Hi everyone! I finally scheduled our first family Disney vaction for May 21-28, 2011. But then OOPs! we found out that I'm pregnant and guessing that I'm due July 22, 2011. How are crowds that time of year? We may move the trip up a couple of weeks, if we can and if the crowds are lighter. Has anyone ever done Disney World that pregnant? Any tips, advice, or suggestions you can share? I thought about buying a new pair of tennis shoes closer to our trip because I'm sure my feet will be swollen by then but then again I'm thinking I need to get them early so that I can break them in....

First off, Congratulations!

I haven't gone to Disney when I was that pregnant, and depending on your doctor, they may suggest that you not go that close to your due date in case you go early.

Thank you! I'm going to try to change our vacation until the end of October so that I'm not later in a pregnancy. Also, I want to wait a few months after he is due so that I make sure I have time to recover after delivery and make sure the baby is not so small and that it can handle being in crowds. DH does not do very well with large crowds so he is not planning on going to the parks everyday. On the days that he stays behind the baby will stay with him so that I can enjoy Disney with the older two kids without being slowed down by a newborn.

Well, I will say that October and not pregnant sounds MUCH better than May and pregnant.

Thanks! It is good to know that October is a better time to go because we changed our dates to the end of October!! Now I can look for information on MNSSHP and maybe take the older kids (my son and my cousin's daughter) to the party!
