FLORIDA -- My family and I just returned home from our week long trip to Disney and I am sorry to say that it was one of the most miserable weeks of our lives. I used to be one of the biggest Disney fans ever-my house,yard,ect all decorated with Disney-however I am now so disenchanted it is all coming down. First of all Disney is so so money hungry that they over pack every resort,park,and dining area so that it is not possible to even breathe let alone enjoy yourself!Most of the cast members try to help people but they are so over worked by to many guests that they are just miserable. After booking 6 months in advance we were told our room was not ready and we would just have to walk around with all of our carry on and children in 100 degree heat and when we tried to ask how long this would take we were told no one knew and the looks and tones told us no one cared. It was like we were rude to even ask.
We paid 7000.00 To stay in a Disney resort and for us that is a lot of money but once you get there you are treated like cattle and packed in so tight you can not even take a breath. They tell you that if you stay in the resort you do not need a car because they provide all transportation however you often have to sit in the heat for an hour to wait for a bus that is so jam packed with people that you can not get on and the drivers are so overwhelmed that all they say is oh well just wait for the next one-they say you can use fast pass to get on rides but they do not let you know that all fast pass booths are closed most of the time and even if u find one to use u have to wait for hours and you can not use it on any other rides in the meantime.
They tell you if you stay in a Disney resort that you get extra park hours but they do not tell you that the transportation system is so booked that you can not get a bus to or from the park without being in misery for what seems like hours-they have you pay extra to get tickets to the water parks but they do not let you know that the good water park(blizzard beach)is closed by 11:00 almost every day because it is filled to capacity-they show you pictures of the wonderful pools at the resorts but they do not tell you that the pools are so packed that you can not move if you dare to get in-they tell you about all the extra services they offer like internet access but they do not tell you that you have to pay 10.00 Every 24 hours if you want to use it(are you kidding me.
Doesn't Disney have enough money)even the Ramada offers free internet-one night we actually got in mgm for extra magic hours and waited forever to get on a ride only to be told at the front that we could not get on cause we did not have a special wristband???. Everywhere you go at Disney you see families fighting because they are just miserable-how do you tell a 7 year old that he can not get on the rides or do the things he has been dreaming about because everything is so packed you can not even get close to it.I am not stupid I knew that there would be lots of people and waits but this was so insane you can not imagine-i think even chicken houses have more space than we had.It hurts me to say these things cause I have loved and dreamed about Disney forever and I know that they are in business to make money but I have never been anyplace in my life that shows as little concern about people and as much concern about making a buck as Disney-if I ever hear of anyone planning a trip to Disney I will do everything I can to talk them out of it and save the money because my family would have been better off to take the 7000.00 And flush it down the toilet.
I could go on and on giving more examples but you get the picture-my family has a new saying-Disney where misery comes true!
