Disney World Safari Dinner Leaves 30 Sick
More than 30 people have become ill and at least two have been hospitalized after participating in Disney World’s Wild Africa Trek, a 3-hour safari-like excursion which ends with a safari dinner.
In their investigation, the Orange County Health Department (OCHD) found no health inspection violations; however, they have indicated that the illnesses may be linked to the Norwalk virus (which affects people in large public places such as schools or cruise ships.)
