Need help -- in WDW now!

Hi fellow November Disers!

I am in WDW right now and want your opinions on 2 matters.

After dinner my 5yo got very tired, felt very hot, and complained of a headache and ear pain. It seems like she's coming down with an ear infection.

I gave her Tylenol and have some OTC meds but don't know what to do with her if she worsens tomorrow. Have your little ones ever needed to see a doctor in WDW and where do you go?

My second issue, and of less concern, is that we have an ADR at CG tomorrow night. I know we get charged $50 if we don't show. Would you cancel the ADR tonight? If I keep the ADR and she's not up to going, could 3 of us still go and would we be charged $10/pp for the 2 that didn't come?

Thanks for the input and hope you are all getting ready for your trips.

Only 1 person from the party has to show up to avoid the cancellation charge. They just need to explain that there are members of the party that are ill and will not be dining.

I know someone who has used DOCS, they came right to the room. 407-399-3627.

I know I have read that if some of the party shows there is no fee, but I don't have first hand experience. Sorry your little one is sick

So sorry about your child! Is this a recurring problem? If not, most ear infections do not require antibiotics, so if the Tylenol is helping, that might help your decision. Otherwise they may give an ear drop that helps with the pain.
Hope whatever she has clears up in the morning and you don't have to worry about it!

Paramus NJ Mall

Dear DISers in Paramus NJ area. I hope all is well with you tonight.
I just saw on the news there is a shooting at the Mall.
I truly hope no one is out doing last minute November trip shopping.

hugs!!!

Sorry Coconuts, hope your little one is on the mend quick. I never give antibiotics for ear infections, so to be honest I probably wouldn't take her to the doctor's office at all. I would give tylenol or advil for the pain and lots of liquids and rest. If the weather is nice down there and she felt up for it tomorrow I'd even let her go to the park for a little bit as long as I had a stroller so she could take it easy. I hope she bounces back fast.

If she doesn't I saw a few places mentioned on the boards about nearby clinics that Disney will help you get to, you can ask the concierge for suggestions, I'm sure they get asked all the time.

As long as some of you show up for the reservation you won't be charged.

Oh no, that is one of the busiest malls in the country. I'm glad it wasn't a weekend night, it is packed to capacity then.

The news has to stop concentrating on the shooters, they should refer to all shooters as Moron 1 and Moron 2 instead of their names, this way when some idiot decides his life sucks he doesn't decide to go out and commit suicide by cop and taking a bunch of people with him so he can be remembered forever.

Hi Coconts

So sorry your little girl is not feeling well. On our last trip my DD got a stomach bug and was up all night. We had a ADR at Ohanas the next day and were hoping she'd feel better to make it so we didn"t cancel.

When she wasn't any better we called to cancel only a few hours before but explained her illness and they waived the cancellation fee.

Please keep us posted

We were vacillating between Nov/Dec too. I wanted to free dining so I was going to try the middle of December, but I felt that being away from home so close to the holidays would put too much pressure on us to complete everything. I wanted to go as close to Thanksgiving as possible for the best chance at seeing the Christmas decorations while still avoiding the crowds and getting free dining.

I think we will go with December if there is a next time, but we will take the room discount (or rent points) instead of free dining.
We use to go religiously the day after thanksgiving for. A Week. We saw every Christmas thing in every resort . The past 3 trips we switched to early nov to try to have some pool weather and still get many Xmas things in. Just missin that gingerbread house though Itseems that's set up later . But like his new date better w get more pool time . Omg 3 days. Woohoo

It would be $50 or $10/pp since there is 5 of us. DD is allergic to Penicillin but wow, how do you get amoxicillin for whenever you travel? You must have a very liberal pediatrician. Our docs hardly ever give out antibiotics, like they are gold, and also feel ear infections should run their course. Sometimes they will give us a prescription but not always.

I was on the phone to cancel but my other 2 kids now really want to go to see the fireworks so I kept the ADR. I hope we don't get charged the fee if some of us do show up.

She had slept all night so far and everyone is still sleeping. I am the only one that has tossed and turned all night worrying!

Thanks for all of the input!
