Worst trip ever!

We just returned from our trip on 12-18 and all 6 of us were sick. We arrived on 12-13, both girls got sick in the early morning of the 15th and were in bed all day. The next morning I woke up with the same thing. Next day, both the boys woke up sick. Then on the day we going home DH woke up with it. Not a very magical trip! We were at the POR and were told it has been very bad there too. We used all the precautions and nothing stopped us from getting the nasty bug. Very disappointed this was my kids Christmas gift. I feel like now I have to do something else, but after all the money for the trip I can't afford to. Hope the bug runs out of steam soon!!

I'm so sorry to hear about all the trips that had to deal with sickness. I'm going in January around MLK Weekend...I can only hope that with the 3 weeks between now and then the virus will have died out by then.

I feel so bad for you. I can't imagine spending all that money and then not being able to enjoy the trip. I am sorry you were all sick. I hope you still have a very Merry Christmas, but I can just imagine the disappointment you feel.

I am SO sorry this happened to you! I'm scared of the same thing. This is the first and last trip we'll be able to take as a big family (there are 17 of us). And as for my immediate family, unlike most people here we won't get to go again for who knows how many years. Not to mention the $1700 it costs us is a TON of money to us... I'm praying we don't all get sick.

out of curiosity, in rooms with washers and dryers, should you run a cycle of some type of bleaching agent in there as well? i know you can get sick no matter where in the world you are, but there does seem to be a strain floating around down around the mouse's house. just looking for precautions as we will be leaving in 10 days

Thanks guys! MommyBryn I'm sending TONS of pixie dust your way that you guys have a wonderful trip and no bugs!!! I still can't wait till I can plan the next trip!!! I do think next time we will go for summer when maybe the tummy bug has not come to the world yet. I do have to say the best part of the trip was seeing my daughter when she meet Tink. It was the highlight of the trip! She is 21 years old but you would have thought she was 5 again, it was great!!!!

We were there for Thanksgiving and my boys got sick on our departure day. DS1 was sick in the airport during a 4 hour delay - not fun! DS4 got sick 3 days later at 4am in the morning!

We stayed at the BWI, if that makes a difference. People are saying to hand sanitize while your at the buffets (all that touching the serving utensils). We didn't know it was going around WDW until we got home.

I think for all those going soon, just stock up on clorox wipes, travel lysol, and hand sanitizer (I love the Germ X in the pens from Walmart!).

Safe and healthy holidays for those going to WDW

I was throwing up right outside Norway and some guy told me not to drink so much next time! I wish I could have puked on him, bugger.

I hope not! I've been getting the impression it's been worse at DVC places among large groups, but maybe not.....

HUGS and lots of pixie dust and prayers headed everyone's way!! The same for us would be appreciated, we leave Tuesday for POR....

Take heart. I was at BC and it was rampant there, just rampant. The CMs there told me that YC, BC and SSR was the hardest hit. I don't know how accurate that was but I can vouch for hallways of towels and puke at the BC.

I too am a WDW veteran and have been over 100x....I have never, never been this sick in years. I did catch something kinda of like this in my teens, but that has been a good 15 years ago.

I wonder why those three saw it the hardest? Maybe we SHOULD be back in the FW cabins. I haven't heard anyone report back being ill after being there so far. Though I'm sure people have been....

EpcotBeauty, I am still so so sorry this happened to you and your family. Not to say I'm not sorry for the others, but I just wanted to tell you that since you've been posting here alot. And if it weren't for you, I might not have known about all this.
