Mom And Son On Run

    Good Day all, I am currently 5 months pregnant, we have a 13 month old, a 16 year old and an 18 year old. We go to Disney every July (with the exception of last year). My older two really want to go. Any advice as to what me and the baby can do?

    Hi Christina, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I visited Walt Disney World Resort when I was 5 1/2 months pregnant with my son in the middle of June and one of my son’s visits was when he was 13 months old. You should definitely continue with your yearly July visits!

    This handy post over at the Disney Parks Blog gives you clear information about the height requirements for almost all of the attractions at the Walt Disney World Resort’s Theme Parks. If an attraction says that it can be experienced by Guests of “any height”, then you’ll all be able to experience it together! I also found that the attractions that were available to all Guests are also the ones that are least likely to have restrictions for pregnant women. 

    Another great resource is the Planning for Preschool Kids & Little Ones page. There, you’ll find all kinds of tips and tricks for enjoying the Walt Disney World Resort with your little one! Make sure to visit the Baby Care Centers if you need a bit of a break during the day. I love their extra-large changing tables and the rocking chairs, which are especially useful if you’re still nursing. 

    Finally, considering how warm it can get in the middle of the day (for both you and your toddlers), I would recommend working a midday break (either back at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or other hotel) into your plans. Not only will this allow your little one to have a proper nap time, but it will allow you to relax and unwind (and let the swelling in your feet subside a bit) during the hottest part of the day. Finally, don't forget to HYDRATE!

    Have a Magical Day,
