If you go to Walt Disney World, you HAVE to go to Epcot. It is my favorite park! There are a bunch of rides and you can tour a little snippet of various countries and get a feel for the different cultures around the world (which is my favorite part). I ❤ Epcot!
Today I want to give you some tips for things you can do at Epcot if you are a pregnant mom.
There was a little more walking for me at this park than at Magic Kingdom, but I think it’s because we tried to see everything, where at Magic Kingdom we just stayed between Fantasyland and Tomorrowland and I didn’t do quite as much walking. At Epcot, we wanted to do the rides and see the countries, so this meant a little more walking. It was still fine because I stopped to take breaks.
Here is a list of rides, shows and features you can check out at Epcot when pregnant (of course, you have to do this at your own risk because every pregnancy is different so don’t overdo it!):
Advanced Training Lab
The Circle of Life
Coral Reefs- Disney Animals

Additional Tips for Pregnant moms at Epcot:
1. Take Breaks
Rest on the benches whenever you get a chance! Don’t stay on your feet for too long without taking a break.
2. Sit down to Eat
You don’t have to eat at a fancy restaurant or anything, but when you do meals, sit down to eat. This will give you time off your feet. There are a lot of choices with restaurants where you can eat “around the world” at Epcot. I highly suggest trying one out!
3. Fast Pass
Standing in line for hours is going to be hard on your feet. Try to do fast passes for the lines that are generally pretty long.
They allow you to bring in water and snacks. Do it! Drink lots of water because you will be more active than usual while walking around the park.
5. Don’t stay all Day
If you can, break up your day. Go in later or go home early. This way you have time in the morning or evening to give your feet a break and rest a little.
