Switching from pump to injection for the day?

I am going to the amusement park. How do you switch from the pump to injections (humalong/ lantus)  for the day then switch back??

I switch back and forth from pump to shots all the time and it's never a big deal. Just use your lantus rates from before you started pumping first thing in the morning to cover you that day and disconnect your pump. Then during the day you can use the same bolus doses you normally do. Just be careful putting your pump back on that night since you could still have some lantus in your system. or you could always take enough lantus for 24 hours and wait till the next morning to reconnect if your worried about lows overnight.

you can just go from one to the other.
