First things first, the sickness did not come from the water at Blizard Beach. Disney does chlorinate their water. One commenter pointed out that these Guests were likely exposed to Norovirus. Norovirus is a virus that is extremely contagious. It is common in theme Parks or other places with a lot of highly touched surfaces. Norovirus symptoms include vomiting and stomach sickness. A misconception about Norovirus is that a hand sanitizer will protect you from it. Unfortunately, this will not work, and instead, you should be washing your hands for a long period of time.

The next time you are visiting Walt Disney World Resort, make sure to be very cautious about washing your hands often. Theme Parks are full of many germs, and it is important to stay clean in order to avoid Norovirus or another sickness.
