Last trip for family of 3 while 24 weeks prego?

We want to go to Disney one more time at the end of September with our 5 year old daughter before our second baby comes in January. I'll be 24 weeks pregnant. We want to go during free dining Sept 25. But I literally need to book the trip today to get the free dining. Should we just save our money and go with all 4 of us next year or go for it and enjoy one last trip with just the three of us?

We went in December with our 7 year old while I was preggo with her sister I was about 20 weeks. So I say go and enjoy one last vacation with just the 5 year old before new baby comes. Congrats!!

We waited and are glad we did. We will be leaving in a month to go down with what will be our 10 month old. She is free in the park free on the plane so cost is no different. She is practically walking and really enjoy's the outside. I think after the past 10 months with a newborn this is the perfect trip coming at the perfect time for the family for a little R&R and a breakup of the work babysitting etc.. schedule.

We squeezed in one last trip with our son when I was about 6 months prego. We had a great time and he still talks about it to this day. It's a special memory he will never forget, I'm so glad we did it.

I went while 25 weeks pregnant in September 2009 and had a blast! We took it easy, stayed hydrated, and had a lot of fun.

My biggest tip, outside of the obvious stuff above, is to know where the bathrooms are! That baby could decide to use your bladder as a trampoline at any given moment and you'll definitely want to know where the nearest place to pee is.

I say go now, enjoy your last big trip with 1 child and take advantage of the free dining! Assuming you're having a normal pregnancy and the doctor says its okay, you probably know the 2nd trimester is the best time to travel. Plus, you can always go back next year after the baby is born.

We have a toddler and a 3 month old. It is going to be challenging with two when we go to Disney in a few weeks. I really wish we could have taken a trip while I was pregnant, but the scheduling didn't work out and I was considered a bit high-risk.

I've gone 4x when pg. Twice it was early, twice I was around 25-26 weeks. I was a little slower and took some more rest breaks but overall it was great.
