Ibs - irritable bowel

Hi guys
Iím travelling to DLP in next few months and my cousin wants to join us.
She has IBS - itís actually really debilitating and really has a negative affect on her life.
She is seeing a consultant gastroenterologist about it and they are doing scans/tests.
The IBS is not officially diagnosed, all else needs to be ruled out apparently before he can diagnose.
She would struggle to wait in line - abdominal pain, cramps, wind, toilet urgency and the general anxiety it brings.
Would she be eligible for an easy access pass - does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing?
She claims no benefits, canít see how sheíd get an access card.
Is it worth asking the dr to write whatís happening?
She wonít come if she canít have the security of this which is so so sad I think as sheíd love to. So many things she misses out on because of this, itís awful gut a young girl.
What does everyone think, all advice so welcome please 🙏

Sorry but answer is nope. My advice is buscopan (or the like) and diarrohea tablets and plenty of water, staying away from known triggers. Both myself and DD1 have IBS and are lactose intolerant so know exactly what she is going through but we were told no by doctors and dlp when we enquired. We are both on mebeverine 3x daily and lactase tablets.

I would look at the access card requirements, does she access any disabled student support as this can be used as evidence. The access card give you a slot to come back and 'skip the queue', the wait times usually reduce significantly.

IBS is not technically viewed as a disability unlike crohn's & colitis/IBD, therefore getting benefits/national disability ID etc. I don't think she would qualify.

Hi - sorry to jump in on the thread - As you said you were lactose free i wondered if you knew how easy it was to get lactose free milk when at DLP? I am presuming probably not in the parks but maybe in the supermarket that is close by to the entrance? I do not like other milk alternatives so im hoping that somewhere may sell just regular lactose free milk - thanks

We got lactose free milk on our last trip from the Auchen supermarket which is one stop away from DLP by train. It is sold in multipack cartons with the UHT milk.

The upper hotels served lactose free milk so i avoided actuall milk and took lactase tablets when having desserts or creamy foods in other hotels. I have to plan my food during the day. The campanile actually served lactose free so enjoyed breakfast there. When holidaying in France i go to the supermarkets and buy it there, in Disney i don't bother.

I would try for the access card.
I have endometriosis and overactive bladder thatís apparently now a sensitive bladder.
The endo affects my bowels and my bladder is already screwed so I completely understand the not being able to wait in line. I canít and there is nothing worse then coming out of the queue to go then having to try and get back to your family. No one likes this they get very angry at ďqueue jumpingĒ I have this every time I am somewhere in a line, even at airports etc.
they did a camera to see if mine was ibs but isnít so they say itís still linked to the endo.
Anyway I donít claim benefits. I tried once years ago and unfortunately as I have good days and bad then I donít qualify.
But I did for an access card.
This then allowed the skip queues at DLP and will do when we go to universal which is a big help.
Just try it. Send all the medical stuff you have.

Thank you to all who responded.
I have passed this all on to my cousin.
We think she might try to get the access card as youíd suggested vampiress88.
Itís worth a try as itís make a huge difference in going or not 🤷
Can I ask what you mean by the access card - is this the one that is issued by uk not the Disney one. Iíll look into this for her too.
What evidence would you suggest, are there any tips you would be able to give - weíll obviously look into this too but just to gain your experience would be so helpful.

Just send them everything medical evidence wise. I like it cos then people donít give me as many dirty looks if I really have to use the disabled toilet.
