If you’ve ever been pregnant, like really pregnant, I would assume that the last thing you’d want to do is stroll around Disney Parks all day long. That is unless you believe that having a baby on Disney property makes you a lifetime owner of an Annual Pass. Although this isn’t true, and we don’t want to assume anyone’s intentions, recently, a very pregnant Guest started having contractions. This happens more than you’d think at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
We recently told you about a couple who gave birth to a bouncing baby at Disney World’s Fort Wilderness Resort. Still, this incident occurred on the other coast at Disneyland in California. Disneyland is The Walt Disney Company’s first Theme Park. Walt Disney played a significant role in its planning and development, and it carries with it many of the treasured memories from our own childhoods. It seems like the perfect place to have a baby, right? Well-no-it isn’t!
Although Walt Disney World is known for its heat and humidity, this isn’t to say that Disneyland doesn’t get hot in the summer. Although a milder experience than Florida, California can also get relatively warm. It makes you wonder how someone who’s carrying another human being inside of them could even imagine walking a Theme Park all day long! That’s exactly what happened when our Guest in question seemed to go into labor at Disneyland. Luckily for fans, Krips Food Market was able to post a video capturing the incident.
Disneyland Cast Members seemed quick to respond and get aid to the lady seen in the video. It’s unclear what the result was, but we hope it was a happy and healthy mommy and baby. Interestingly, many women, when close to giving birth, chose walking as a way to induce or hurry along their labor. If there’s anywhere you’re going to do some walking, it’s in a Disney Park.
Se highly doubt this is the first time someone has seemingly gone into labor at Disneyland or Disney World. With a high capacity for large numbers of Guests, there are lots of pregnant women present in the Parks each day. It is essential to point out that most rides aren’t safe for pregnant Guests at any Disney Park. Although Disney isn’t known for their thrill rides, it’s better to err on the side of caution. This is why many Guests will choose not to visit Walt Disney World or Disneyland when pregnant. Other than walking and eating, there is only a little for them to do!
It is great to see a quick and appropriate response to the situation from medical services at the Park. They stand ready to intervene whenever Guests need medical attention, and this time of year, they tend to stay busy. Medical service workers at Disney are one of the behind the scenes roles that don’t get as much attention or appreciation as they deserve.
