Add us to the list too. We just had the the stomach virus in November so I thought we would be safe! Wrong! Atleast we got it the day we were checking out. Also, the family in the room next door to us had it too. When I spoke to housekeeping they also said it is going around and that she knew of atleast 4 cases of the virus reported to them that day. We stayed at AKL. We just go back today. Most of us had it in the middle of the night. My 4 year old daughter threw up the whole way home.

Yes, that is my daughter when she was about 4ish....she is now 7 and just as cute. My husband is originally from Hong Kong and I am Caucasian and DD seems to have the best of both races!

Boy do I hope you're right! Both of my kids had this just a couple of weeks ago. We're going to Orlando 12/25-12/27 (going to DTD on 12/25 & MK on 12/26), so I'm hoping if it is still running rampant (which sounds like it would be), that they are immune to it...

I'll be bringing the antibacterial handwash, wipes and be the handwashing police...

Thanks for the 'good' info, all...

Ugh. I so hope that we don't get this when we go next month. I'm pregnant, so this could be really dangerous to me and to the baby.

Just a reminder though, antibacterial gel and wipes don't do a thing to kill any virus. They won't protect you against Norwalk at all. Bleach kills the virus as does the Lysol spray and good old fashioned hand washing.

That's not entirely true. If your antibac hand gel or wipes have a 68% or higher alcohol content it will kill the virus. Thats why they sterilize medical implements in isoprophyl alcohol. Also, your manicurist, pedicurist and stylist uses alcohol based products to sanitize their implements. If they dont, they should!

There were literally guests puking outside of the resort, in the food courts and bathrooms!


Didn't these people get the memo?!!!

Disney has a tough Anti-Puking Policy!
Puking is NOT permitted in any WDW restaurant.
Guests who Puke in their rooms, or on it's balconies or patios will be charged a Room Recovery Fee!!!

Puking is allow only in the DPA's.

Hopefully your sharing of the info will make many realize that when you get sick at Disney it is very likely a virus and not food poisoning.
Actually they are considered the same thing as the most likely way of catching this virus is from food handlers. Just because someone is wearing gloves does not mean the gloves aren't contaminated. Had in college one day, thought someone cut me across the gut with a knife. Had to go to Urgent Care, and they gave me some sort of shot that made me very sleepy, but cured me. I was severely dehydrated.

Most likely the reason two adjacent rooms had it is due to Mousekeeping. Wearing contaminated gloves going room to room cleaning and/or changing drinking glasses, towels, soaps etc.

Well I'm glad to see this, they need to be inforcing it! It's not fair to those of us that paid our hard earned money and just want to enjoy a puke free vacation!!!

Once the holidays are over at WDW, will the liklihood of catching the norovirus decrease? It is going around big time in Michigan right now. I would think that after the holidays when the crowds are not as large at WDW, that it will calm down a bit. I hope so, because we're going on January 10.

Add me to the Virus as well! We were a family of 4 at WL from 12-14-12-20. I'm a clean freak and was telling me kids not to touch the chains bars ect. getting out the hand sanitizer after every ride. Making everyone was hands tons and tons. All was well until Wed. around 1:00PM at Epcot. We had a 1:40 ressie at Le Cellier (my favorite of course). I started feeling nauseaus so I checked to see if we could eat early thinking I was just hungry. They were full so it was around 2:15 when we got seated. I looked at the menu and ran to the bathroom getting very sick. I took the bus back to WL and yes I made it back leaving my family to eat. Stayed in bed all night and felt fine in the morning. I was very careful what I ate. Then Thursday night I got sick again after we got back to the resort and was ill until Mid morning on Friday. On a positive note my DH, DS, and DD never got sick and we still had plenty of time in the parks. I'm not sure how I picked it up as careful as I was but am thankful it didn't ruin our trip.

I hope your right, we get there on the 10th too. We have 3 little ones in our family, I'd hate for them especially to get sick while away from home.
