For expectant mothers planning a visit to Walt Disney World, having a baby on board doesn’t necessarily mean missing out on your favorite attractions. There’s a lot to see do and explore at Disney World while pregnant but there are also rides that Disney advises that you stay away from if expecting.
To help make your Disney World visit as safe and comfortable as possible, here is a list of attractions that Disney recommends you skip if pregnant!

The 30 attractions listed above have been outlined by Disney as those best to avoid. However, it is also essential that you check near the entrance of each attraction where signs will be posted notifying guests of health and safety advisories. Also, always use your discretion. There are rides, like the Mad Tea Party for instance, that definitely made me sick when I was expecting. If you are worried, best skip it!
Any other tips for expecting mothers? Yes! If you’ve never been to Walt Disney World before, I reckon you’ll be surprised at just how big it is and how much walking is involved. Be sure to wear super comfortable shoes and take lots of breaks. For moms-to-be with a quickly approaching due date, you may even want to consider an ECV or wheelchair rental to take off a bit of the strain! Also always be sure to stay as hydrated as possible and to take breaks that take you out of the sun!
FastPasses are also a must-do, use them to drastically cut down on wait times! Check out this article for recommendations on best uses of FastPasses.
