    Hi Jodi - let's hope no one is sick on our vacation, but what if they are? Where is the nearest urgent care type facility where they could do a quick strep throat test or something like that? We are staying at CBR. Thanks!

    None of us want to think about someone getting sick or injured while on vacation but it does happen (my husband got the flu on our honeymoon, so I'm all too aware of how it can happen).

    Thankfully, Disney has some excellent health-care options available. For minor issues, there are first aid stations at each of  the parks available, which are staffed with qualified nurses. For larger concerns, there are several good options. Another moms panelist recently used a doctor on call service recommended by the hotel concierge. With this service, your family is able to enjoy the comfort of your hotel room while a highly qualified doctor visits your room directly. You do pay for this service, but may be able submit for reimbursement to your insurance.

    Another moms panelist recommends the CentraCare walk-in medical clinic, which she used when her daughter had an ear infection. They provided her with Tylenol and helped them fill a prescription for antibiotics at a pharmacy next door. Finally, if your needs are greater than what a doctor or clinic can provide, Disney will provide complimentary transportation to the local Celebration hospital.

    Now let's hope your vacation is wonderful and healthy!
