Here are a few tips to get you through at pregnant trip at Disneyland:
- Stay hydrated – bring a giant, insulated water bottle if you can!

Is there a pregnancy pass at Disneyland?
Despite the rumors no, there is no such thing as a pregnancy pass at Disneyland. Some women can get a disability pass if they are unable to walk due to pregnancy, but this is not something I would count on unless you have a legitimate issue walking.
If you are pregnant and visiting Disneyland, there are still plenty of fun rides for you to enjoy. While you may have to skip some more intense rides, plenty of milder options are just as entertaining. So don’t worry—you can still have a great time at the Happiest Place on Earth, even while expecting.
