    My kids ages 7 & 5 and myself have "severe" asthma and we need to take breathing treatments once a day. Do we need to take our own nebulizer machine or are these available at a first aid station? 15 days to go!

    Hi Catherine, 

    Since both of your sons and yourself have severe asthma requiring a daily breathing treatment, I would recommend that you bring a portable nebulizer with you into the theme parks. The First Aid Stations do not have nebulizers for use.  They will store your nebulizer for you if you do not want to carry it around.  If you do this, I would make sure that you have your inhalers with you as you may not be near the First Aid Station when you might need your nebulizer.  You can also go to the Baby Care Center areas which are usually adjacent to First Aid.  This is a very relaxing place for kids, and they even have a television set that plays Disney movies while they are having a treatment.  Both the First Aid Stations and Baby Care Centers are noted on the park maps and a Cast Member can also show you the way.  I know you will have a magical vacation in just two weeks!
