    Dear Moms, I unfortunately have leukemia and have to take several pills with meals and things. We are eating at some wonderful places while in the parks and I was wondering what the rules and restrictions are with bringing medicine into the park.

    Hi, Alecia!  There really are no restrictions with regard to travel in and out of the Walt Disney World theme parks when it comes to your medicine.  I have traveled with my own medicine in it's original pill bottle, but I have also traveled with my dad, who was at one point after his kidney transplant taking more than two dozen pills daily.  He kept his pills sorted into a pill box that he carried with us into the theme parks.

    If you have medicine that needs to be stored in a refrigerator, that should be labeled with the original label, indicating your name and the name of the medicine and prescribing doctor.  You can then store it at the First Aid Stations located in each park until you need it.

    If you are traveling by airplane, it really works best to have everything in original pharmacy bottles.  Bring a pill box with you and sort the medications once you arrive at your resort.

    Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you!  I hope your vacation is well sprinkled with pixie dust and filled with a pirate ship full of magical memories!
