Walt Disney World First Aid
If you experience a minor medical issue in the middle of your magical Walt Disney World vacation, don’t panic. First Aid centers in the theme parks and water parks are there to help. And we’re here to share what you can expect when you stop in.
First Aid centers are staffed with nurses and are available during regular park operating hours. Guests in need can find basic medical necessities. These typically include:
- over-the-counter pain medications
- eye drops
- contact lens solution
- over-the-counter allergy aids
- lip balm
- hand sanitizer
- medication for digestive issues
If you need a single dose of a medication or just a bandage or two, you will receive these free of charge. For full-size products (i.e. a full box of allergy medication), you’ll need to make a purchase.
Note that First Aid centers and Baby Care Centers are typically located in the same general area and share for-purchase products (including diapers and baby food).

First Aid centers also provide services related to your prescription medication. They can:
- store your prescriptions that require refrigeration
- provide sharps containers for hypodermic needles
