    Hi Cynthia,

    Thanks for stopping by the Moms Panel. As a current pregnant mama myself, I want to wish you good luck and pixie dust on your upcoming trip! I'll also be venturing to Walt Disney World with a big belly soon, and a 3 year old and 8 year old in-tow, so here are a few things that we are planning for our family:
    • Find out if the kids are thrill seekers. At the ages of 6 and 9, your children are probably tall enough to ride most of the attractions at any of the theme parks. If you have one kiddo that loves the coasters and thrill rides, and one that does not, you'll be able to plan accordingly. My kiddo who isn't into the thrill rides will be spending a lot of time with his pregnant mom, checking out attractions that are fun but not overwhelming, like Captain EO or Peter Pan's Flight. This will also help you to choose the proper FastPass+ selections for each member of the family.
    • Plan your breaks. This will be important for not only you, but everyone in the family. While your kids may want to go, go, go, planning breaks will help keep the day magical. Schedule dining reservations for lunch and dinner, or at least keep in mind where you would like to stop for meals or snacks within each park. And hydrate! It'll be hot in June.
    • Double up on theme parks. Since you'll be visiting parks within 3 days, I suggest doubling up on a few theme parks. We love to visit Animal Kingdom during the morning, taking an afternoon break, then visiting Hollywood Studios early in the evening. If possible, we dedicate whole park days to Magic Kingdom and Epcot, due to their size.

    I hope this answered your question, Cynthia. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask at any time. I'm always here to help.

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
