5 days to go. Ds spiked a pretty good fever after fighting some kind of bug off and on the past couple weeks. First time he has spiked a temp. I'm stressing he will still be sick wednesday when we are supposed to leave for the world.
Also not liking the weather report. Even watching it daily and it's looking like a lot of rain for a few days of our trip . Bummed. We live in a very rainy part of the country as it is and look forward to when we can escape and get some real summer so to speak. I can handle the daily short showers I expect at disneyworld but it bums me out if it rains most of the day
And even more that ds is all better by your trip!!!
Not that you want an ER visit but on our last trip ds had an asthma attack that we could not get under control with his nebulizer. When I called the front desk to find out where the hospital was (it was 2am a clinic wasn't an option) they called for an ambulance. We were at Caribbean Beach so the fire station was right across the street but they were there very quickly. They also gave him nebulizer treatments and still couldn't get his pulse/ox up to where it was supposed to be so he was take via ambulance to Celebration Hospital. Thankfully, we had a rental so I followed behind the ambulance. The hospital was fantastic!!! We are used to dealing with our local ER that has a special Children's ER so I was a little worried about just going to the ER but they were great!!! They gave him yet another treatment with a stronger med and thankfully we were out of there just as the sun was coming up. I know someone from the front desk at CB called us later in the day to check on ds and see if we needed anything, I think the hospital also called to check on him.
Again, not that you want a trip to the ER while on vacation, but it was something I had never really thought about since we've been vacationing in the spring and those ER trips usually happen in the middle of winter. It was nice to be reassured by the ambulance personnel that ds would be in good hands and that they would be able to handle his asthma. Just wanted to share our experience, just in case. Honestly, from now on I'll take our GPS with us to cut out the middle man (ambulance), I always know when we need an ER trip. Hopefully we won't have another one in Disney again, but you never know.

Little guys often have shocking temperature spikes that last only a few hours or a day or two. If you have several days to go, odds are he'll be fine by then. Our son got sick at WDW a few years ago: rash, high temp, vomiting. He managed to recover by that evening, possibly motivated by the thought of missing Fantasmic.
Unless you are having an actual tropical storm (a real possibility in FL duing the summer), rain tends to come and go fairly quickly. Bring your ponchos and enjoy the uncrowded rides as others who have less experience with inclement weather than you flee back to their rooms. There are lots of things to do at WDW "inside," so you'll likely still enjoy the magic, even with a few August cloudbursts.
Have a wonderful trip!

Thanks for the pixies and well wishes everyone. My Ds is still spiking a temp today so off to urgent care we go to just be sure. He is 14 years old and has never been a fever runner, so to speak. The only times he has ever ran a fever is when he has had strep (no sore throat or anything right now) and when he had a bowel obstruction at age 4. Otherwise no fevers. His only symptoms with this are no energy (not surprising running a high fever) a bit of a headache, and not a great appetite. No nausea or anything. I just want to get him looked at as a precaution before we leave. Probably a virus.....hoping!
Well, dr says he has a virus, one that has been making the rounds and can last up to 8weeks.....but he does not expect things to get worse and expects the fever to go in a couple days. He said he can get on that plane Wednesday as long as he is improving. Lots of rest and liquids and good food when he does eat. Ds is very relieved and happy!
