Where do you go for medical attention when you get sick at Walt Disney World

Get Sick in the Parks?

Of course, we won’t want anyone to get sick while they’re in the Disney Parks. But, after a few too many spins on the Teacups, you may find yourself needing something to stop the world from spinning.

First Aid Stations

Whether you’re getting motion sickness, have a headache, or you simply need a bandaid, each Park is equipped with a First Aid Station.

Visiting one should only be used for minor illnesses and scrapes since you’ll only receive over-the-counter medications, bandages, and other quick remedies. But, it’s a good alternatives to purchasing highly priced items in the Gift Shop.

To find the locations of the closest First Aid location in the Theme Parks and Water Parks, you can find maps on the My Disney Experience App or Disney’s Website.

They can help you decide whether a trip to a doctor is necessary. If medications need to be filled, you do have a few options.

If you don’t have a car, your prescription can be sent to Turner Drugs, a pharmacy that Walt Disney World works with. They also deliver prescriptions to your Resort, so you don’t have to worry about picking it up.

If you have your car, there are also several Walgreens, CVS, and Publix stores near Walt Disney World.

Need to store your medical supplies? All rooms have at least a mini fridge. But, First Aid centers can store medications for you, if you need them to.

Special containers can be provided for disposal of hypodermic needles, as well.
