    Hi, we are thinking about visiting 08/15-08/20 to take advantage of the free dining. I will be 35 wks pregnant. Has anyone else visited being this far along? I know it's crazy but I want to share the disney magic just one more time with my three year old.

    Hi there Natalie,

    I waddled through "the World" at around 32 weeks with my second son.  I'll be totally honest, I'm not sure that I would do it again.  I was exhausted by the end of our trip because of the walking and heat (we went in June). I did travel pregnant earlier on (around 18-20 weeks) and was absolutely fine.  I strongly recommend checking with your doctor before finalizing your plans.  August in Central Florida can be downright sweltering, and if you're anything like me, the heat will feel even more intense when you're that far along.  If you get the all clear, I would recommend pacing yourself, and staying very well hydrated.  You might also consider renting a wheelchair to help minimize your walking.  Wheelchairs are available at all of the theme parks and at the resorts as well.  Obviously, every pregnancy is different, and you and your doctor know your situation best.  Whether you get to travel now or when your newest addition makes his/her debut, have a wonderful time!
