First Aid Walt DIsney World

Everything You Need to Know About First Aid at Walt Disney World

First Aid may not be the most exciting part of planning your Disney World vacation, but whether you need some medical assistance during your trip, or are considering how to store medication before you arrive, knowing what services are available at first aid can be helpful.

Disney offers a number of services at first aid stations, that are located in each of the four Disney theme parks as well as at both water parks. Here is a look at everything available at first aid and how you can plan to use these services if needed during your trip.

First aid basics

While Disney’s first aid stations are staffed with an RN, and even have beds for resting when needed and private rooms, they are also a good place to stop for any basic, non-emergency medical needs you may find yourself after during a trip to a Disney Park.

These services include ice, bandages, aspirin, bug spray, motion sickness treatment, and more. Visiting first aid is free, and single doses of medication along with items like a single-use bandage are also free, so if you are feeling a little off, it certainly never hurts to stop by. First aid does also have full boxes of medication and bandages, as well as diapers which are also available at Baby Care, and those would come at an added fee.

Along with these types of common low-grade medical needs, first aid can help with things like holding and refrigerating medications and charging oxygen devices. If you have a medical condition that requires blood pressure monitoring, IV poles, or a private space to give yourself medical treatment (including adult diaper changes), there are also facilities for these services in first aid locations.

Beyond the basics

Each first aid location does have an RN on-site, as well as private examination rooms. If a medical problem arises that a Guest needs treatment for that is beyond what it is available at first aid, Cast Members can make arrangements for Guests to visit an urgent care facility.

If you are having an emergency, Disney will direct you to the nearest hospital and will arrange complimentary transportation (yes, including ambulance rides. As long as a Cast Member calls for you, Disney covers the cost of the ambulance.)

Baby care stations are also located at each Disney Park, separate from first aid. These facilities provide formula, diapers, and additional supplies (for a fee) as well as changing tables, rocking chairs in comfortable rooms in air conditioning, microwaves, refrigerators, and private rooms for nursing.

Plan ahead

If you anticipate that you will be using first aid during your Walt Disney World vacation for a specific medical need, it is best to contact Disney ahead of your trip to confirm the details.

There is not a public first aid phone number that will get you to a park’s first aid location, but if you explain what you are looking for when calling the general Walt Disney World phone number, (407) 939-5277,  a Cast Member will be able to transfer you.

Not sure if a visit to first aid could help you during your trip? It never hurts to stop by and ask a Cast Member! Disney Cast Members are always happy to help, especially when it comes to the safety and comfort of their Guests.
