    Can I get a microwave in my room I am traveling with a diabetic.

    Hi Balinda,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I think it’s super smart that you are planning for medical needs while on vacation. That way, everyone can be assured of a magical vacation.

    Microwaves are available on request at all Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. They are on a first-come, first-served basis, so please call Hotel Reservations to request one. Please note, a request is just that, a request, so the microwave is not guaranteed.

    One way to guarantee a microwave in your room is by booking one of the Family Suites at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort or Disney’s All-Star Music Resort. Both of these Suites have a refrigerator, coffee service, and microwave in the room. Also, all of the 1-Bedroom or larger Disney Vacation Club Villas will have microwaves in the full kitchen.

    If you need to carry medication or insulin with you in the Parks, feel free to bring a small cooler with you. Loose ice is not allowed in the Parks, so make sure to bring freezer packs. If you don’t think the refrigerator in your room will keep the ice packs cold enough, touch base with your Lobby Concierge or Hotel Front Desk. As the ice packs are a medical necessity, they will be more than happy to help you freeze them.

    Last but not least, if you need to store medication in the Parks, or require medical assistance, please visit the First Aid Centers. The friendly and knowledgeable Cast Members will happily assist you. You can find the clinics with the help of your My Disney Experience app.

    Balinda, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. I hope your trip is just what the doctor ordered!
