Hi all! I'm roughly 22 weeks along and have a trip planned to Disney when I will be around 25 weeks. I for got to ask Doc about going on rides. I of course don't plan on going on any rollercosters or extreme rides but I was wondering what would be safe and what wouldn't ? I heard that baby is very well protected in the sack and vigirous shaking should not harm the baby. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated...

Honey, espically with your elevated risk pregnancy i would not even attempt to go on any rides. My doctor said the only thing thats safe to go on is the merry go round. The baby is very well protected from slips, bumps, and falls, but not from the sudden jerks of certain rides (can cause placental adruption) If you are going to go on any rides i would stick to the kiddy ones where there is no sudden jerky movements and no tight restraints

yea I guess your right thats what I was guessing too but I was even questioning the kiddie rides thats why I posted.

When you go to buy your tickets there is a sign that tells you whats safe for expecting mothers...although it says its safe i still wouldnt go on but only bc im paranoid! but one of my friends did it all the time so i guess its up to the mom

Hi, I was curious, so I did a quick search on the internet and found this site: http://www.mouseplanet.com/akrock/akrock15.htm Depending which park you go to, there are apparently only a few attractions that expectant mothers are advised not to ride. From my doc, you should avoid any jarring rides that can start/stop suddenly, i.e. I would definitely avoid vigorous shaking. Stick to the wimpy cute rides like "It's a Small World". Have fun!

I just went to Disney a few weeks ago- which park are you going to? Before we went into the park (we went to Magic Kingdom) we went into the outside shoppe and purchased a wheelchair (It was $10) and BOY let me tell you that was the BEST thing ever. We had it the whole day and we were able to get to the head of the line on all the rides. Each ride has a sign that tells you if you can go on it if you're preggo, but Epcot has more wheel-chair friendly rides. It really saved me. I couldn't imagine my ankles after an entire day of walking and since you're going in July- girl it'll be hot as hell. Well worth the price to get the wheel chair so you have a place to sit when the fireworks/parades/etc go on. I didn't use it the entire time, but when I needed it - it was great.

Able to go on it's a small world, Peter Pan (there is a very small jerk at the end when the ride stops though), the train that goes around the park, haunted house, teacups, merry go round (I sat in the stationary seat though).

Hi Amy! You live in Florida too don't you? Well I'm going to Magic Kingdom. I know it's gonna be so hot! But I promised my daughter way back before I found out I was pregnant. Do they have power wheel chairs available too, because hubby will not be pushing me around, he's wierd about that kind of stuff ;0 Plus the lady that is getting us in for free can only do it in July...so hey free is free I'll be ok I just did not want to to have to sit everything out. So how were you able to get to skip the lines? Just cause you had the wheelchair?

 

AmyF - June 22

HI! Yes, I live in FL- yep they had scooters available, but there were 6 of us, so DH and everyone else were pushing around. HECK YA- we got in first of the line b/c of the wheel chair on the rides I could go on. Space mountain (which has the LONGEST wait time- I would go there first) we wheeled us in and skipped a bazillion people (there was still a line, but we were waiting only like 10 minutes) so when we got to the top the staff just wheeled me over to the waiting area because I did the "Oh I can't ride this at all!" speech. All the other rides (thunder mountain esp.) my sis was able to get a fast pa__s and jump on with hardly any wait (I couldn't go on that one of course since it's a roller coaster. The other rides I mentioned- you'll be fine on. I mean, compared to the entire park (now we didn't really go into the kiddie park though) I was able to go on a fair few rides.

Definite NO to: Space mountain, thunder mountain, splash mountain (oh- the boat ride for Jaws was closed for renovations that day so that's why I never went on it, but you'll have to ask about that one you're on a boat, but if I remember right it jerks a lot and with the slippery wet boat- probably not a good idea to get in it anyway)

My sis wants to go down again in July but I don't think so- it's WAY too hot. Make sure you drink plenty of water (you can bring in water bottles and we just filled them up at the water fountains- hey- free water!) I think for just a regular Aquafina water bottle was $3.

Make sure you wear sunblock too.

 

cmfqueens - June 22

Good ideas Amy thanks!!!!!! Do you recall how much the power chairs were? I was thinking that whole oh I can't ride this thing too. (haha) What part of Florida do you live in?

 

AmyF - June 22

I only got the regular wheel chair. I have no idea how much the scooters are.

 

cmfqueens - June 22

Oh I'll just call them...what part of Fla do you live in?

 

AmyF - June 22
