Walt Disney World to Provide Free Mosquito Repellent to Guests for Zika Prevention

As the threat of Zika approaches Orlando, Walt Disney World will start providing free insect repellent for guests visiting the park.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott asked businesses throughout the state to help in any way they can in stopping the spread of Zika. One of the ways to prevent the spread of the virus is to encourage the use of insect repellent.

Disney will have various types of mosquito repellent at its theme parks, Disney Springs and the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex. Hotel rooms will also have aerosol bug spray. The resort will have signs informing people they can get the protection.

“In an abundance of caution, we are accelerating preventative efforts throughout our property, including providing complimentary insect repellent to our Guests along with helpful guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention,” Disney said in a statement.
