Disneyland Babymoon – Disneyland Diaries IV – September 2023

where we stayed:

what we ate:

We tried all the seasonal macarons (& macaroon!) this time around!



what we rode:



what we did:

Ladies & Gentlemen, WE FINALLY SAW MAGIC HAPPENS!!!!!!!!!

It was everything I ever could have hoped for! I had to have watched the parade on YouTube at least hundreds, if not thousands, of times. I listened to the entire playlist most days while getting ready. AND STILL, it was phenomenal. Each performer truly gives their heart & soul to the parade! I cried!


Halloween Screams Fireworks/Projections

I walked around the Rivers of America to an empty spot that was by Haunted Mansion, sitting on the wall over there talking to my mom on the phone. Chad was riding Big Thunder Railroad alone (since it’s not pregnancy-friendly, I was checking in with how it was going back home). Chad meets up with me & all the sudden, projections light up across the water! It was such a fun surprise! Halloween Screams was happening & it was a great view to watch from the Rivers of America. I definitely would watch it there again!!

Then the main reason we came: The Oogie Boogie Bash on opening night! (I’ll make a separate post on this!)

firsts of the trip:

what I wore:

I am OBSESSED with this Target dress. I have been wearing it nonstop & immediately bought it in two other colors! (see pink dress below!) It is the perfect A-line dress that shows off the bump without being super tight!!

*sadly, I bought the shirt from Etsy last year & the seller no longer has a shop open!

I have worn this dress with a shirt over it on a couple’s trip to disneyland the year before. I really love it cause it is longer & easily wearable!

Then this is what I wore for Oogie Boogie Bash! We are going to dress up in October when we come with the kids, but you already know I can’t resist a themed outfit!! 🙂

double exposure of the trip:

This is one of my favorite double exposures I have shot! The best part is, this was the first & ONLY of the trip! I love that it captures the Fall/Halloween magic of Disney along with the prettiest sunflowers on Main Street. I can’t wait to frame it soon!

Tips for doing Disneyland while pregnant:

Also, in case it wasn’t obvious, this trip was done while I was 28 weeks pregnant with my third! I took a spontaneous trip with Chad when I was 32 weeks with my first pregnancy, but that was my only other experience being pregnant at a Disney park. Here is how I survived 🙂

Most importantly, realize this trip is gonna look different. But, that’s the fun of it! You get to have the excitement of going while pregnant. There are a lot of fun moments and magic to still be had!!

Until next time,
