    Planning our first trip for 2/27-3/2 for my 4.5yo. I may be 4 months pregnant at the time of the trip and I am now worried that he won't be able to experience a lot of the rides (as my husband does not ride). How many have pregnancy restrictions?

    Hi Pamela!

    You and your son will be able to ride most of the attractions, as most do not have any height restrictions/pregnancy restrictions.  Here are a list of attractions that you would not be able to ride because of either a height restriction (and or pregnancy restriction):

    Magic Kingdom:
    Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    Splash Mountain
    Space Mountain
    Stitch's Great Escape (the harness might be uncomfortable for your baby belly)
    Tomorrowland Indy Speedway (I would not ride pregnant because of the risk of being rear-ended)

    Epcot:
    Soarin' (has a height requirement, but is a very slow and gentle experience, I have personally done this one pregnant several times)
    Mission: Space
    Test Track

    Disney's Hollywood Studios:
    Tower of Terror
    Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
    Star Tours

    Disney's Animal Kingdom:
    Expedition Everest
    Dinosaur
    Primeval Whirl
    Kali River Rapids

    Kilimanjaro Safari (warns against pregnant guests riding, it's comparable to a very bumpy car ride)

    Here's a link to a page where you can sort attractions by your son's current height so you'll know what he'll be able to ride with you.

    As always, all pregnancies are different, and make sure to consult with your doctor before your trip to address your specific questions or concerns.  Keep in mind, I'm not a doctor, just a Mom.

    Have a magical vacation!
