    I've visited DisneyWorld many times during my life , both before and after my kids came along. However, our next trip will be taking place when I will be about six months pregnant. Any recommendations for someone who has to sit out the action this time?

    Hi, Kelly!   Congratulations on your upcoming addition to your family!   I traveled to Disney when I was 6 months pregnant.   It was actually quite nice!   My husband took our daughter on the rides that I could not do, and I enjoyed the easy attractions with her, such as The Enchanted Tiki Room, Spaceship Earth, Great Movie Ride, and more.   While my husband went on the rides with my daughter, I used this time to fulfill all my pregnancy cravings around the parks!   Mickey Ice Cream Bars, popcorn, an occasional healthy piece of fruit, or whatever I needed!

    Make sure to check with your physician about flying or traveling, and keep yourself hydrated by drinking plenty of water.   I would get hot easily, so I always found shady spots to wait for my family.  Take time to enjoy this time people watching and soaking in your surroundings.   There is so much magic we all miss by hurrying around the parks, this will be your chance to appreciate all the little details!

    Best of luck to your "growing" family!
