Mom to DS(8), DS(6), DD(4), and DS(1). "Kids do as well as they can."
I spent a week at Disney World at 4 months pregnant and had a great time. There are plenty of rides there you can ride (and they do let you ride the milder ones, no problem), and there's plenty to see besides rides. I don't know how old your child is, but I also enjoyed watching my nephews (7 & 8) experience the magic of Disney, and my husband took them on the rides I couldn't enjoy, while I enjoyed resting in the shade or air-conditioning.
In addition to the risk of placental abruption, all your ligaments are loosening by then, and I was concerned that a bumpy ride could injure me as well as put the pregnancy at risk. I didn't want to throw my back out of whack and spend who knows how long in bed recovering!
At Disney, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios are great for a pregnant woman. They've got more shows and plenty of rides you can enjoy, plus lots to look at. Magic Kingdom has shows too, but seemed more about rides to me, even though not many of thim are big, roller-coaster type. The lazy rivers at the water parks were also fun, though there's not a lot else there to do while pregnant except find a shady spot and read.
I might risk it with an old 1920s roller coaster, but not the roller coasters of today. They pull way too many Gs to be safe. Sorry.
