    If my DH wants to ride a bigger thrill ride, are there any that have smaller rides nearby that I (pregnant) can enjoy w/my DS 2&3 that he won't also want to ride?

    Hi Jessica! I can definitely help you out on this one!  I'm a bit of a ride wimp, so I've spent a lot of time waiting while my husband and son ride the coasters and other thrill rides. 

    In Animal Kingdom, while your husband rides Expedition Everest, take your sons to the Flights of Wonder show. Birds swoop overhead in this shady outdoor show that's quite entertaining and educational and is not far from Everest. While your husband rides Dinosaur, take your sons on the TriceraTop Spin. 

    At Hollywood Studios, the nearest attraction to the Tower of Terror and the Rock'n'Roller coaster is the Beauty and the Beast show. You'll have to check the Times Guide for show times since it doesn't run continuously. If it's not playing at that time, Disney Junior -- Live on Stage is a short walk away. 

    At the Magic Kingdom, while your husband rides Space Mountain, take your sons on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover. This slow moving tram is a restful spot to relax and it even winds through Space Mountain. Also, nearby is the Carousel of Progress, an audio-animatronics show in a revolving air-conditioned theater. While your husband rides Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain, you can take the boys on the Walt Disney Railroad -- it circles the park and you can stay onboard until it returns to Frontierland. There's also a small shaded playground near the bathrooms between Splash Mountain and Big Thunder Mountain that is perfect for your sons.

    Finally in Epcot, there's a spurting fountain near the entrance to Test Track and not far from Mission Space, that my kids used to love playing in when they were toddlers. Bring a bathing suit or a change of clothes and let them dash in and out of the water while you sit and rest. Also, Ellen's Energy Adventure and Innoventions are nearby attractions.

    Come visit me again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! I'm happy to help!
