mountain page HERE, you will see under "Guest policies":
    • For safety, you should be in good health and free from high blood pressure, heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness or other conditions that could be aggravated by this adventure.
    • Guests must transfer from motorized scooter or ECV to an available wheelchair, then from the wheelchair to the attraction/ride vehicle.
    • Expectant mothers should not ride.
    All that being said, there is PLENTY for an expectant mom to do at WDW. I visited Disney when I had a three-year-old and was five months pregnant with twins (I was HUGE). On that trip, I was able to enjoy: Small World, Jungle Cruise, Dumbo, Peter Pan, Toontown, Country Bear Jamboree, character greetings, the Tiki room, meals, parades, fireworks, and MUCH more. I have more tips for pregnant travel HERE.

    Another resource you should look for is a book called PassPorter's Open Mouse for Walt Disney World. This is the definitive guide for anyone visiting WDW with any sort of physical issue, including pregnancy. The potential challenges with each attraction are described in great detail. You can get this book at Amazon.com or from major booksellers.
