Insulin pump and WDW rides

The insulin pump company has told use not to wear or bring the pump on rides especially rides with magnets and rides that go 12-14 ft high. What rides at WDW should we avoid? Help. Any other options/suggestions how can we ride the rides together??

we don't generally remove the pump for any rides at Disney. Some will disconnect for rock n roller coaster but it's never been an issue for us. That and the People Mover really are the only rides which use magnets. But neither are strong enough to cause any trouble.

Here's a post from a long time ago here:

Here are some thread on the topic from CWD:

That's a hard one to answer. I can't remember all the rides that use magnetic stops but there are a few.

What do the mean by heights exactly? I only ask because Splash goes higher but isn't suspended until the very end and what about Soarin which is high but not shaky or fast it is akin to flying in a plane. I just wonder do they mean suspended like a coated 12 to 14 ft?

I've never once heard the 12-14 feet. That seems random. Again, there's really no reason to remove pumps at WDW. Maybe at other amusement parks there might be rides which you'd worry about - perhaps ones that have huge amounts of centrifugal force, like the ones where you stand and he bottoms drop out and you're pinned to the wall. But the magnetic forces at disney are confined. See the link I posted above to a post from Robo where he explains the various magnets in use.
