    My husband and I are flying to Disney World in one week, and I just found out that I am 5 weeks pregnant. This is our first! I have read about the rides in the 4 main parks that are not recommended for expectant mothers, but what about the water parks?

    Hi there Lisa!

    First let me say, Congratulations! Having your first born is such a wonderful experience and you are doing a great job of checking the rides to see which ones are safe for you to ride. I would consult your physician about the water parks. The wave pools and lazy rivers should not be a problem but I would probably steer clear of the major rides like Summit Plummet. I think you are still early enough along to go on some of the more laid back tube rides but I'm not a doctor, I just stayed in a... well, you get it. Just to let you know, my wife was about four months pregnant with my son and rode Splash Mountain... My son is six now and loves to go to Walt Disney World. Not saying it was a very good idea though. Stay safe and talk to your doctors before riding anything you may feel is too much. Thanks so much for asking the Moms Panel if you have more questions, I'm always here to help! I hope you and your family have a Magical Time at the Walt Disney World Resort!
