While the Guest believed that they had food poisoning, other fans are feeling confident that that is not the case.

Norovirus Strikes Again

Many Disney fans are sounding off that this Guest could have contracted Norovirus, a highly contagious gastrointestinal illness that commonly targets Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. This microorganism has affected not only the Disney theme parks but also the Disney Cruise Line, leaving many visitors concerned about the potential risks they may encounter when visiting Disney-related establishments.

Disney Parks are full of high-touch areas that make a Norovirus outbreak very easy. While Cast Members do a lot to sanitize and keep the Parks clean, there is only so much they can do to protect Guests from this illness fully.

When visiting the Parks, it is always important to thoroughly wash and use hand sanitizer often, especially before eating any food. The Parks can be an incredibly magical experience, but there is nothing that will ruin a trip sooner than an unforeseen and avoidable illness.
