Unfortunately, the Place Where Dreams Come True has a lot of germs. Thousands of guests visit the parks each day and with them comes a wide variety of germs. Germs can be picked up from surfaces that get touched a lot such as railings, queue line games (think Space Mountain), and bathrooms. To avoid getting sick be sure to wash hands with soap and water after using the bathroom and before eating. Additionally if you or a family member is ill, rest up at your resort so others don't get sick.
