    We are taking our 3 kids (3, 4 and 6) over Spring Break to Disney. I am 5 months pregnant and cannot ride some of the rides. Will the rider switch option work when my husband can't take all three on his own?

    Hi Patricia! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    First, a great big congratulations on your pregnancy! As a mom that has visited the Walt Disney World Resort a few times while pregnant, I can say with confidence that you are going to have a magical time as you make memories with your family.

    One of the best things about vacationing at "The Most Magical Place on Earth" is that there is SO much for all ages to experience. You'll find that there are only a few rides that will need to be avoided in pregnancy. For those attractions, you can use Rider Switch if needed. If your party needs to break up into smaller groups for an attraction, your husband can ride with one or two of your kiddos, then get a Rider Switch for himself and the other kid(s) to ride next. For example, if your two oldest children meet the height requirement for the attraction, your husband can ride with the 4-year-old first while your 6-year-old waits with you, and get a Rider Switch for your husband and 6-year-old to ride next while the 4-year-old waits. You will all want to approach the entrance of the attraction together to explain to the Cast Member your need for Rider Switch.

    Make sure you plan plenty of breaks during your vacation for your little ones and yourself, as well as lots of hydration stops. Both things will be super important for you this trip! The Baby Care Centers that are located in each theme park are a great place to take a break, so check them out during your visit.

    I hope you have the best vacation, Patricia! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
