Everything from food and drink to souvenirs to tickets has seen price raises, making it more difficult to visit with every cent added.

Everyone knows that half the Disney magic comes with staying on property because the magic continues even when they come home from a Disney Park. Unfortunately, that means that half the cost of a truly great Disney vacation must go into staying at a Disney Resort hotel.

Deciding between a deluxe Resort or a value Resort can be difficult because even a Walt Disney World value Resort is considered expensive for many.

In this video, TikTok user @francisdominiic recounts his harrowing experience checking into Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort. After being told their room was ready, they checked in only to find housekeeping inside. It turns out it wasn’t ready at all!

Then, as they’re taken to another room, they find out that other Guests are already staying in that room! By the third try, the room was finally ready and vacant. However, we can’t imagine how much time was wasted while they were sent to two different rooms!
