In case you didn’t already know, Disney World provides First Aid Stations in each of the parks. The best part about it is that it’s FREE! There’s nothing worse than planning and traveling to the happiest place on Earth and getting sick! I myself have utilized their services before as I had a migraine kick in when I was in the Animal Kingdom and my medicine was in my room! Miserable experience!
What to Expect
When you enter the First Aid Station you will be greeted by a nurse who hands you a form to complete with your name and contact information. You will then be administered the proper medication for your needs. The First Aid Station has various over the counter medication, Band-Aids, bandages, etc. Why buy the gift shop medicine when you can go to First Aid for free?
Where to Find Them
In the Magic Kingdom you can find the First Aid Station near the Crystal Palace; In Epcot it is in the Odyssey Center; in Hollywood Studios it is near Guest Services; In Animal Kingdom it is on Discovery Island; In Typhoon Lagoon it is behind Leaning Palms; and at Blizzard Beach it is located between Lottawatta Lodge and Beach Haus.
Hopefully one visit to the First Aid Station will get you back to your magical vacation. However, if you need the services of a physician, there is a Centra Care Walk In Urgent Care that is open weekdays 8:00 a.m. – midnight and on weekends from 8:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. They offer free transportation to local attractions to and from their facility.
