Dining with Diabetes in Disney World

When making your Advance Dining Reservations, be sure to note that you are diabetic.

Helpful tips:

Bring a carb count guide book with you.

Pack 2-3 times the amount of supplies as needed, then pack them in two separate bags and put your name and cell phone number on everything.

Moderate and Deluxe resorts have small fridges in the hotel rooms. At a value resort, request a refrigerator and tell them that you need it for medical supplies. Medically necessary fridge rentals are complimentary.

Sugar-Free Treats

For guests that must restrict their sugar intake, you too can enjoy delectable treats in WDW!

Sugar Free items are clearly marked at buffets as well as on menus. Even the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party clearly marks their sugar-free items so that guests can make informed choices. However by noting your dietary restrictions when making your Advance Dining Reservation, you’ll give the restaurant time to create a fabulous dessert for you. For instance, the Yachtsman Steakhouse has been known to serve a delicious, sugar-free chocolate cake.

For snacks, Minnie’s Bake Shop Sugar Free cookies are sold in 7.2 oz packages.
