Disney Vacation Part One

I'm going to do a few post on our Disney World vacation. I'll try to give you as many details as I can Mel for your trip. Tip one don't stay at the hotel we stayed at. We stayed at the Coronado Springs Resort on sight at Disney. The only positive thing about this hotel is the pool. It is just beautiful as you can see from the pics. During the day water went down the pyramid and at night they shut off the water and a fire would light up the top. It was beautiful. They even had a playground next to the pool for the kids to go on a dig. I'm so mad that I didn't get any pics of the playground. It was great. It was built into one side of the pyramid. Where to start to tell you about the hotel and room. I have always been told Disney Cast members will be over the top when they meet with you and help. Ummmm not the case. We told our cast member this was our first visit and he was like ok. He acted like we were bothering him when we asked him where our room was located (the resort is HUGE). Then they give you these cards for everyone in your party. You use them to get in your room, parks and to pay for your meals. We didn't know that since this was our first visit. He let me know in a nasty tone you just use it like a credit card. Then we get to our room that wasn't ready at the time promised for check-in. We walk into a room that stinks and they are trying to cover it up with vanilla. All of our belongings smelled just awful by the end of the visit. Then we pulled back the covers on the bed only to find not one, two or even four hairs. We found lots of hair and crumbs in the beds. On the first day of our visit I just wanted to go home and get my money back. I was thankful for a beautiful pool. We didn't spend much time in our room thankfully. We left everday at 8:15 am and usually didn't return until 11 pm. My biggest tip again don't every stay at Coronado Springs.

Bobbi, if I was you I would write a letter to Walt Disney World explaining all that you said in your blog here.... I've heard of many, many people being sent special things etc. because of a not happy experience. Hey, it couldn't hurt thats for sure. Anytime I have been WDW people go over the top to make your stay wonderful. Sounds like you should report this, because I know they wouldn't be happy that a customer wasn't happy.
Anywho, so love reading of your adventures!! I love WDW!!! :-)
BTW - I'm a friend of Melonie! LOL
