Advice for Travels to Disney World with a Sick Travel Partner

Spaceship EarthWhen vacationing in Disney, you expect to have days filled with fun, magic and whimsy.  However, if someone in your party gets sick, what are you to do? Instances where you are staying on Disney property and are using the Disney buses poses the most concern as you have no available transportation to get to a doctor, hospital or pharmacy.

So if you find that you are in Disney and have someone fall ill, here is where to begin:

  • Depending on the severity of the illness, you should visit the first aid station found within the theme parks or water parks available.  H.  ere you get a bit of small advise and medicines such as bandages and ibuprofen to help you get back on your way quickly.
  • If additional medications are needed, you may find the medicines on property in the resort gift shops.
  • If the additional medications are not available in the resort gift shops, consider calling a local pharmacy with delivery services.  One such pharmacy is Turner Drugs.  Here you will be able to get the medication needed delivered to your resort’s front desk.  Their contact information is as follows: 1530 Celebration Blvd, Celebration, FL, 407 828 8125.
  • Should the person in your party be so sick that the aid of a doctor is needed, you should consider setting up an appointment for the doctors at Centra Care Walk-In Urgent Care.  They are open from 8 am – midnight on weekdays and from 8 am – 8 pm on weekends.  The transportation to and from their facilities is free!  If you prefer a doctor to come to the resort, one can be seen at your resort room.
  • For serious emergencies, patients with serious trauma issues are transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center.  Non-trauma patients are taken to Celebration Hospital.  More can be read here from Reedy Creek Emergency Services.
