I am a huge water drinker so I often times will order water at a restaurant. We ate at a dinner before we left for the vacation (I am from Ontario, Canada but we always fly out of Syracuse, NY because we live so close to the border). My mom had ate there before with some relatives and really enjoyed it so we stopped in. I ordered a glass of water, took a sip, and it was absolutely horrible. My mom tried a sip and suggested I get something else to drink.

When I requested Sprite or 7-Up (the only soda I will actually drink is a lemon based soda (even Sierra Mist), they were all out of those (something to do with their soda fountain or something) and only had Pepsi and Diet Pepsi left (which I hate both). Fortunately, I had a bottled water in my car with me that I brought in and drank from that.

The water was horrible... they should have been able to offer more than Pepsi and Diet Pepsi though or they should have had bottled water for customers.

So how long is this lasting for people?
I think I am getting better - but feeling a little dizzy today

I started with this Sunday morning and just thought it was a reaction to the food at la Hacienda the night before

I had eaten at La Hacienda the week before and had the same issue the following day and had thought it was just a reaction to the extra spicy sauce I had requested

This time though it has been several days so I think the La hacienda thing is just coincidental

Mine lasted about 2 days. I had nausea within 3 hours the first day. The second day, I just was very weak and tired, had a loss of appetite and still had some nausea, and had diarrhea (yellowish color) so I stayed in and rested the entire day. By the third day, I was feeling much better.

My body was just very weak on the second day. I couldn't even throw a pillow off the bed without getting tired.

Ok thanks - I did not have the weakness or the need to rest so much- but I suspect I have had it for several more days do to the long flight home with no sleep and going to work at 5:30 every day this week

Hopefully it is almost over and the rest of my family does not get it

This year, we decided (after becoming APH) to visit in October/November which means we visited the Food & Wine Festival a couple of times. The first, my mom used a snack credit for the baklava and really enjoyed it.

Last night, I bought the Lamb Chop (from Australia) (she charged me instead of using a snack credit). It was good but very rare (which I am not used to). Some of it was more cooked than other parts and one part was so rare it was almost dripping with blood. It was alright and I actually didn't like the mint pesto and potato crunchies topping. After a couple of hours, I ate some of the ravioli from Italy (which was fantastic) but couldn't finish it because I started to get really full. After about 3-4 hours (around the time Illuminations began), I started feeling nauseous to the point I had to keep putting my head down and missed some of the fireworks. I also had a fever

It has been almost 24 hours and thankfully the nausea has subsided (not by a lot though) and there was no vomiting at all. However, I have had diarrhea which was a very pale yellow colour (sorry for the kind of gross info).

My mom came back to the room a few minutes ago and said she talked to a woman who's daughter was also sick (from eating a salad) and had to go to the hospital.

I have a feeling it was the lamb that got me sick but you never know.

The worst part is we are leaving tomorrow. I hate being sick in bed while on vacation
Well, we are here right now and my son got violently ill last night. He was fine and all of a sudden he started vomiting and had diahrea for about 6 hours straight. Thank goodness he slept all night and he woke up as good as new.

I was perusing the Disney Food Blog website and was viewing the Food and Wine menus and photos. I came across one someone took of the grilled lamb chop and it looks way more cooked than mine did. It looks like it is possibly medium or maybe rare while mine was bordering on raw.

Also, the lamb had absolutely no flavour whatsover. I had to add salt and pepper to it to even get any taste from it.

Like I said, I got symptoms around 3 hours after consuming the lamb (the people in my party said they would have returned it (after I ate it of course)) which included nausea, diarrhea, and weakness. It lasted for just over 24 hours and I was fine after that.

Ask your doctor for a perscription for Cipro before you leave on a trip. It will clear up most food related baterial infections. Now with a virus...you are out of luck. It helped me when came back from Cancun this year. And I didn't drink the water. Glad I had it with plenty of Pepto!

I'm a preschool teacher. I was exposed to a stomach virus because so many of my students were sick. Guess what? Wouldn't you know I get the virus on the way down to Disney, and spent the first 3 days sick.

Glad we are not the only ones to get this. I started on Monday and had it through Wednesday. not getting sick anymore but don't feel 100% yet and don't have all of my energy back yet. Wasn't sure if it was a virus or just a reaction to the food but my son came down with it tonight... So virus it is

Literally just got home from our trip. We had to pull over twice for my oldest son to vomit. He started feeling queasy right before we boarded the airplane. I first assumed all of our yummy treats and meals from the week just caught up with him. Now I am worried he has a virus. Guess only time will tell if the rest of us start with it. So far the rest of us feel fine (fingers crossed it stays that way).

We wash our hands frequently and take reasonable steps to avoid touching things that other people may have touched since a lot of viruses are transmitted that way. It is a little distressing but out in public it does help to treat every handle, knob, button and even doors as something that could be contaminated.

Yes, I wash my hands quite frequently as well, considering how many germs get passed around, people don't wash their hands after going to the restroom, etc. I also carry hand sanitizer around with me when I am unable to wash my hands.
