Poor thing! I know there is one near. I think on Sand Lake. Call your concierge and ask them. Or try the phone book or google it.

There is one in the Downtown Disney area. That is where I took my son when his elbow got dislocated. They were great and they even took Ben quickly since he was crying an all. Call your front desk and they will give you a map and directions. Hope your little one feels better soon.

I'm so sorry!
They also have a service where a doctor will come to your room, I'm sure it's more expensive, but is very convenient, especially if you don't have a car on property. The concierge I'm sure can give you all the options.
I hope he's feeling better soon! And enjoy the rest of your trip!

we were at wdw a few years ago when my dad caught the flu. I just picked up the phone and asked the front desk if there was a dr. on call. They said yes and connected me to the office. I'm not sure where they were located but they were at our room by 12:30. I hope everything goes well for your son!

Has your son had ear infections before? When we were there one time my dd had one and I just called our pediatrician and he called in an antibiotic for us.

Another time my ds was sick and I'm pretty sure that we went to the Centra Care in LBV when my son was ill one time. Unfortunately we ended up at the ER anyway but they were wonderful to us there.

Hope he feels better soon!

Thank you all!!

I ended up getting a cab to CVS and got some medicated ear drops and ear plugs. I *think* it's really a case of swimmers ear, since this, and a heating pad has seemed to help so far.

I am keeping a very close eye on him and having him rest for the rest of the day in our room. If something doesn't give by tomorrow I'm going to utilize the doctor coming to our room. I'm going to try his pediatrician first, since he DOES have a history of ear infections. I should've KNOWN better than to let him swim without ear plugs.

Thank you again!!

Too late for OP, obviously, but for anyone searching....

DD had an ear infection last Disney trip and we went to the Celebration ER (we were staying at SSR) at 4 in the morning. Great care, we were in and out in about 75 minutes with a prescription and they took my insurance (military Tricare) with no problems or out of pocket costs. Nice facility.

We went to Centra Care when my daughter got ear infections in Disney. We were able to walk in without an appointment and we waited nearly an hour. But, once we got in to see the doctor, he was great with my daughter, who just turned one a few days before. It was very convenient to the Pop Century as well.

My family will be in Disney this coming May again and last time I didn't even think about where the nearest Urgent Care was. With our insurance it's a simple $40 copay to visit an Urgent Care where if I had to take them to the E.R. we'd have to pay 20 percent! So, I was wondering if yall knew exactally which Urgent Care is closest to the POR. Thanks!
