    Disneylady,s Nightmare/dream Holiday

    Disneylady,s Nightmare/dream Holiday


    Where do I begin........................This is what happened on my last visit to Disneyworld in October ................The flight takes about 9hrs................well about 2 hrs before we were due to land in Orlando my Husband started to feel really ill & by the time we got to Orlando he had collapsed, so as soon as the crew got all the other passengers off the medic crew dashed onboard ( they were fantastic ) .it was like something you see on the tv or movies..............anyway they got him off the aircraft & into an ambulance & we had a Police escort (sirens wailing ) & I had to sit up front with the ambulance driver....ambulance sirens on too.....She said bet you never thought you,d be riding in an ambulance!!.......I said " No, I thought my first ride in Orlando would have been in Disneyworld,s "Splash Mountain".I had to make a kinda joke or I,d have .


    He was in Sandlake Hospital for 4 days & it was an ulcer that caused all the trouble so all our plans had to be set aside when he got out & we took it easy day to day as he felt very weak & not up to more than a few hours at a park at a time.
    But we were determined to enjoy what we had left of our holiday as its not like you live an hour away & can go back any time.....................Oh & to top that ,I had no luggage!!!!!!!!!!!!!from the Friday evening ( when we got there ) till Sunday night .............late at night ................when I finally got the Airport to deliver my luggage direct to the Hotel.
    When I left him at the hospital it was like 2.30AM IN THE MORNING and I called a cab & thought I,d wait outside the main entrance ......by 3..30AM still no cab .& to be honest I was getting really frightened at that time of the morning standing in the dark..........so back into the hospital I went & they rang for me again & finally at 4am I got a cab to check into my hotel. NIGHTMARE.
    We got to all the parks during the following 2 weeks and even got to a " Halloween Party " in Magic Kingdom.& went to "Dixie Stampede" dinner show ...I highly recommend it .
    Had loads of photos done & made the most of the situation .................. now I can,t wait for Nov/Dec this year when we hope to do all the things we weren,t able to do last time.
    Oh & one more little thing that went wrong..as we left"Epcot" we bought our photos that we got done in there that day.....four lovely ones. Somehow we lost them on the way back to the Hotel...........so back we went to "Epcot " the next day & luckily I had the photopass & the receipt & were able to get them done again............I said " These are the most expensive photos I,ve had done & the lovely man said "no charge mam" Thankyou Disneyworld.......there are some nice people around.
    You never think in a million years that something like this can happen to you on your holiday good job we had the right kind of insurance...the many bills came to over 26thousand american dollars........................ FRIGHTENING.
    Thanks to anyone who reads my "Happy Holiday "review lol lol

    Wow, I bet you never thought you would be spending your trip like that! Thank goodness he was ok and it all turned out. But hey, you were still in Disneyworld, that at least was worth it - and you have stories to tell for a long time!!!
    Nothing to countdown to, so just smile and be happy everyday!

    Whew.... thank goodness he was ok. An airplane is never a good place to become ill, especially in the midst of a trans-oceanic crossing like that. At least over land the Captain can decide to put the plane down in the case of a medical emergency, but over the water like that... you no longer have that option. Glad to hear everything worked out though, and that everyone was safe. And it sounds like you still had a pretty good time for the rest of the trip. Good for you.

    And wow...thank goodness you had good insurance! That's a lot of money!
