Disney ?

I'm looking to book Disneyland tomorrow (Cali) just wondering how much I'll be able to go on seven months pregnant with an almost three year old? Anyone have any experience?

I think Nancy? will have a good idea, as she organizes disney trips.

I could be wrong and have the completely wrong person!

I'm going to Disney World in Sept, where I will also be 7 months pregnant. I don't expect to keep up with them much, as the mere walking will wipe me out... But I'm sure I should be able to get on mild rides like Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh... maybe even Pirates. Ask your doc/midwife! I'll have a 3 year old too then. I am sure I will take lots of stops at stores and restaurants to rest and cool off..

We are also going to the Disney waterpark, and I plan to float around the lazy river all day with my big old belly popping out haha.

I'll actually be in Disneyland on the 17th (for 3 days!). I go every year, and I have gone when I was pregnant with DD. There's still plenty of stuff you can go on, just not any of the rollercoasters (Space Mountain, Indiana Jones, Splash Mountain)... things like that. Even though I can't ride my favorites, it's still a blast! If I were you I would check out their website, www.disneyland.com, and you can go down the list of attractions in both parks, and each one will tell you whether or not they recommend it for expectant mothers (if it says nothing, you're OK to ride!). Have fun!

sorry i missed this post. usually i'm all over disney questions!! Smile

you can TOTALLY do disney at 7 months pregnant. AND you can do it with a toddler. there are so many things that you can ride. same goes for the three year old. most rides at disneyland and walt disney world do not have height restrictions. and all of those you can go on (think - haunted mansion, pirates, dumbo...all of it!)

drink lots of water, relax and people watch when you get tired!

DH, DS and i are going to WDW in september. it's our last trip as a family of three! really looking forward to it. WDW is VERY hot in september but so many of the rides are air conditioned. plus all the shops are AND the restaurants. i plan on eating my way through the parks each day!

i was in WDW at about 6 months pregnant with DS#1. it was an awesome trip!

i want to add that if anyone can escape someplace (doesn't have to be disney! lol) before the baby is born i say go for it. DH and i went to ireland, rome, and disney while i was pg with DS. and this time we will have gone to maui and disney before #2 is born. it's nice to have that "babymoon"!!

doesn't have to be a big trip, just a nice escape to reconnect is special!

I'm leaving DH at home ! He has no desire yo go (he hates the fakeness of Las Vegas and couldn't stand Universsl Studios), so I'm taking my mom instead! Were doing east coast, then so cal, then up to Seattle, Vancouver, then back here. Can't wait!

Thanks gig sll the info! I'm excited to be able to go on so much! I was scared it would be me waiting on the sidelines whole my dd and mom went on everything. I do have a question though. How far in advance should u reserve a character breakfast and can you buy meal plans insure or do I have to do that I. Advance?

I am more excited about this trip than I was when I went when I was ten!!!

if you're staying on property at disney you can purchase a dining plan.

you can make advanced dining reservations up to 180 days in advance. i suggest making your reservations as soon as possible.

Yes, we did WDW last September and it was HOT, but we had fun! We booked lunch at the Cinderella Castle, so that will be a nice and still fun break for DS and ME!

Do you know where I might be able to get any discounts on the entry fees? They are SO much, just wondering...

We are doing the water park one day, and I'll just float around on the river.. and yes, I plan to sit and people watch, and eat lots of ice cream. Smile

discounts on entry fees depend on where you stay, how long you stay, and where you buy your tickets.

we have a few ressies: chef mickey's character breakfast (mickey, minnie, pluto, donald, and goofy) and hollywood and vine character breakfast (handy manny, oso, little einsteins), also eating at via napoli (epcot), le chefs de france (epcot), raglan road (downtown disney) and liberty tree tavern (magic kingdom).

even if we don't use all these reservations it's good to have them because WDW is offering a free dining deal in september so ALOT of people will be eating at sit-down restaurants and it'll be hard to walk up and get in.

Honestly I would check on ebay... people buy tickets and then don't get to use them, or they get them for free and want to sell them for cheap. You can get some great deals...
