    ? for those of you that have been to WDW pregnant. Will be 7 mos w/3rd child (have 7 and 3 yr old girls) May 31 - Jun 5. Hubby not sure of the heat during that time and my being that pregnant. Other than stay hydrated any other suggestions for great trip

    Hello Jennifer! I have also been to Disney seven months pregnant, and it was a lot of fun.

    My number one suggestion would be to just take it easy and not push yourself to do too much. Find a bench in the shade to rest and get a cool drink of water every now and then. Also try to alternate between attractions that are outside and those that are inside in the air conditioning. Think about getting pictures with the characters so you can show your baby his or her first trip to Disney World.

    If you are worried about the heat, try going to the parks in the mornings and evenings, and taking a break in the afternoon which is the hottest time of day. If possible, head back to your resort and take a dip in the pool, or take a quick nap in your room to rejuvenate. If you don't want to head back to your resort, consider making lunch reservations, so that you can sit down in the air conditioning, rest your feet and enjoy a good meal. When I went to Disney pregnant, I made sure we had at least one table service meal a day, for just this reason.

    Most of all, relax and enjoy the time with your family. You won't be able to ride all of the rides, but you can really enjoy watching your daughters have a great time. Pace yourself, wear comfortable shoes, drink plenty of water, and most of all have fun! Before you know it, you'll be visiting Disney as a family of five!
