Hi everyone! Long time, no see. Disneyland hasn't been in my budget for awhile, and it kind of depressed me to constantly be reminded of it, so I took some time off. I've had some big life changes- I'm pregnant! I'm due in October. I'm trying to find a way to renew my pass because my doctor says I need to relieve stress, and get more exercise. There's no better way than spending time at Disneyland! I'm not sure how to afford it yet, but I'm working on it. Anyways, earlier today I heard about the 24 hour day on May 24th, and I HAVE to go. I'm working on a game plan to survive the full time. I made it 18 hours on leap day, and I want to try again. This time I'll have some new challenges, like I won't be able to rely on energy drinks so much! This will be my fiance's second time ever at Disneyland, and his first experience wasn't all that great. I have a quick question, I haven't been able to find a definitive list of rides that are off-limits to pregnant women. Obviously space, splash, indie, etc., but are there any others that might surprise me? I'm afraid to ask, but what about RSR? I'll be devastated if it's on the no-no list. I can't find any info on the Disneyland website.

I didn't go on any ride that had a height requirement. Some CMs over there at RSR told me they've had pregnant women ride, but I honestly wouldn't risk the health or life of my future baby for a ride. Good luck with your challenge. Remember to drink LOTS of water and take breaks. Take advantage of the shows and getting off your feet. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 6:29PM
Congrats to you!!!! - Superspacemountainfan  92.1 #3711 6:29PM
Thanks. I'm not going to do anything that could risk the baby. I do plan on talking to my doctor about it, though. I know I've seen warnings posted on some rides, and I'm wondering why Disneyland's website doesn't have a list of the rides that have these warnings. - brit_brit  308.3 #869 7:16PM
Congrats! - MsPirateLisaMarie  173.2 #2352 7:17PM
Congratulations! Wishing you a happy & healthy pregnancy! - LBChica  2437.4 #59 7:24PM
First off, congrats on the baby. I would be wary of the 24 hour funday. Someone said earlier that there's a dance competition and it's on memorial day weekend. If it's anything like last year, it will hit capacity very quick - SpiritOfAdventure  1044.8 #176 7:41PM
last year didn't hit capacity until close to midnight. as far as dance competitions and stuff go, there's so much else to do that it shouldn't be a problem. if it's too much to handle, we'll leave. crowds don't bother me much, I used to go on holidays all the time. On leap day, I had done pretty much everything I had wanted to before 10 am. this time with both parks open 24 hours, I'll have to revise my plan a little bit, but I think we'll be okay. By the time the crowds start coming in, we'll be enjoying shows, riding the train, etc. - brit_brit  308.3 #869 7:48PM
Keep in mind though when you're pregnant you tend to get tired much more quickly. Your body is so busy taking care of that baby that it just tires you out. Best of luck and have fun :) - misschurro  6362.1 #17 8:18PM
congratulations! And definitely go on RSR. It is actually a relaxing ride(: awesome!!! - MandCDisney  16.6 #8112 8:04PM
The first part is relaxing, but the racing part is kind of rough! As a CM, I wouldn't recommend it to any pregnant woman. The second I found out I was pregnant I stopped going on any rides with a height requirement. I even had a woman who was 5 weeks pregnant ask if she should go on Indy and I recommended she didn't. - IDVandalSkipperCM  2417.2 #61 8:44PM
Congrats - latino310izzy15  4.9 #19017 8:26PM
I didn't go on any rides with height requirements and my Doctor actually said I shouldn't go on any rides that spin a lot. I had a hard time not doing things like RSR, but then I figured its not just the ride, there is a risk of a sudden stop. I am very conservative though. - Mickey82  286.6 #998 9:17PM
Congrats! Just like the others have suggested, make sure you drink plenty of water and rest. I went to the parks a couple of times during my pregnancy and it was definitely more exhausting than I expected. - KelstersInc2319  60.2 #4433 9:43PM
Congrats! Drink plenty of water and powerade! Remember if u need to rest u can go to first aid to lay down,and they have a cold water fountain! - princessVanessa  384.3 #585 10:00PM
Congratulation! Have fun and take care!!! - Boundin  711.7 #272 10:06PM
Just looked it up...8 rides aren't recommended: Indiana, Space, Splash, Thunder, Matterhorn, Gadget's Go Coaster, Star Tours, and Autopia. DCA's list of unrecommended rides include: Tower of Terror, Screamin', Grizzly, Silly Symphony Swings, Soaring over California, Goofy's Sky School, RSR, Mater's, and Luigi's Flying Tires. Seems to me that Disneyland may be your best bet since there are more rides you can ride there. Congrats and have fun! - BrerRabbit  360.8 #642 10:22PM
I rode Matterhorn at 36 weeks. As for game plan if it was me I would spend the night Thursday, go really early on Friday get a hand stamp and when your tired go rest and then go back later. Keep it waking distance tho! Hope you can make it - minnieismyhomegirl  167.7 #2441 10:26PM
Congrats on the baby!! - missariel33  2115.5 #72 10:27PM
