    I am currently taking an over the counter pain medication for arthritis, something I cannot make it through a park day without. What are the rules for bringing in over the counter medication?

    Hi there, Ann Marie! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question.

    As a physical therapist, I know that nothing can slow you down on a magical theme park day at The Most Magical Place on Earth than joint aches and pains. I'm so glad that you are taking charge of your health and planning ahead so that you can enjoy every second and every step of your summer vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. I'm honored to answer your planning question today!

    I think you will be happy to hear that you can absolutely pack some over-the-counter pain medication in your park bag to bring with you to the theme parks. In fact, I always make sure to pack some over-the-counter pain relievers in my park bag every time I visit a theme park, because I wouldn't want my fun spoiled by a headache or any aches and pains that can come with walking and standing for most of the day. Magical vibes only! 

    While you're packing your park bag, don't forget to pack adhesive bandages for possible blisters, sunscreen, lip balm, sunglasses and your poncho, as well as your medication. That way, you will be prepared for anything, most of all, a fun-filled, pixie-dusted day!

    Ann Marie, I hope this was helpful, and I hope you have an unforgettable, pain-free, magical summer vacation! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
