    Re: Halloween at Disneyland Beware!

    I agree with BiggestDisneyFan, H1N1 is waaayy too hyped by the media. The regular flu has killed more people than it. It's being blown way out of proportion. But, I half agree with what you guys are saying. You might think I'm crazy but, if you have the fever, stay home. If you only have a cold and you're not dripping snot, I think it's okay as long as no water rides. If you really are scared, you could've just gone as a doctor with face mask and gloves to halloween, and no one would've known, lols

    These topics can get ugly, and I'm not gonna voice any particularly strong opinions, but I will say that it'd be nice to live in a world where people who were sick generally tried to avoid spreading their germs, even if it meant a bit of personal sacrifice, and where people who weren't sick accepted the fact that any social situation poses viral risks while still taking reasonable precautions to protect themselves. I think the general public would strike a nice balance between health and convenience. Also, I have no memory of ever getting sick in the week after a Disneyland trip, surprisingly. I guess I just try to wash my hands if it's convenient to do so, avoid touching stuff when possible, and keep my face away from other people's faces. Perhaps it's karma...I've never gone to Disneyland with a contagious illness, either.

    thats because a lot of people usually go to halloween parties with their costumes on and just have fun dancing away into the night.

    I once saw them doing a lot of cleaning in one of the swinging cars on Mickey's Fun Wheel. You have to wonder in DCA if it's not the flu but the stuff in the green cups that gets people vomiting. It can't be good mixing alcohol and some of those rides.

    The most important thing to understand about this situation: The idea that H1N1 is this 'killer' strain of flu is just hype that the media have fed on. H1N1 or 'Swine Flu' is a bit nastier than most of the other strains of influenza that have been seen in the last decade or two, but it is really no worse for most people that do not have compromised or otherwise weak immune systems.

    Parents of babies or toddlers, and the elderly, should definitely be very cautious, but most other people can get just as sick from most other strains of flu, and people are more likely to catch other strains, since there has been so much effort spent to quarantine people that do or may have H1N1. A considerably greater number of people have contracted strains of the flu other than H1N1, within the last year.

    That all being said, I think that this is a better time than any to carry a bottle of hand sanitizer and/or anti-bacterial wipes with you, if you're going to a public place. Extra helpings of vitamin C are a great idea, too. That goes double for those small kids and elderly people. Oh, and forget wearing one of those dust masks. First, unless you get a surgical quality mask, they do nothing to block germs. Second, they are designed to prevent the wearer from breathing germs onto others, and will not help you keep from catching a virus if you are wearing one.

    One more thing... Please, parents, keep an eye on your kids when in public places and don't let them get away with gross stuff! I've seen way too many examples of kids picking their noses (or other orifices) and then wiping it on hand-rails, kids putting their mouths all over fixtures that shouldn't been in anybodies' mouth, etc. And, for god's sake, don't bring sick kids to the parks or go to the parks if you are sick! It's one thing if someone has hay-fever, but a really runny nose, deep coughing, and especially any sign of a fever, are definitely signs that you should stay home if at all possible! Besides being abundant germ spreaders, if a kid is sick they are going to be extra whiney and cranky, which will prevent your family, and probably others, from really enjoying their time at the park.

    If you've planned your trip to a Disney park in advance, and you or your kid becomes sick, I sympathize with your inconvenience, but you should still stay home. Don't make you're problems into other people's problems.

Pluto is hugging ang talking to this one little girl a family up from us, who has a bandaid on her face, with what happened paws. Her parents go "oh its her booboo." The next second she shouts out "Ive got ringworm!" after the fact she has rubbed her face all into Pluto. Pluto had to leave after that, but how disappointing.
    One of the greatest things about kids....they are honest! That's too bad she possibly spread her germs to others including the cast member. I would also blame the parents. I'm sure they tried to prep their kid to say oh it's just my boo-boo. Kids say the truth especially at a young age. My opinion they shouldn't be exposing their kid with that type of illness to the public that is how it spreads. That's why doctors will tell you to stay home if you have swine flu because that is how it quickly spreads. Now it is true it takes 7 to 10 days before you really know you have contracted it. But if you already know you have it or any other serious illness and you go out in public unneccessarily then that's just wrong and selfish on that person's part.

    This is really just like any other day at Disneyland. Anyone can have swine flu at Disneyland every time you go, but that really doesn't stop you from going does it? The entire month of October, people have been flooding Disneyland and DCA, i really just see this whole scenario as another day, another night at Disneyland. Just bring hand sanitizer and don't touch your face often.

    Going to Disneyland always poses a risk of illness. It is packed with tons of people, often crowded into small spaces. You touch countless things throughout the day that other people have touched. It takes about 7 to 10 days for swine flu symptoms to appear once you have contracted it, so many people, both adults and children, could be walking around with it without even knowing.
