Pregnant at Disney World? What will you do...?

If you happen to be traveling to Disney World while you are pregnant you are in for a treat. Though many of the big thrills may be off limits to you, there is still so much you can do!

Here I will highlight the rides that are off limits, the attractions not to skip, and even give you some good options for R&R in the parks! Keep in mind that Disney does a fabulous job of warning you which rides they feel are not good choices for mommy’s to be, so read any and all warning attached to the attractions.

Magic Kingdom:

Off Limits: Space Mountain, Tomorrowland Speedway, Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, And The Great Goofini.

Don’t miss: Haunted Mansion, Mickey’s Philharmagic, Pirates of the Caribbean, The Jungle Cruise, and Peter Pans Flight.

Need a break: Grab a rocking chair in the shade on Tom Sawyers Island


Off Limits: Mission: Space, Test Track

Don’t miss: Soarin, The American Adventure, Living with the Land, Gran Fiesta Tour Starring The Three Caballeros, and Impressions de France.

Need a break: Head to world showcase where you are sure to find a great sitting areas within many of the countries. My two favorites are Italy and The UK.

Hollywood Studios:

Off Limits: Tower of Terror, Rock N Rollercoaster, and Star Tours

Don’t Miss: Walt Disney; one mans dream, Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story Mania, and Lights, Motors, Action.

Need a Break:  Head on over to Muppet Vision 3D. The wait is never long and the theater is cool and dark. There are also plenty of benches near the sorcerers hat if you need a good central place to relax.

Animal Kingdom

Off Limits: Expedition Everest, Kali River Rapids, Primeval Whirl, Dinosaur, and Kilimanjaro Safari (though many women feel safe on this ride, it can be bumpy)

Don’t Miss: Festival of the Lion King, Flights of Wonder, and Finding Nemo The Musical. Also check out the walking trails if you are feeling up to it, to see the many animal inhabitants of the park.

Need a Break: Ride the train to Rafikis Planet Watch or grab a bench near Dinosaur!

I feel Animal Kingdom is the least pregnant friendly park and Epcot is the best park to visit while expecting. Remember wherever your travels take you to take breaks and stay hydrated!

If you already have your little one with you be sure to check out Chip’s list of Best Rides and Attractions to Nurse or Bottle Feed your Little Ones.

  1. What do you do? You do everything you do when you are not pregnant, except roller coasters and alcohol. I went to Disneyland at 34 weeks, and the only other thing I did differently was go back to the room one day “to rest” but really I did laundry and was bored wishing I was back in the park. Pregnant women aren’t lepers, my goodness, what a horrible title. Have YOU ever been pregnant at Disney World?

  2. I also went in 2009 and stayed at the Caribbean Beach resort. I was only 7 weeks pregnant at the time. There were fabulous rocking chairs in the gift shop outside of Splash Mountain. I would sit in those while my husband oldest went on rides. It was probably my favorite spot in the park while pregnant.

    I did choose to go on Kiliminjaro Safari. We asked the cast member putting us in to lines for a seat that was “less bumpy” as I had read about online. He very thoughtfully put us in line. My husband was rather parnoid the whole time and kept asking me how I was, but I felt great and really enjoyed the safari. I’m glad I choose to go. It was perfectly safe for me to ride.

    I also brought a ton of gingerale and saltines with me. I would carry peppermints in my purse each day as well. Gingerale was especially hard to find sometimes and really got me through the first trimester so I’m glad I brought some. We drove, but if flying I would order it from the grocery store to be delivered to the hotel.

    I’m very excited to go back not pregnant soon! We still had a fabulous time, but I really can’t wait to go on all my favorite rides that I missed out on last time!

  3. I went while pregnant in 2009 while my husband was upset I didn’t get to ride the big rides ( this was my first visit to WDW ) he still got to go on them. I would walk with him through the line and then slip out at the last exit. Before getting on the ride if we were unsure of what I needed to do to exit we would just ask the cast member at the entrance.

    On tower of terror they told me to go til the end and a cast member there would help me. I was a little worried as we passed the last exit sign but once my husband was put in his spot for the ride the cast member told me to wait in a circle on the ground and the bellhop would come get me in the service elevator. Sure enough after his ride loaded and started the elevator I was in front of opened and took me back down to the exit.

    We were staying at the Caribbean so for some R&R I would find a shaded hammock on the resort property and take a nap. While I did this he would go back to the parks and use the single rider line.

  4. I went when I was 24 weeks. All the walking made me feel pretty good. Was able to do more rides than I expected too!

  5. We felt we couldn’t ride anything so we pigged out and people watched! Oh and shopped till we dropped! 🙂

  6. Why oh Why wasn’t this written 6 yrs ago when I went, pregnant w/ my lovely daughter! There is sooooooo much we couldn’t do because I was pregnant! (Or didn’t think we could do)
