    My daughter is a type 1 diabetic and has an insulin pump. She will have to disconnect her pump while on some rides, as it will malfunction if it is on rollercoasters. Any thoughts about where we could leave it for those few minutes on the coaster?

    Hi, Laurie!  The best place for you to store your daughter's insulin pump is going to be at the first aid station in the theme park.  I've traveled with friends who use the pump, and generally what we do to save some time and some leg work is we drop the pump off at the First Aid Station, then do a spin through the attractions like Space Mountain, Splash Mountain, and Big Thunder Mountain.  When we have hit all of the rides that may affect the function of the pump, we go back and pick it up.

    There are not lockers or anything similar located outside of each ride that would better be able to accommodate this situation.  Your best bet really is going to be the First Aid station, so you can rest assured that the pump will be in a safe location.

    I hope that helps with your planning!  Have a wonderful vacation!
