Be careful of "Stroller Management"

Pammers sent this note:

"NEVER leave supplies in the stroller. I placed our small cooler with all of Joey's things in our stroller in a nice shady place (i couldn't bring it on this particular ride). While we were away, some well meaning Disney attendant moved it into full sun and everything inside (including the insulin) cooked. Thank goodness I only live an hour and a half away and we could just go home to give him his next dose.

Moral of the story: never leave your supplies - NEVER."

Good point. Disney does do what we call "stroller management." It is a kind of stroller round up process that keeps the strollers corralled up in one space. Your stroller will move. So Pammers is very right you may want to carry your insulin or get a real good cooler with a lot of cool in it that can take the hot Florida sun.

If you can't take your cooler on a particular ride tell the Disney Cast Member what it is and ask them for help. Most of the Cast are great about helping out.

Thanks for that tip!

Disney Dietary Needs Request form

Here is a link to the Disney Dietary Needs request form. Spring 2006 version as a word document.
FreeStyle Navigator™ Continuous Glucose Monitoring System

This look like just about the coolest diabetes management tool ever. Have a look and ask your endo team about it. Ours says they expect Abbott out over the summer and will have more visit at our next quarterly check up.

Here's some links for now:
Bad News: Booby is no longer at WCC

Bobby the Kid has ridden of into the sunset. Whispering Canyon Cafe will never be the same and I see little reason to go back. Bummer.

Bobby was the best show at WDW.

We will track him down and report where we find him.

Cool story. I can't believe a beagle can be taught anything, we have two, so far they have learned where the food dish is but it may just be they look everywhere for snacks and periodically end up at the food dish.

I wonder how WDW deals with his diabetes.
I wonder if they have better luck getting carb counts?
