Disappointing photos show what Disney resorts look like in real life, according to guests

Disney parks are rightfully known for their innovation, attention to detail, cleanliness.

It stands to reason that Disney hotels are the same way. Some guests, however, report that there are some Disney hotels they’d rather not stay at again.

From dirty pools to ageing rooms, keep scrolling to see photos of Disney resorts and hotels that guests say were less than ideal.

The rooms at Disney resorts are usually clean, well-decorated, and all-around nice places to stay.

Staying in an official Disney hotel might be the best choice for you and your family.

But some customers describe rooms as overly cheesy.

Like the parks, the hotels and resorts have a reputation for being innovative and magical. Just look at this indoor pond and bridge at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge.

You can see just how much Disney has changed here.

However, not all hotels are updated regularly. Few people may remember this Jack-in-the-Box from “Fantasia 2000.”

You can see where Jack-in-the-Box comes from here.

The typical Disney magic extends to your room — you might walk in to see a towel creature.

Or you might walk in to find a creature on your towel, as one guest said they did.

The bathrooms seem perfectly fine …

But one customer pointed out this bathroom didn’t have a door.

Apparently there’s a door to the toilet and shower, but it could still be disconcerting to see a curtain where a door should be.

Here, the cabinets look normal.

Sometimes, though, guests have pointed out that the rooms show some wear and tear.

The grounds and pathways look perfectly manicured, just as they do at Disney World.

Part of the reason why Disney properties always look so clean: You’re never more than 30 steps away from a trash can.

But sometimes there’s a potential breakdown in cleanup — one guest said they came across a stray microwave.

Every Disney hotel has pools, which can be extravagant, like this one at Coronado Springs.

This guest, however, was less than thrilled by the cleanliness of the pool at the Port Orleans Resort.

“The pool is loaded with dirt and debris on top of the water and on the bottom.” – Yelp user Glenn W.
