    What rides are safe for expecting mothers?

    Hiya, Korey!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you so much for sending this Disneyland Resort vacation planning question to us hEAR!

    Oh Boy! (Or Oh Girl!) How exciting that you'll soon be adding a new set of ears to your family! Congratulations on this happy time!! I'm very happy to pass on two special lists just for you, Korey. This first is a link to all of the attractions that have 'Expectant Mother Advisories', which means it's not recommended to ride these attractions two (or three, or four, or five ...) people per seat. (See what I did there? Because technically what you're riding, the baby is enjoying too, ha!) This second link is the list of the 'All Ages' attractions, which are the rides, shows, and walkthroughs that don't have an age or height requirement. One has to figure that a baby in the belly is as safe as an already-born baby on the outside, sitting in someone's lap.

    I visited Walt Disney World Resort when I was 7 months pregnant. I thought a lot about the different attractions and how they related to the other things I already did in that phase of life; for example, I chose to enjoy Soarin' because I was still flying on airplanes at that point. I know you might have a lot of questions, which will only be met with dozens of different opinions or answers, but to me, it really felt like one of those Jiminy Cricket situations where my conscience had to be my guide. (My conscience guided the attractions, my tummy took over the dining options.)

    I hope that this helped to better plan your upcoming Disney day, Korey! And congratulations again on your upcoming junior Mickey or mini Minnie!
