    My husband controls his type 2 diabetes through a strict diet and carb counting. I emailed special diets but was told nutritional info is not available ahead of time. We have qs only dining. How can we avoid hidden carbs and not waste park time searching?

    Hello Maggie and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. 
    I can totally relate to your very important question as my own dear husband is also a type 2 diabetic and although he takes Metformin medication for his condition, he does keep a close eye on diet to further assist his diabetes control. 
    You've certainly done the smart thing by checking out Special Dietary Requests prior to your magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort and also by contacting Cast Members via email.  
    One of my top tips is to be sure to have your husbands condition noted onto your Walt Disney World Resort hotel booking; this can be done by speaking to a helpful Cast Member by dialling the number for Non-Reservation Questions contained within this Walt  Disney World Resort Phone Directory.  Be sure to have close to hand your Disney booking reference numbers and so on. 
    Another tip to aid carb counting is to carry along with you a carbohydrate and calorie counter guide book; on a trip away from home we always find it handy to refer back to a guide when trying to make appropriate food choices. 
    Plus I also thought you may find this Disney Citizenship website to be a useful planning resource, it includes great pointers to Disney nutritional guidelines and additional information about Mickey Check food items. 
    Wishing both you and your dear husband a magical upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort where I'm quite sure you'll create together some unforgettable memories which are sure to last a lifetime. 
    Have a great Disney day.
