Norwalk Virus at Walt Disney World?

WDW Vacation Planning News

Website speculates that Walt Disney World may be in the midst of a Norwalk Virus outbreak following multiple reports on its message boards from recent guests.


WDWInfo quotes one forum poster as saying:

It took my family out one by one during our 8 night stay. It came on viciously and violently. It started out with nausea and then forceful vomiting and diarreah for about 8 hours. It was so bad that all of us had accidents and could not make it to the bathroom (to vomit) at least a few times. The staff at the YC (Yacht Club) and BC (Beach Club) were wonderful and told us that they and SSR (Saratoga Springs Resort) had been hit the hardest. There were literally guests puking outside of the resort, in the food courts and bathrooms!

Symptoms of the illness include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, muscle aches and general lethargy.
