    My husband and I booked a disney trip for our 1st wedding anniversary in april and found out we are expecting our first child. I will be about 11 weeks when we arrive in Disney World. What should i avoid? and enjoy? Any other tips/pointers will be great

    Hi Ashley!

    Congratulations on your wonderful news!  What a great way to celebrate both your anniversary and your (almost) new baby!  I traveled to Disney world when I was expecting both of my children, and found it to be very manageable.  First, I recommend checking with your own doctor to discuss your plans, and any special restrictions/suggestions, etc. that you should be aware of.  While pregnant, I followed the "whatever a toddler can ride" I can ride philosophy in conjunction with my doctor.  This included:  It's a Small World, Aladdin's Magic Carpets, Haunted Mansion, Snow White, and Winnie the Pooh at Magic Kingdom, in addition to a whole host of attractions throughout the other parks.  I also recommend staying well-hydrated, wearing your most comfy shoes, and pacing yourself, especially when it gets warm.  I must admit, I made full use of the "eating for two" philosophy at Disney's fabulous restaurants.  My husband and I enjoyed some of our best "final" meals as a couple without kids!

    I can't imagine a more perfect place to contemplate the birth of your first child than watching the thousands of sweet faces enjoying the magic at Disney!  Have a wonderful trip!
