Top Things to Do at Walt Disney World While Pregnant

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

Ever wonder if it's worth visiting Walt Disney World if you were pregnant? Yes of course you can't ride EVERYTHING and braving the heat may be harder than normal but that doesn't mean it won't be fun! Many couples celebrate their last few weeks together before the birth of a new baby by going on a vacation or a babymoon. With some preparations you can have a successful and fun trip celebrating this momentous occasion!



Brittany Lynch, one of the travel advisors at Coasters & Castles Travel recently returned from her babymoon. From memorable Magic Shots to food and attractions she'll walk us thru what she was still able to enjoy on her vacation.


The attractions expectant mothers can ride include anything without a height restriction but you should also consult your physician before you travel and check the signage outside of each attraction. I think one of the cutest things are the photos and memories you create. One day they'll return to these same spots and take photos. But next time their child will be with them! Those photos would be perfect for a wall collage to watch baby grow at Walt Disney World!


Of course you should take EXTRA precautions for visiting while pregnant. Make sure to bring plenty of water and drink it frequently. Pack cooling towels, fans and snacks. Wear comfortable shoes, rest often and rent a wheel chair if needed. You'll be doing lots of walking still and sometimes that can be hard on the body that is constantly adjusting to bringing a new life into the world!

 

We just stayed at All Star Sports for our babymoon / 6 year anniversary trip. We did four days in the park and I was able to ride most attractions without height requirements. For those that I couldn’t ride I was still able to walk through the queue. This was especially great, so I could see some of Tron.

Our first night we did a late dinner at O'hana during the fireworks. It’s one of our top table service meals on property and the perfect way to start our trip.


Our first park day was in Hollywood Studios. I was able to ride:

  • Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway

  • Toy Story Mania

  • Muppet Vision 3D.

We also did the Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular and Fantasmic! with the Fantasmic! dining package from Hollywood and Vine. The buffet had a lot of great options.


Other attractions that should be suitable if expecting:

  • Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage

  • Disney Jr. Play and Dance

  • For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration

  • Green Army Drum Corps

  • Character meet and greets including Chewbacca, Edna Mode and Olaf
