Recently a very good friend of mine told me she was pregnant. After lots of gushing, and me saying how awesome motherhood is she told me she was going to Disneyland on vacation. I gushed about how much I loved my babymoon because of all the Pregnancy Safe Rides at Disneyland Resort.
When my friend casually said that she couldn’t wait to go on Indiana Jones, I couldn’t help but pause…..quickly followed by a “No, nope, definitely not”. I asked her if she knew that at Disneyland they post warning signs telling you that certain rides are off limit while pregnant.
In the spirit of helpfulness, for her and everyone else, I thought I’d provide a list of pregnancy safe rides right here.
Please keep in mind that even though these rides are considered pregnancy safe exercise caution when going on them. I went on Roger Rabbits Cartoon spin because it’s an all age’s ride. Afterwards I wish I hadn’t because of how bumpy the ride system is. You know your body best right now so do what you feel is right for you.
Need A Break At Disneyland Resort?
If you need a break from the parks think about getting a massage at Mandara Spa located at the Grand Californian. Don’t forget about the amazing dining options, I love the guacamole at Tortilla joe’s. Last, but not least, watch the parades and shows. I can very happily plop down on a park bench and wait for the fireworks for an hour or two as long as I’ve got some popcorn.

Should you feel like you need to go to L&D while on your trip there are two hospitals that have been highly recommended to me. I personally have gone to the Kaiser and they were great.
