Me and the hubby (jungleVIP) are disney addicts! We only make it to the park a couple of times a year, but we take it by storm when we do get to go. I also have a blog about doing Disneyland on a budget: themagicisfree.wordpress.com

I know they're not there very often, but I will stand in line all day to see the Tremaines. They crack me up. And make me feel better about my singing/dancing skills. Also love some Bert and Mary though.Β

I was diagnosed at four. If they haven't already, his parents should talk to his doctor about an insulin pump. But that's a whooole other topic. With him being so young, he may or may not be on a ratio insulin regimen. If he's not, talk to the dr before the trip and see if they can give him a rate for correcting for carbs/blood sugars. This way he doesn't haven't to be the only one not eating a churro. Myfitnesspal.com has nutrition info including carb counts for lots of the items found at Disneyland, and a quick google search will usually find the rest. Also keep in mind that there are lots of low/non-carb goodies at dl: pickles, bacon-wrapped asparagus and turkey legs are a few of my favorites. Make sure you take a glucagon kit. All that walking can do a number on blood sugars! Hopefully you won't need to use it, but if you do, it might be a good idea to head to first aid afterwards since they can cause nausea for up to an hour after. Remember that first aid will store anything (like insulin) that needs to be kept cold, though honestly most brands are fine for 24-48 hours without refrigeration. If he's going to be with a large group of kids, I'd say that for me the biggest thing at this age is to make sure he still feels like a normal kid. A little tact and sneakiness goes a long way!Finally, especially if you're going for multiple days, remember that the preparedness needs to extend past the park. Almost every trip, I have a low blood sugar in the middle of the night, so I keep apple juice and fruit snacks right next to my bed. And I always make sure I have my insurance cards and doctors phone numbers, just in case. I'm sorry for the super long post...but I know how lonely this disease can feel. People lump it together with type 2 but it's entirely different! So please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any other questions.  - LittleAprilShowers  562.8 #339 2:08PM

My daughter is 22 now but was 9 at dx.... I just wanted to add childrenwithdiabetes.com is a community with a wealth of lnowledge.... My daughter is on a pump but in the early days of multiple daily injections we just had to learn how her body handled the day. Many times we weren't prepared that a thrill ride would drop her sugar and I would run to a Coke cart to get a soda. Having plenty of "free food" with you will be good as well as what you plan to use for lows.  - HalfCaff  438.2 #464 2:20PM

I wish him the very best and my heart goes out to him for sure! One of my best friends and college roommates was diagnosed when we were 10 and her little boy when he was 4. I know it's so difficult but definitely possible to manage while at the parks and you've received some wonderful advice here.Β  - MinnieMousewife  892.2 #187 2:31PM

I just want to ride white horses down Main Street hand in hand with John Stamos while "The Way You Look Tonight" plays softly in the background and the light from the fireworks perfectly highlights my eyelashes and cheekbones. No biggie. 

Just to be there, with my family and friends, spending the day and night laughing, having a great time, and making lots of memories. I'm a no frills sort of gal, so it's the simple pleasures that make my heart sing. - DarthTinkerbell  452.8 #453 10:49AM

I have absolutely nothing to back up my theory...but here it is anyway: the last major renovation to the attic took place in 2006, when the bride was pictured in portraits with five husbands whose heads disappeared. This year, they are adding the hatbox ghost. I think this is her sixth husband, therefore 6 husbands is greater than the '06 version. Mwaahaahahh!

Thank you for both!

I just bumped a post for you but it didn't say anything about WOC or fireworks. I believe they both start back May 15 but I wouldn't be surprised if they wait until the 22nd since they will both be new shows, I don't see them showing the old shows for 1 week & I doubt they will show the new ones 1 week early - UTDISNEYFAMILY  1636.9 #96 9:30AM
mist likely yes WOC will be dark. Maybe not the fireworks though I've heard the one they have for the interim is kind of lackluster @IDVandalSkipperCM or another CM may be able to better answer. Also, who doesn't love Carmel!!!! Lol - missariel33  2113.5 #66 9:33AM
Thank you for both! - LittleAprilShowers  562.8 #339 10:03AM
we are going the last week of Feb-the way I see it, its a trade off. Ive come to terms with the fact that WOC, critter country and some of my favorite rides will be closed for refurb. I was especially sad to see the castle will be under tarps :( HOWEVER...Im really looking forward to the lower crowds! I would much rather have fewer attractions, but ones that I can actually see and enjoy without masses of people clogging every nook and cranny! ;) But I honestly can't imagine a "bad" day at the parks-so Id go whenever you can! - KangaRoo  127.9 #2993 10:09AM
