When I first found out we were expecting I was really worried that I wouldn’t be able to go on any rides at Disney World until after the baby was born.  I knew that I could watch the shows and other entertainment that Disney provided but other than that I was unsure.  Chris assured me that it would be fine and that there would be stuff for me to do, so we booked a trip and headed down to the happiest place on Earth!

You may not be able to go on thrill rides, but there is still plenty to do for pregnant women at Disney! Here is a master list of all the rides/attractions to do and see while at the parks.

I’ll admit that I was really bummed not to go on the thrill rides on our last two Disney trips but was pleasantly surprised at how much I could still do.  Chris and I had a great time following this list and we even explored some areas of each park that we rarely make time for.  It was a lot of fun!

Rides to go on at the Magic Kingdom:

  • WDW Railroad
  • Swiss Family Tree House (there’s a lot of walking and climbing with this one so if your feet hurt or you get out of breath easily you may want to pass on this one!)

  • Enchanted Tiki room
  • Jungle Cruise
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Tom Sawyers Island

Rides to go on at Hollywood Studios:

  • The Great Movie Ride (we never go on this, but more so because we don’t like it)
  • Toy Story Midway Mania
  • Voyage of the Little Mermaid
  • Disney Jr. Live on Stage (really great if you have little ones!)
  • Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular
  • Muppet Vision 3D

Rides to go on at Animal Kingdom:

  • Festival of the Lion King (show, bleachers seating)
  • Flights of Wonder bird show (bleachers seating)
  • Finding Nemo the Musical (bleachers seating)
  • Triceratop Spin
  • Kilimanjaro Safari (use your better judgement for this one!  I didn’t go on it but there are some pregnant women who do)
  • Animal viewing trails
  • Train ride to the Conservation Station
  • It’s Tough to be a Bug 3D

One thing I would encourage every pregnant woman to do while at the parks is to take it easy.  You don’t have to do everything and it is okay to take breaks!  That was the hardest part for me, because I wanted to make sure we were able to do everything we wanted but my poor back and feet definitely suffered when I pushed myself too hard.  Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, take lots of breaks, eat plenty of snacks, and drink a ton of water!  As long as you do that you’ll have a successful and enjoyable Disney vacation!
