What Can’t I Ride at Walt Disney World While Pregnant?

A trip to Walt Disney World while you’re pregnant is a lot different than one taken while you’re not. Even if you aren’t dealing with morning sickness and you haven’t quite gotten to the point of having twenty or thirty extra pounds to carry around, you’ll be eating more, drinking more, resting more, and (most likely) riding less.


Rides if pregnant at walt disney world


For safety reasons, Disney advises women who are expecting to avoid the following rides:

Magic Kingdom:
/// Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
/// Splash Mountain
/// Space Mountain
/// Tomorrowland Indy Speedway

/// Mission: SPACE
/// Test Track

Disney’s Hollywood Studios:
/// Star Tours
/// Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
/// Twilight Zone Tower of Terror

Animal Kingdom:
/// Expedition Everest
/// Kali River Rapids
/// Kilimanjaro Safari
/// Primeval Whirl

The good news is that’s a pretty short list, all things considered. It’s true that you’ll be missing out on some major highlights, like the Disney mountains and the Tower of Terror, but at least you’ve got an excuse to shop for baby gear or grab a snack (frozen chocolate bananas = great source of potassium!) while the rest of your party takes a ride.

    That, actually, is a VERY short list.

    As a Central Floridian who frequents all the parks, Disney does the best job of making sure that pregnant women AND smaller children can ride a good number of rides.

    I would love if someone would post about Disney (preferably Disneyland Resort) with babies! We're hoping to take our one year old this year!

    So nothing changes for Carly at Epcot and animal kingdom would be done in 30 minutes instead of two hours.

    My midwife (who is also a huge Disney fan) had no problems with me riding the Kilimanjaro Safaris at any stage of my pregnancy. She mentioned that sitting up front is less bumpy.

    To each their own as every pregnancy can vary, but I thought it was worth mentioning. We rode it numerous times throughout the months and it never once bothered me or the baby.

    My doctor said she had no problem with me riding the safari or splash mountain. She said as long as there’s no harness I should be ok
