I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat
The camping trip got a little hairy

We got back last night and I thought the overall blech feeling we had at the beginning of our trip was some kind of flu type thing...then I thought my vomiting was due to too many Kahlua candies at EPCOT'S Mexico....but when we all started having diarrhea and nausea....I figured we had the much talked about "Disney Dysentery"

Thankfully we didn't have the projectile vomiting but I'll leave the specifics at that

LOL -- I feel the same way! This is our "dream" Christmas trip and I'm just hoping it doesn't turn into a NIGHTMARE!!

I got back from the Beach Club Villas on the night of Saturday Dec. 13th

On Wednesday morning, Dec.17th, I Woke up with the worst stomach bug I ever had in my life!!!

Did I get the bug on vacation?
I have no idea.

This bug gave me the projectile vomiting, heavy diarrhea and the absolute worst stomach cramps. I was groaning in lots of pain. I had not been this sick in many years! I also had severe chills, too.

This bug is nasty, so extra hand washing is necessary so you don't catch it.

We check in Sunday also. I leave to start driving tomorrow from Northern Va. BUT with 3 boys 11 1/2, 11 1/2 (yes twins) and a 15 1/2 (with that teenage angst), It is about 850 miles - about 12+ hours. BUT I plan to take my time. I originally planned to leave no later than 9am BUT now if I get out before noon I will be happy. I have most of the clothes all packed - Truck is not - BUT I still have more medical supplies to pack - already have 2 boxes done and meds, cooler for med, etc.

I have now added WIPES to my list to pick up at Wal-Mart when I get closer to FL. I was also so looking forward to X-mas in Disney - BUT my biggest fear being away from home for 2 weeks is that each time I have tried to go away for a week or more Clay has ended up in a hospital so now I am terrified.

Hugs
Sharon

The big problem at Disney is getting the hot water! None of the park restrooms that I've been in have hot water. Most of them just have that button over the spigot, or the automatic faucets, and they put out cool or if you're lucky, lukewarm, water. I still wash thoroughly with soap and water, but I also use the towelettes (and ones with plenty of alcohol) to sanitize before eating. So far (continuing to knock on wood) it's worked for me. Of course, being an AP holder, I also don't wait in long lines where I could come in contact with infected people. I try to steer clear of crowds whenever possible at Disney, just because it's more relaxing that way.

I hope this virus works it's way out by the end of January when I go back. So far, no one I work with has had it, or any of their family.

Did you use the buses or did you drive yourself? I always think of everyone on the buses breathing the same air for half an hour, it's the same as riding in a airplane. Maybe we will rent a car.

Ok I am going to sound like the "spoiler" here but I do not think just disinfecting your room is going to totally protect you. Definitely do it to help put you at ease and cover that area but just think of the railings, handle bars, merchandise etc that you touch during the day. You just do not know where you will pick the virus up. If you spend your whole trip worried about getting sick then you may not have the best time. Do you stay at home to avoid viruses? No. So go and have a great time and don't spend your time worrying about getting sick.
DH and I were there from 11th-16th. We flew, took DME, used buses etc and did not get sick nor did we see or hear of anyone else getting sick.

Just go and have FUN!!!

Is the only thing that will help you get over the Norwalk virus time? Are there any medicines or whatever we can bring to at least appease the stomach craps? Sounds like this is the type of bug that you just have to wait out...

So glad you and your dh escaped the bug!

I don't stay home to avoid illness, but it sure is easier being sick and miserable at home where you have everything you need than on a vacation where you're in a hotel room or on a plane (or spending hours in a car) getting home. Plus, all that money down the drain if you're sick through your trip ...

All that being said, we leave tomorrow and I'm going to be as vigilant as I can. Other than that, there's nothing we can do but enjoy our trip as much as possible and PRAY that we don't pick anything up!
