Insurance said we are covered. It's all good that way.
I'm glad I've had a place to come and vent and share.
I knew people here could guide me. I've helped a stranded family from the dis who had a purse stolen, no Id, and boarding a cruise to Alaska in 2 days. I got them a hotel room and drove them around to get what they needed. This was nearly 2 years ago now. It's a great community. I never expected to be "adopted" by stitchandangel, but am so truly thankful to him for his help and support. Also all of you just letting me know I have people to talk to. 5000 miles from home with my daughter so ill that by the time 911 arrived she was barely responsive and eyes rolling back in her head is pretty damn scary! We have decided to take a very slow day looking around Dtd and maybe go see a movie at amc, as that doesn't require any energy

Did you have any problems renting a scooter for her? Our 16-yr-old (healthy!) grand dtr wants to rent one for Disneyland next month so she can keep up with her old grand parents who will both be driving scooters. I want to tell her that she has to be 18, which is the normal minimum age, and I hope she can't get around it.

I didn't even say her age. Just ordered it. Never occurred to me. I used apple as they are allowed to leave with bell services and many others are not.

I did find out insurance will only cover 3 nights for trip interruption. No big deal, but just info for others out there who may land in this situation. This is what visa is for lol lol.

Don't do it. You may be taking away one from someone who truly needs it.

Sorry about your plight

I just wanted to share our experience that happened last fall. It was to be our first time on the Dream (4 days Bahamas). We had just spent several awesome days at WDW parks and we stayed at the POP Century.

The night before the cruise, we ate at the POP Century food court. My son specifically had the fried chicken and I had pizza. He was fine until about six am the morning of the cruise. He was vomiting and had diarreah. I was freaking out but so very worried about my child's health. I immediately called my insurance company (ALLIANZ), and DCL.

As my son's conditioned wasn't looking good, he was lethargic and sleepy and was still vomitting intermittently. He could barely get out of bed. I made the decision to fly back home and re-do the cruise when he was better. We don't have a lot of money, but like you, I also saved for a long time for the cruise, but I just wanted my son to get well. What's the use of getting on the ship and your child is sick?

DLC came to the POP and asked us both questions about how my son's suddenly became so sick. DCL personnel decided that we should be placed on private car and ride to Port Canaveral. Once at at the port, my son was assesed by the ship's medical team and we were denied boarding. I was ok with this, because I just wanted to return home at get my child better - and he agreed as well.

Because of the insurance that I purchased with my Disney Cruise, we were given a cruise credit to cruise whenever and wherever Disney sailed to. DCL picked up the taxi cab back to MCO and picked up the hotel tab for our overnight stay at the Hyatt MCO (Great Hotel!!!).

However, I did have to pay out of my own pocket extra money ($500) to purchase new returning flight tickets for us both.

In the end, Allianz reimbursed me for the $500. In two months, we set sail on the Dream. The only costs that I had to include for our I will however look into purchasing extended travel insurance or just see how much more it covers us in such a situation like we had last September.

I sure wish you and your child all the best and that you both get to sail on your Disney cruise very soon. ~redenvelope

Scooter rentals are for whoever wants to use them. It is not solely a handicap service.

Agreed. Most of the time, they don't appear to be in short supply. There are maybe a dozen non-Disney companies willing to rent them out. I imagine that they might be hard to come by during the week after Christmas, but the rest of the time I doubt anyone would be deprived.

Grandparents will be renting off-site, leaving the more-expensive klunkers in the parks for anyone who wants them. We just don't want our able-bodied grand daughter to waste her money (and get nasty looks from people who are already anti-scooter.)

Lets get back on topic please, this isn't a scooter thread it is a thread about a DISer that had a sick child and what happened from there.

I am so happy your daughter is feeling better and thank you for showing us how Disney can handle a situation like this. I hope she continues to improve and can head to the parks later this wee.

You do not have to take the child to port to get insurance denied. File a claim and let them deny you. Then you will have a credit for a future cruise. If she is very sick and she has a virus that could be communicated to others you are correct in not taking her on the cruise. And I think you were misunderstanding what a pre-existing condition is. I think the condition has to exist prior to your purchasing the insurance policy. Depends on the policy itself though.

This won't help you with airfare as you apparently have a policy that does not cover airfare. But at least you have some recourse with the insurance you have.

Not sure why the child couldn't be taken to a hospital. They'll get an ambulance. I had to have one once.

heck it appears there are 2 separate mothers with very sick children at WDW on this thread. Or someone using two separate screennames. and if there are two children, one is sixteen.

I'm sooo glad your daughter is feeling better and praying she is able to enjoy the last few days of her vacation. It brings tears to my eyes thinking about the Diser that helped you out
