    Hi, Anna. We plan to visit Blizzard Beach. My DD 6 uses an insulin pump. We will need to check her BG frequently. What is your suggestion for where to keep her monitor while we are in the water so much? Lockers too far away? Are lounge chairs safe?

    Hi, Rebecca!  I have only been to Blizzard Beach twice, and both times, I've kept my blood glucose meter in my bag.  It's not a terrible inconvenience to go to the lockers - they aren't that far from anyplace you might be, just a few minutes walk.  Mine was always in my bag, covered by t-shirts or bathing suit cover-ups, because when I'm at Walt Disney World, I always tested more often.  My sugars always ran normal to low, and I often had to make adjustments in my insulin.  I didn't want to be without my monitor in case I felt a low sugar coming on.

    I would feel fairly comfortable keeping it at your lounge chair with your things.  They say not to leave things of value unattended, but it was important to me to keep it with me.

    Have a wonderful vacation, and thank you for your question!
