  • Just take normal healthy precautions (like washing hands, etc.) and go have some fun! Imagine how empty the place will be with everyone else staying home because of the scare.

  • Three is too young for Disney; if you can get a refund then cancel.

    My only health concern is the air on planes that is constantly recirculated. I get sick every time a fly because I have no choice but to breathe in everyone else's germs.

  • Go ahead! Wash hands and take hand sanitizer for when soap and water is not easily obtainable. You might consider taking or renting a stroller anyway. We did for my girls who were even older than 3 and it was the best thing we did. She would be contained in her own space and also will not get as cranky because she is tired. Take a break mid day if you can and rest. Everyone will enjoy it more if you don't try to cram to much into one day. She may not remember some of the trip, but she will love the experience as it is happening. Take lots of pictures and put them together in an album for her to look at often and remember. Have fun!

  • Disneyland or Disney World? I'd be cautious of Cali right now

  • I live in CA. I have passes to disneyland and we are not worried. Just wash her hands or use a hand sanitizer (without triclosan : )

    I am sure you will have a great time and nothing will happen. I mean you could get it at the store or at school.
