While Disney World does its best at keeping the theme parks and hotel rooms clean, some spots fall in between the cracks.

In a Reddit Thread discussing the worst thing that happened to Guests while at Walt Disney World Resort that Disney corrected the issue, one Guest talked about their experience at a Disney hotel.

“The room next door had bed bugs. We watched the men go in with hazmat suits and spray all the chemicals. It was so incredible to us that they didn’t even warn us. The fumes were coming through the wall so bad we were coughing. The hotel did move us after we asked but I was NOT happy. They should’ve moved us before the fumes. And if you’ve ever done a runDisney weekend, you know how early those alarms go off in am so moving all our stuff room to room was not ideal. Needless to say, after that experience POFQ gives me the ick.

The Guest said that they contacted Disney and that, when it happened, Disney gave them a three-night voucher to make up for the issue.

Fast forward to when we got home from FL and I told my travel agent what happened after she asked how the trip was. She encouraged me to email Disney and let them know my experience so i did. I was surprised to receive an email back with a 3 night hotel voucher and a very apologetic manager agreeing that it was not handled properly.”
