My family and I have a tripped planned for Disney World at the end of September-beginning of October. At the time of making the trip we had no idea I would become pregnant and now we're expecting the baby to arrive October 31st. I personally feel that I'm able to make the trip okay but would like others input as well. It will be a 18 hour drive, that we plan on splitting between 3-4 days so it will be easier on me and our coming 2 year old daughter. We also have the option to fly if need be but I feel that scares me a little more than making the drive although it would be much shorter. My first born daughter was born 12 days earlier than her due date so I'm thinking/hoping a month away from my due date will be enough time for us to be able to enjoy Disney still. What is your opinion of being 18 hours from home at Disney World while 34-36 weeks pregnant? Any advice? Also would you drive or fly? I still have to discuss this with my doctor also but I'm really wanting to go!

Like Little Miss said, you would need doctor's clearance before being allowed to fly.
How much are you going to enjoy the trip anyway? You are going to big and uncomfortable. Will you really want to be walking all day? You can't go on and of the rides or fun things.
I personally would cancel the trip, you aren't going to really enjoy it.

You need doctors clearance to fly I believe when you are that far along. Either way, flying or sitting, it can be really hard on your body with swelling etc. There are so many reasons I would have cancelled the trip the minute I knew I was pregnant, but now you have to figure out the best options for you and baby. I would talk with your doctor about it and take their advice. We don't know your medical history, and anything anyone says could be detrimental.
