It is not uncommon for pregnant women to enjoy time in Walt Disney World, but if you are pregnant, there may be extra questions that you have. You may wonder what rides are safe, and what are the best rides for pregnant women to enjoy at Disney World? When it comes to attractions Disney offers a large amount of shows that pregnant women will be able to participate in, but what about rides? We have created a list of the best rides for pregnant women in each Walt Disney World park. We have also compiled a full list of all pregnancy safe attractions that is all the way at the end of the article.
Best Pregnancy Safe Attractions
This ride is a lot of fun for anyone, including expectant mothers. Jungle Cruise is simply a low key boat ride filled with animatronic animals and made complete with a very punny skipper.
Pirates of the Caribbean
One of the most iconic rides in Disney is also safe for pregnant women. Pirates of the Caribbean is another boat ride but with a completely different theme. This ride includes an entire pirate story line and even a small thrill drop.
Peter Pan’s Flight
Pregnant women will love this ride beginning at its queue. The queue itself is like its own little show, and the ride is a fun and easy flight. Peter Pan’s Flight is definitely a must do ride.
Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid
For the moms who love princesses, this is a fun and musical ride. Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid is also air conditioned, something that pregnant moms do not want to turn down when contending with the Florida heat.
Astro Orbiter is a spinning ride similar to Dumbo or the Magic Carpets of Aladdin, but the reason it tops those for best rides is because it spins a bit faster and it goes much higher. This attraction will give guests an amazing view of Magic Kingdom and Cinderella’s Castle.
Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin
Normally battling aliens wouldn’t be considered a pregnancy safe activity, but it is with Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin. Sit back and grab ahold of your blasters for a great time.
In this 3D adventure appropriately dubbed It’s Tough to be a Bug, you’ll enter at the base of The Tree of Life and don some “bug eyes” to become one with the insects to learn how they navigate the world and survive.
One of the classic Epcot attractions, Spaceship Earth is a must do pregnant or not. It is pregnancy safe and nice, mild ride.
Soarin’ Around The World
One of the most innovative and breathtaking attractions in Epcot, Soarin’ Around The World is perfectly safe for pregnant women, while giving a little bit of extra thrill. Guests are placed into a dome screen to give a 4-D experience of travel around the globe.
Frozen Ever After
Frozen Ever After is not just for kids, it is great for everyone even pregnant women. This boat ride includes fun music and characters and even a small drop for a little extra splash.
Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railroad is one of the best rides in all the Disney parks for pregnant women. It is perfectly safe but has a lot of moving pieces that make it an absolute blast to ride.
Toy Story Midway Mania
A fun carnival style game brings out the competitive side to all playing. Even pregnant mothers can use these pop guns to hit the top score in Toy Story Midway Mania.
Alien Swirling Saucers
Alien Swirling Saucers is an absolute rocket blast. This ride is pretty fast paced, so expectant moms may wish to double check with their doctor, but Disney states on their website that Alien Swirling Saucers is safe for pregnant women.
All Pregnancy Safe Attractions at Disney World
Magic Kingdom Attractions that are Safe for Pregnant Women
For expecting mothers who are looking to do more rides than shows, Magic Kingdom has the most options out of any other Walt Disney World park. Both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios have good options as well, and they also offer a lot of immersive experiences in just walking around those parks. Animal Kingdom offers mostly shows with only two actual rides in the park that Disney considers safe for pregnant women so if you are looking for rides, Animal Kingdom may be further down on your list, but it is still a breathtakingly beautiful park.
In addition to the attractions listed, all parades and fireworks shows in the parks are pregnancy friendly, since all expectant mothers need to do is sit or stand back and enjoy the show. Character meet and greets are also perfectly safe for moms looking to just have some fun with their favorite Disney characters.
