    Are there any rides that a pregnant woman can go on?

    Congratulations Allison,

    Welcome to planDisney! I just recently returned from celebrating my babymoon at Walt Disney World Resort. Visiting the Theme Parks is definitely a whole new world when you are pregnant, but I would be happy to give you some tips and tricks that worked best for me.

    There are quite a few attractions rated as “bump-friendly” at each of the four Theme Parks. Some of my favorite options for mommies-to-be include Haunted Mansion, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railroad, Toy Story Mania, and Na'vi River Journey. If you want to ensure that an attraction is not restricted, you can check out the signage outside the attraction. If you see an Expectant Mother Advisory, it is probably best to leave it for the next trip. Even if an attraction doesn’t have a posted advisory, I still highly suggest talking to your doctor before heading on your vacation. Your doctor will be able to advise you on what is safest for you and your little one based on your medical history. Every pregnancy is as special and unique as one of Elsa’s snowflakes; Walt Disney World’s recommendations are only based on a healthy average pregnancy.

    If you can’t consult with your doctor, there is no substitute for a mother’s intuition. You are the authority on your body and are the ultimate best advocate. For example, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure does not have an Expectant Mother Advisory, but I avoid it and all rides with motion sickness advisories since I get motion sick really easily. While my significant other goes on the attraction, I stop off at L’Artisan des Glaces and get a Croque Glace. Remember, taking breaks will be the best way to maintain your stamina for a long Walt Disney World day. Your body needs a lot more breaks than your typical Disney vacation so make sure you are giving yourself space and time to rest so you can enjoy your entire vacation. My next tip is to look into purchasing Genie+ for your trip. Waiting in lines can be challenging when your growing "Baby Mine" weighs down your back. With Genie+, I could limit my wait times and save my back a lot of strain. My final tip, of course, is to stay hydrated! I purchased a refillable water bottle at the Main Street Emporium and kept it filled all day long, so when I was in line waiting for Jungle Cruise, I was always able to take a quick sip in line.

    If you have any other questions about visiting Walt Disney World Resort while expecting, please come back and see me.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
