    I am going to WDW in April and I will be 13 weeks pregnant. Are there any rides I will be able to ride?

    Congratulations on the happy news!

    You will be able to participate in almost everything at the theme parks. There are, however, a few rides in each park that I would stay away from. These are all clearly labeled at the ride entrance with warnings for pregnant mothers and people with back and heart problems.

    Here is the list of attractions to avoid ...

    Magic Kingdom -- Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, Goofy's Barnstormer, Space Mountain

    Epcot -- Test Track, Mission Space, the Maelstrom. There is probably a warning on Soarin', but this ride is not fast or bumpy. There is probably only an issue with dizziness if you happen to be in the morning sickness zone.

    Disney Hollywood Studios -- Tower of Terror, Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, Star Tours

    Animal Kingdom --  Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, Primeaval Whirl, Dinosaur. There are also warnings on the Kilimanjaro Safari. In my experience the Safari is only a little bumpy and not fast at all. Check with your doctor, but I have ridden that one myself when pregnant and did not have any problem.

    As you can see, these lists are very short and there are dozens of attractions at each of the parks. You should have no problem keeping busy and entertained during your trip.
