We used the pass a few years ago and I'm not sure if they still offer it. When we went, we got the pass at City Hall in Disneyland. We did not need to show anything,you can always show all your equipment you have with you! At California Adventure we got the pass as soon as you walk in on the left is a customer service center. The pass allowed us to go to the head of any ride line- a definite plus in the summer! As far as any advice I STRONGLY suggest keeping hydrated! Even when you think they are-keep drinking.We learned the hard way when my son Scott who is on the pump, wound up with keto acidosis due to dehydration. He had been dialing insulin in for the highs but it was not working. We have since found out that when a diabetic is dehydrated, as soon as insulin is delivered-it basically evaporates!
you need to use a needle to go deeper to get the insulin delivered.
I'm not sure if your daughter has the pump or not. If she has the pump make sure you also bring a Novopen or needles with you as backup.We travel a lot and we always bring a pen and needles JUST IN CASE. You should also keep the insulin in a small cooler with a cold pak and take this with you. Bring snaks and your own food if you want-its cheaper and easier to carb count too.They don't like people bringing food in( loss of revenue) but when you explain its a medical need-its fine.
Enjoy the day, make sure she has a medical braclet or some other ID on her-just in case.Bathrooms are clean and testing should not be a problem. Disneyland has made some improvements as far a food choices go too-they have some healthy choices now.One thing that always bothers me though is that it's more expensive to buy WATER than SODA! Freeze some bottles the night before and bring your own and refill from the water fountain. Just my personal opinion!
Have a great time, don't let the diabetes overshadow your day-its just a part of it... your daughter will have a great time and you will both learn that it's managable and you can have fun!
