    How can I find the nutrition information for foods served at Disneyland and California Adventure? My daughter has type 1 diabetes and we need to know the carbohydrates count for everything she eats to dose her insulin. Thanks!

    Hi Erica! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    Many special dietary and allergy-friendly requests can be handled without advanced notice at Quick Service and Table Service dining locations throughout Disneyland Resort. You can always ask to speak with a Cast Member about your dietary needs and request nutritional information at any dining spot. However, if your daughter has a medically restrictive diet, you're encouraged to contact the Special Diets Team via e-mail. You're within the window to contact them for your upcoming visit, so go ahead and reach out as soon as possible. Just make sure you've made any of your dining reservations ahead of writing the team because they'll need to know your specific dining plans.

    Also, be aware that you can bring your own food and beverages into the park if that makes small meals or snacking easier. I used to pack snacks that were healthy and familiar when my children were really small, and it's not a problem going through security so long as you check the current park rules before visiting. For example, avoid anything in a glass container except for small vials of medicine and baby food. Also, there are size restrictions on coolers, and you can't use loose ice, so if you bring something that needs to be refrigerated, you'll want to use ice packs.

    Finally, locate First Aid on the Disneyland mobile app's map. We recently had to drop into First Aid in Disneyland Park on Main Street, U.S.A. when our son had an allergic reaction to a medication on a recent trip. The nurses were so kind. It's a clean, cool, and discrete spot, where your daughter might feel more comfortable taking her insulin and disposing of the medical supplies afterward. First Aid can also store medicine that requires refrigeration for Guests.

    I hope this helps!
