Staying at one of Walt Disney World’s resorts is a dream for many, but for one particular guest and her group, that dream turned into a nightmare in a minute.

Redditor u/GeneralInformation82 shared his experience while staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, one of the most luxurious resorts on the property. She comments that on the last morning of their stay in one of the resort’s suites, she and a friend were taking showers in their own showers while their husbands were playing golf and that as she got out of the shower, she heard voices coming from the dining room of the suite.

She comments that she went out in a bathrobe to find two strangers in their suite with no uniforms or equipment and moments later her friend came out in a towel to see those two men as well. The original poster says the men apologized in what she calls “broken English”, saying they were given the keys to the room before quickly leaving the room. Obviously, the two guests were terrified, as the situation was not only uncomfortable but also concerning and dangerous, not to mention that it should never have happened.

The original poster says she and her friend quickly got dressed and ran to the reception to find out what was going on. Apparently two workers were sent to the room to fix the internet. Yet the guest was skeptical as they were not in uniform and had no prior permission to enter the room other than that none of his party had reported any problem with the internet of the complex. She comments that the Cast Members at the front desk were “super nice”, but that a situation like this should never happen. She ends her story by reminding everyone to lock their door.

Fellow Redditors shared the guest’s terror, agreeing that this situation shouldn’t have happened and that both men should have been wearing uniforms or at least escorted or accompanied by another uniformed cast member and with an ID. Others commented on their own experiences at Disney World Resorts, ranging from erroneous wake-up calls from Cast Members opening their rooms and Cast Members entering their rooms to check that “all is well” to handing over room keys. still busy. It would seem that these situations are more common than you might think, which is concerning, especially given the Walt Disney Company’s commitment to making every guest’s stay a magical experience.
