Tips for Visiting Disney World While Pregnant

April 14, 2023
By

If you’re a big Disney fan, Disney World can be a magical place for a babymoon!  Of course, it is always best to consult with your doctor before deciding to travel, but if you do plan to visit Disney World while pregnant, here are some tips to make it more comfortable and celebrate this exciting time!


Check Which Attractions Are Still Available to You

Roller coasters and other thrill rides are clearly off limits throughout a pregnancy.  These include:  

Magic Kingdom

  • The Barnstormer
  • Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
  • Seven Dwarfs Mine Train
  • Space Mountain
  • Tomorrowland Speedway
  • TRON Lightcycle / Run

EPCOT

  • Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind
  • Mission: SPACE
  • Test Track

Hollywood Studios

  • Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run
  • Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster 
  • Slinky Dog Dash
  • Star Tours – The Adventures Continue
  • Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance
  • The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Animal Kingdom

  • Avatar Flight of Passage
  • DINOSAUR
  • Expedition Everest – Legend of the Forbidden Mountain
  • Kali River Rapids
  • Kilimanjaro Safaris

Despite this list, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find that there are a good number of attractions that you can enjoy while pregnant.  Dark rides like Peter Pan’s Flight, boat rides like It’s a Small World and The Jungle Cruise, and omnimover rides like the Haunted Mansion are just some examples of the rides you can still go on.  

Take It More Slowly 

Pregnancy makes you feel hotter and more tired, so definitely plan for more breaks in the AC.  Attractions like the People Mover, Carousel of Progress, and just about any of the indoor shows are a great way to sit and cool off.  This is also the perfect time to slow down, savor some of the magic, and take in the ambiance of the parks and resorts.  

Stay Hydrated

Bring a refillable bottle to make sure you drink plenty of water.  It will save you a lot compared to buying bottled water.  Plus, you won’t have to rely on the small cups of ice water from quick service locations.  You’ll find bottle filling stations at:

  • Magic Kingdom: Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe
  • EPCOT: Connections Eatery, outside the restrooms by Refreshment Port, the Odyssey, and just outside International Gateway
  • Hollywood Studios: by the restrooms in Galaxy’s Edge, the exit of Millenium Falcon: Smugglers Run, near the bus stops and Skyliner station
  • Animal Kingdom: the queues for Avatar Flight of Passage and Na’vi River Journey   

Wear Forgiving Footwear

Another not-so-fun part of pregnancy is swollen feet and ankles.  Since Disney trips usually involve lots of walking and standing, be sure to wear comfy shoes.  Sandals are great because they tend to be more forgiving, and depending on the style, they can be easy to adjust should your feet swell.

Get Photos to Capture This Moment

Take pictures to commemorate the trip or share the happy news!

Take plenty of photos to commemorate the trip!  You can reserve the Capture Your Moment photo session, get the PhotoPass Memory Maker photo package, or simply take your own photos.  Some people like to use this time to take baby announcement photos or gender reveal photos.  

Try Out the Mocktails

If you’d like some fun drinks to celebrate, Disney World has quite a few non-alcoholic beverages to try.  From the lava smoothie found in most resort pool bars to Victoria & Albert’s zero-proof cocktail pairings for its tasting menu, you can find non-alcoholic options at a wide range of lounges and restaurants.  


Enjoy your trip, and congratulations on your future mouseketeer!
