Our overall experiece
We think the illnesses was from the resort hotel water.
The rides and shows at all the parks were great. It is amazing how many rides and shows we ended up seeing over our 7 day adventure. It is amazing though how many people were there, considering we were there at a low season time. I could not imagine how many people there would be there at peak season.
Disney has so many employees(cast members) I would love to know the amount of people Disney employs. At all the parks, hotels, restaurants, there are cast members everywhere. It is amazing to see. I hope Disney pays them well.
The Disney Dining Plan was something we are still iffy about. We did eat enough to make it worth it for us, but I don't think I would do it again. You have to eat so much food. The adults cost $38.99 a day and the kids $9.99 a day. The price for the kids was worth it, because it was so cheap, but for us, because we aren't big eaters, it just seemed like a lot of waste half of the time. To much food.
Jet blue airlines was terrific. We had no problems on both of our flights, they both left on time, and arrived on time or early. They hand out free ear phones, and you have your own individual TV on the back of the seat in front of you, which is nice. They handed out snacks and drinks and our overall flying experience with them was great.
One recommendation I would make for Disney is to have Purell dispensers everywhere. With the amount of people going through Disney, they really need to have this. At the front when you scan in, you have to put your finger on a scanner, which 10000 people before you just did, and let me tell you, they are not clean. All the rides, ropes, railings and turnstiles you touch and the amount of germs you pick up, Disney really should be on top of that, and get the Purell dispensers in. If you go, make sure you bring wipes and your own purell as you are going to need it.
Overall Disney is a great place to visit. It is a lot of fun, and a great adventure for those of all ages. A experience we will never forget.
And that's the wonderful thing about family travel: it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in the scar tissue of your mind. ~Dave Barry In America there are two classes of travel - first class, and with children. ~Robert Benchley
