So many readers ask about my trip to Disney World, which I took at 28 weeks pregnant. I can find any reason to visit Walt Disney World, but we used it as a “babymoon” before the arrival of baby #2.
It’s probably one of the most unexpected places think of while planning a babymoon, but I have some awesome reasons why it rocks! People who don’t understand Disney will probably give you that side-eye and question why you’ll go, “But you can’t ride any rides“. That’s not only false, but far from the truth. There is so much to enjoy at Walt Disney World while you’re expecting and traveling with your partner.
It’s a fun destination that you’ll want to consider and I’ve got some tips for your trip too…
Planning Tips for a Walt Disney World Babymoon
Visit During the Cooler Months
The one caviot to planning a Disney World babymoon is to plan it for the cooler Winter months. Staying out the Florida heat is a must and you’ll want to keep hydrated. Plan your Disney babymoon for the Winter or Spring months. Fall months tend to be warm still.
Splurge for a Romantic Room
Walt Disney World has so many resort options with such diverse themes. Now is the time to spend a little extra for a romantic view, in a relaxing spot. I love the Savanna View rooms at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. You can relax on the patio and watch the animals and the rooms feel quiet compared to high traffic resorts.
Visit the Parks
Your Babymoon isn’t the time to close the park and ride every attraction. This is the vacation to watch the parades, take photos, shop and catch the shows. There are still some rides that Moms-to-Be can ride, but don’t plan to hit every ride. It’s a fun opportunity to look for some Disney nursery decor and celebrate your bump with a castle photo!
Enjoy Fine Dining
Another romantic option, for couples taking a Babymoon, is to experience Disney’s signature dining options. Restaurants like Citrico, Jiko and California Grill are beautiful dining locations that offer delicious gourmet meals prepared by world class chefs. Give into those pregnancy cravings and order some dessert too.
Relax at the Spa
When you need a break, the spa is your answer! Disney spas are top notch and offer prenatal services. You can also book a couples massage and reconnect together. Guests are allowed to take advantage of the spa all day, even if you only book one treatment. Just reserve your treatment a few months prior to your vacation.
I guarantee that you can plan a romantic a fun, relaxing and romantic babymoon at Walt Disney World. I truly enjoyed mine and would definitely do it again! You just need to plan it according to your needs and know that you can’t do everything on a Disney babymoon. It’s all about relaxing and reconnecting, as a couple, with the help of Disney magic.
