Sorry Iíve not posted earlier. Iíve been struck down with an absolutely vile tummy bug that has really put a dampener on the first 2 days. Itís also given me a temperature of 39.5, although Iíve been able to bring it down a bit with tablets. Had to leave Magic Kingdom about 1 on Monday and spent the rest of the day in bed. I was able to spend slightly longer in EPCOT yesterday but majorly regretted doing so when I had to get a wheelchair from Teppan Edo back to the bus from sheer exhaustion. Things are not off to a great start but Iím feeling slightly better and my temperature is 37.4 without paracetamol so Iím hoping itís on itís way out now!

Day 1
We started the day off with some cereal in the room. No photos of this Iím afraid as itís not massively exciting! We were up and out at 8.30am. We popped on the bus to Hospitality House to pick up our refillable mugs and grabbed a drink for on the way to the park. When we got there, we went to sort a disability pass for my friend then headed to our first FastPass - BTMR. When we got there, it was down So we jumped on Splash Mountain instead! Love this ride! Then, we took Noah for his first haircut - he was such a little superstar.



Then, we headed over to Fantasyland and popped into Gastonís Tacern for a Le Fouís Brew for Will. He really enjoyed it.



Then we went to our reservation for Be Our Guest for an early lunch at 11.20. Itís so, so lovely in here! We sat in the main ballroom next to a Ďwindowí. I had a turkey sandwich (without the mayo) and fries. It was lovely but WAY too much (especially when Iím feeling ill) and I hardly ate half. Will had the cheese and ham toasty and demolished it





After lunch, I hit a wall and my bug properly kicked in. I had to leave so we came back to the hotel and I pretty much spent most of my afternoon in bed. Will being the gent he is, didnít leave my side except to get himself and Noah some dinner from Gurgling Suitcase. He had a burger and fries and paid OOP - whyyyy?! He said it was nice enough. The girls still went to our Ohana reservation, but I wasnít up for it at all. Disney were amazing though and they managed to fit Will, Noah and myself in on Sunday night (and theyíre letting us use our TS Credits, even though they run out the day before). Disney customer service at its best.

Oh no, bless you what a nasty way to start your holiday! I hope you feel much better soon and that's so good of Disney to do that for you. Looking forward to the rest of your trip report

Iím so sorry to hear youíve been ill, an absolute nightmare on holiday and I have anxiety all year about the potential of it. What great customer service from Disney coming to the rescue with ĎOhana. It sounds like you've been a trooper though.

Day 2 - EPCOT

This morning, I woke up around 4am but Iíd had a pretty terrible night. I was up several times in the night with the upset tummy. When the others woke up around 7, Iíd already had the decision that I felt too poorly to be going out. Especially this early. I had a bit of a cry and tried to get some more sleep. Will said that he wasnít happy to leave me, so him and Noah stayed in with me and had some cereal and doughnuts. I promise Noah doesnít normally have doughnuts for breakfast but, on this holiday, he had a lot of sugary treats

Around 9.30, I had a bit of a boost and decided I wanted to go out. I knew I was pushing it but there was no way I was sitting in and not enjoying the 6 days we had at Disney on the dining plan.

We got up and changed and headed out. When we got there, I felt SO rough. At this point, I was so angry with myself but the others persuaded me and try and eat. We popped into the closest place, Electric Umbrella, and Will and I shared the pulled pork sandwich and fries. I managed a few mouthfuls and actually did feel a little better after. I forgot to take a photo though so Google has helped me out here!



After, we headed over to some of the smoother rides (Soariní, Nemo etc) and I grabbed a frozen Minute Maid as a snack credit. It was really refreshing. I was craving fizzy drinks and thought this was a better option. Yum!



We then decided to head over to World Showcase. Mexico bound! We took Noah on the ride here and he loved it! We then walked around to Norway and decided to grab something for Noah from the bakery! It was a chocolate covered pretzel and he devoured it



We then spent the rest of the afternoon mooching around World Showcase until we got to Japan. I was very excited about our Teppan Edo reservation, despite the fact I felt so ill. I managed some of the food and it was absolutely delicious. I went for the chicken and steak combo and really enjoyed it. The issue was, by this point, Iíd started to dread eating because I knew Iíd suffer for it. But there was no way I wasnít trying it!



I kept my drink simple and just went for orange juice and for dessert, I tried the mango cake. Simple and refreshing. I ended the night feeling so poorly, but I had a good day so it was worth it.
