The Park is not looking its best.

Disney Cleanliness Takes a Dip

Usually, Walt Disney World is celebrated for its exceptional standards of cleanliness and Guest satisfaction. Walt Disney himself believed that cleanliness was one of the things that separated Disney from its competitors, and when you walk through the Parks, usually it is impeccably well maintained. This is why Guests are shocked to see some of the buildings deteriorate in this way.

Any place that is hot and humid is not immune to mold growth; these conditions provide the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew to thrive. Orlando, Florida, has this climate, making it easy for several attractions and buildings to fall victum to the insidious growth of black mold. The presence of black mold is particularly alarming as it can cause severe health issues, especially in individuals with respiratory problems and weakened immune systems.

Now, Twitter user @bioreconstruct has posted photos showing what appears to be black mold in the back of the attraction ‘The Seas With Nemo & Friends.’
