Hello all! Just wanted to warn everyone about Disney World's "Policy Change" in reference to Type 1 Diabetics. Last week we went and as in the past, went to the Guest Services to get the pass that is given to those with Disabilities. Well to our surprise we were informed that the American Diabetes Association had given them the authorization to no longer give passes to people with Type 1 Diabetics and to just "provide shade" when possible. First of all, as I told them, the ADA is primarily a group which caters to Type 2 Diabetics which we all know is a totally different disease. I also asked them why they were discriminating against kids with Type 1 Diabetes when it is recognized as a disability by the government. Needless to say I was very upset, not only about the policy change based on a group which does not represent our kids, but also at the treatment we received from the Disney employees. We were treated as if we were free-loaders or trying to get something our daughter did not need. It was insulting. Furthermore, they refused to let us see a manager. It was only as we were leaving the Magic Kingdom (in tears) that someone stopped us at the gate and got a manager to come to us. This man finally agreed to give us the pass (which was standard in our past trips to Disney) but told us that we needed to understand that we would not be able to get one in the future and should plan accordingly. I told him, that he obviously did not understand why we were upset, because without the pass we would not be able to plan a trip to an amusement park such as Disney World. Incidently a friend of ours went to Sea World and Universal Studios last week and said they were given a pass at both with no problems. So I say, plan your trips to those parks and not Disney World until they fix this. Let's get the word out and fight this ridiculous move by the ADA!!!
