    Planning a surprise trip in dec 2010. daughter is type 1 diabetic (she must take insulin daily). Would be helpful to have a carbohydrate list of foods available at RIverside hotel and parks.

    Hi Andrea! I can't think of a better surprise than a trip to Disney World! 

    I recommend that you contact Disney's Special Diets department about your daughter's dietary needs. You can reach them by telephone at  407-824-5967 or by email at This department is dedicated to assisting guests with special dietary requirements and can help you get the information you need. Many restaurants at Disney provide sugar-free items -- the Special Diets department can provide you with a list of such items and the restaurants where you'll find them.  They can also assist you with notifying the table-service restaurants of your daughter's dietary requirements so that the chefs can prepare meals to accommodate her.

    You might also want to check out the unofficial website, which has a page with lots of information on visiting Disney with diabetes.

    Hope this helps! Feel free to visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions!
