Family friends, who will be traveling to WDW this weekend, say they have heard that a virus is going around at the resorts. They've gone so far as to request Rx's from their doctors for Phenergan to take on their trip.
While I applaud their effort to "be prepared", I'm wondering if this is a bit of a knee-jerk reaction to a rumor that may or may not be credible.
I have searched the net, and other than a December 11, 2008 report on the disboards about a family who contracted the Norwalk Virus (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, etc.) at the Beach Club Resort, I do not see anything to confirm an outbreak at the resorts, though the cruises do seem to have more than their fair share of guests with the virus.
We leave in 24 days for our trip and with 3 small children of my own and 2 young nephews (one is an infant), I'm wondering if my family should be worried.
Anyone out there who have been to WDW recently and contracted the virus? Any locals who've heard something through the grapevine? Castmembers who've witnessed an outbreak firsthand?
Any information, advice, or help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
