So i heard a rumor. I heard that if you are diabetic they move you to the front of the line so you dont stand in a long line. Is this true? If so how do you go about proving that you are diabetic?

This is not true, the ONLY people I know of that get a front of the line pass are the special cases such as Make a Wish kids, there is no 'normal' illness or disability that rates 'front of the line'.

You will then use the handicap access. This is not a "front of the line" pass either. You wait in a different queue, which may be shaded or provide a place to sit while waiting, and sometimes the wait is longer than the regular queue.

A good friend of mine is a Type I diabetic classified a "Brittle" diabetic. He has never needed to use the Guest Assistance at the park.

And here I saw the topic of the thread and I expected this to be a question about eating or storing insulin.

Same here. I can't imagine why simply being diabetic would give someone front-of-the-line access.


But I'm giggling that AdK was so tired, she couldn't even spell her own name!

I was testing to see if you were paying attention. Ok. I wasn't. I couldn't see the screen because I was doing something else with my eyes.

The normal and official response for any stamina/mobility issue is the suggestion that a wheelchair or ECV be rented.

For any invisible disablity a Guest Assistance Card may be issued based on the needs (not diagnoses) of the individual. The GAC Specifically states on it that it is not intended to bypass any line.

And as mentioned above, only fragile or terminal children on a trip from Make-A-Wish or similar organization will get a FOTL pass.

My wife has been diabetic 37 years. If anyone wishes information on caring for sugar levels in the parks, I would be happy to share what we know.
