Type 1 diabetes and Disney World???

We are planning a family trip to Disney World in Florida and we would love some advice from anyone that has been recently with a child who has Type 1.  Our oldest son Jackson will be 8 years old.  We are excited and nervous about the trip.  Jackson just started on the Animus Pump.  We will be arranging to take a spare pump with us.  Obviously an over abundance of supplies as well.  However, if anyone can share their experiences or advice it would be greatly appreciated.See More
