Why not using the new Publish Online feature and embed it via iframe in the WordPress site?
Thanks for this idea! I think this is going to be my best route to take.
I am desperately trying to do pretty much the same thing here. I have a very long interactive infographic that I have built in InDesign. I'm exporting an interactive PDF that works perfectly...rollover pop-ups, active links, buttons, etc. However, when I bring it into WordPress, all of the interactivity is lost, with the exception of the embedded hyperlinks. We purchased PDF Viewer for Wordpress, but even when I import that way, I'm still losing the interactivity. After reading this post, I tried publishing the INDD file online and tried inserting an iframe in Wordpress with the copied link. Now I'm getting an empty box, no PDF graphics at all, so obviously no working rollovers, etc.
What am I doing wrong? I've been at this all day long with no luck at all. A tech support person for our Wordpress site, said the problem was my naming convention on the buttons and bookmarks. So I went back and renamed things with no spaces, no special characters, and still nothing.
Can anyone offer help? I'm up against a deadline and losing it!

What you’re doing wrong is expecting anything other than Acrobat to properly render an interactive PDF.
There’s nothing magic about adding the PDF to a WordPress site. Just add it to the media and then post a link for your website viewers. After that. I’d recommend to them that they download it and view in Acrobat or Reader.
I'm not sure "responding" to one of your answers is the best way to reach you but, i'm having some concerns on AEM.
As gretchenb, i would like to create an interactive pdf (displaying downloadable images, text, and maybe videos) and upload it to my Wordpress site on a specific page.
Would AEM be a solution?
If you have a WordPress Website you need only AEM if you would like to replace WordPress with the Adobe CMS. Or if you would need AEM Mobile to make mobile Apps.
In my opinion the upload of an interactive PDF to a WordPress post isn't the best possibility. Why do you not upload your images and videos directly to WordPress? Or if you want to sell/manage them you could use WordPress plugins like Woo Commerce to manage the it.
And if you want to present InDesign layouts in WordPress, the easiest way – in my opinion – is to use “Publish Online” to upload the InDesign Layout as HTML and then youse the iframe code to embed this in a WordPress post/page.
