This strain of norovirus is especially resistant and extremely contagious.
OP said her daughter was diagnosed with a "super flu." I have no idea what she is referring to...?

Does she mean Norovirus or other equally challenging stomach bug, which is not the flu or did she mean influenza which is respiratory?

Either of those could seriously dehydrate a child, so I am glad she took her to the hospital as well.

Hoping OP and her daughter are feeling better today!

The Sydney norovirus is considered a "super flu". Unfortunately, we can "catch it" more than once.

Influenza CAN have gi symptoms as well. The current strains that are wrecking havoc in the US (not all of them but the ones causing the majority of the cases) have been respiratory in nature. But we also have to remember this poster is from Canada and Vancouver at that which means she comes from a city with many visitors and a population from an area of the world where some of the most intense strains of flu have started (bird flu, pig flu, I can go on and on at many of the novelle strains that have started in Asia). I am by no means saying that is what she has, but the fact should not be ignored that she likely has more chance to exposure to intense and a variety strains than someone coming from Iowa who doesn't live in such a diverse cultural local. No one will know EXACTLY what she has until cultures are done and unless they are, then what she has is pure speculation on everyone INCLUDING THE DOCTOR'S part.

Norovirus is not a flu. They are two separate illnesses. Sydney norovirus is called a winter vomiting bug, but it is not the flu.

Just wondering what exactly the OP's daughter was diagnosed with - respiratory (flu) or gastro (noro, tummy bug)?

Update. Thanks for so many kind messages. I appreciate it.
Here is where we are at.
Disney got us into AKL club level for $200 a night emergency rate. This way I have easy access to things.
But...... Only 2 nights.
I just talked to them and after a half hour of them seeing what they could do, the only thing was if I want to pay $3000 for 5 more nights. Ummm no I'm not going to pay $3000 to sit in a room and watch my child vomit. So they have worked magic and got us transferring to por tomorrow for $750 taxes in for 5 more days. I refuse to leave disney property. They have been so good to us.
My daughter still has a 103 fever as her body fights this infection.
My breakfast/lunch consists of club snacks they let me load a bag with.
I just want her better and to get her home, but one day at a time.

Thank goodness your daughter is being cared for and you have a place to stay. I thought she was admitted to hospital, but now I am not so sure?

Take care, Tiger

Goodness!!! Hope you are able to get some rest soon yourself. I am guessing they are fully aware of the situation so they can sanitize the rooms after you are moved. Be careful what you touch yourself. The report on the most resent virus was that it remains active for much longer than the regular flu on whatever is touhed. I really hope your DD starts feeling better very soon!

So glad Disney is working their magic for you. So sorry your poor little one is still so sick. You know, once you get settled into POR, I know there is a grocery delivery service in Orlando. Maybe you could order stuff like pedialyte or gatorade, and foods she can keep down like jello, popsicles, broth, plus food for yourself. If there is a silver lining to all this, it's at least you were at Disney. I doubt any other theme park/resort would take such good care of you! Hugs from your new friend Jill! Here is the link to grocery delivery: http://www.gardengrocer.com/

Thank you. I will order that stuff. I feel so lost. I'm used to planning, etc and just being tossed into this has been stressful. We just want to be at home but she is not strong enough to travel. I think we have to go back to hospital for more iv fluids and antibiotics. I'm in contact with doctors now. Again I am so glad we are insured.

Wow. Being sick far away from home isn't anything anybuddy wants to deal with. Sounds like you're hangin in there as best you can. Hope the fever breaks soon, and that you'll be able to get some sleep when your DD does.

Oh FYI the room we were in before now is shut down on deep clean and quarantine for a while. They do take precautions.

So sorry you and your daughter are having to go through this. We've had a few short term stomach bugs while at Disney but nothing close to what you are going through. Hope she recovers quickly and that you stay healthy!

Should've referred to it as "super bug"...my mistake. I had it TWICE last month. My infant grandson was briefly admitted, due to the virus and an infection. I also had other health issues, that were aggravated by the virus. It's why, I'm sensitive to contagious folks running around. Fortunately, we get flu shots, so that has not been an issue.

YW. Good idea to get her back to the hospital. I sure hope she is better and stronger before you fly home. If she wasn't so contagious, I would look into seeing if Disney could arrange a special meet with 1 or 2 of her favorite characters. Maybe by the end of the week, they could do this for you. Keep us posted-we care.
