There is a shuttle the resorts use that will pick you up. Call the front desk at the resort.

So sad for you guys. How old is your daughter?

It's such a bummer how these things happen sometimes. It makes you wonder, why now???

The flu caused a massive UTI as well and she had iv antibiotics. They figure by Monday she will be back to herself. Disney is taking care of us. Put us in akl club level so she can get better and I have easy access to some food. Hoping by tues we can salvage and go take slow days at the parks.
Oh I'm so, so happy to hear how she's doing! Thank goodness you listened to your gut...and not some of the foolish "medical" advice others gave, as an RN, MSN I can tell you A MOTHER KNOWS HER CHILD BEST!!! Love and prayers to you and your daughter

too many WDW trips to mention, 2007 Wonder Concierge, January 2013 Wonder Concierge, March 2014 Walter E. Disney Suite (finally!!!!)

Van should be here any minute I think. I haven't eaten all day. I'm starving and need bed. This is not a good day. Can only get better right? It's prez weekend and I'm praying we can even get a room. Hospital bill $6000. I had to pay $1400 up front. Insurance reimburses. Let this be a lesson. Always keep a $5000 EMPTY card or have that cash available when traveling. My refund won't be instant, but I have enough savings to cover a week at akl with dink g and tix if she gets better, plus the med bill.

The important thing is that your daughter got the help she needed and will be okay - what a scary experience - I'm sure it's been nerve wracking!!

I hope she continues to feel better and you can enjoy a few days at WDW.

Big hugs to you and your dd Momma! We just went through something similar. We arrived at Disney on Sunday with the intention of doing a "land and sea" vacation. 4 nights at Coronado Springs, 3 nights on the Dream, sailing Thursday.

Tuesday we went to bed only to have our son wake up at 2:30 am vomiting everywhere. The rest of the story is similar to yours, vomiting diarrhea, high fever, stomach pain. He felt better then it came back with a vengeance. Our son is also a Type 1 Diabetic so for him not to be able to keep anything down is super scarey. He needs to eat to take his insulin injections to keep keatones (acids) from building up in his blood, but he needs to ingest sugars to balance the insulin. Not fun. We are also Canadian so very unfamiliar with how the American medical system works(other than you have to actually pay for health services there).

At any rate, we had to cancel our cruise, change our flights and we got him home safely....but what a long frightening few days it was! He is still ill (as is his older brother now), but they are now able to keep fluids down

I just wanted to let you know you are not alone....you absolutely did do the right thing not dragging your poor sick dd to port......I totally understand feeling scared, stranded and helpless because we just went through the same thing. Good luck to you and your sweet dd. I hope she (and you) are feeling better real soon

Van still not here. Left an hour ago. My poor kiddo is weak, sick and tired and crying. I'm about ready to have a panic attack from exhaustion.
