What To Do If You Get Sick On Vacation

Nobody wants to get sick or hurt while on vacation but you can rest assured that there is a first aid center located in all of the Disney theme parks (and water parks) just in case you need them. The biggest first aid center is located at the Magic Kingdom behind the Crystal Palace. They are able to treat minor problems such as scrapes, headaches, twisted ankles, etc. They can also store medicine that requires refrigeration for guests. There are trained nurses available during normal park hours. They can provide over the counter medicines but not prescriptions.

If you have a more serious problem then you should get to the hospital. The closest hospital to Disney World is the Celebration Health Hospital located just about 15 minutes away. Their phone number is (407) 303-4000. If you don't want to go to the hospital then you can always go to Buena Vista Urgent Care open Monday thru Friday 8 am until 7 pm and Saturdays  and Sundays 8 am until 3 pm. No appointments are needed and they accept most insurances.

Don't forget to pack the following items for your vacation:
  • thermometer
  • band aids
  • children's Tylenol
  • Benadryl
  • bug spray
It's always best to be prepared even if it means over packing :) I also pack an extra set of earrings for my daughter in case she looses one on a ride.
