    Going to Disney in two weeks. I wanted to know my son is a diabetic and he needs to carry his supplies on him at all times (while in long lines etc) Will this be a problem and will we need to do anything special?

    Hi Michelle,

    No worries. Hundreds of diabetic children and adults visit the Disney parks every day. They're well versed in handling the needs of these guests.

    When you enter the park, you will go through a bag screening. It can be helpful to point out any sharps in your bag to the security guard. You will be allowed to enter with medical supplies, but the guard may want to see them.

    If you have anything that needs refrigeration, you can use the cooling facilities at the First Aid center. There is one at each park staffed by nurses. They also have sharps containers there.

    i hope you and your son have a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation. Please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help.
