Sometimes you feel like you are missing out on parts of your vacation when you are pregnant, but that’s not the case at Walt Disney World. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your vacation when visiting Walt Disney World while pregnant.
Enjoy the rides
Unlike many other theme parks, you can still enjoy the majority of rides while pregnant at Walt Disney World. Still, there are some you should avoid.
Need a break without missing the magic of Disney? Want to rest your feet and get out of the heat? Here is a list of Walt Disney World indoor shows, complete with air conditioning and seating (unless otherwise noted).

Avatar Flight of Passage is the new headliner attraction at Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. On this 3D screen- and motion-based ride, you are connected to your own avatar and fly on the back of a mountain banshee through the diverse environments of Pandora.

While this ride features a screen like Soarin’, the motions are a little more on par with Star Tours (though not as jarring or abrupt). However, the synchronization and fluidity between the screen and motion of your seat is flawless, and the ride also incorporates wind and smells to create a truly magical and immersive experience. It really does feel like you are flying on the back of a banshee through Pandora.
Walt Disney World offers an incredible number of rides and attractions for kids of any height (including infants), but there are still a handful of rides in each of the four theme parks with height restrictions.
If you are traveling with small children, you might automatically rule those rides out – but you don’t need to because Walt Disney World offers a great solution called rider swap or child swap.
