    There is a Centra Care clinic (an urgent care clinic) that you can go to. Disney will also arrange for complimentary transportation if need be.

    Disney can also arrange for a doctor to come to your hotel room, but it will definately cost you - I've heard that a visit is typically around $120.

    Each park has a first-aid center, if you fall ill in a park.

    If you're in your resort, call the front desk. There are Urgent Care centers nearby (but not on property) and if needed they will help you arrange transportation.

    And that was just about the cost of Centra Care bill for my son when he was down there in the college program. But they did take my PPO with him only paying the co-pay. It took him almost 4 hours to get in and out of there during cold and flu season and lordie only knows what else he was exposed to.

    My sister used in room doctor for my niece when she blew an ear infection, was very happy with them. Timely too.

    Geez just saw your other post, hope he is doing better soon.
