Two female Guests recently had a terrifying experience at one of the most beloved Hotels on property.
A Guest took to Reddit a couple of days ago to share her scary experience at Disney’s and to stress to fellow Guests the importance of latching their Hotel room doors when staying at or any other .
A Guest who goes by the name “GeneralInformation82” on Reddit shared a scary experience she and her friend had last week during their stay at Disney’s . She says that she and her husband were on a with her friend and her friend’s husband. The couples had separate bedrooms in a suite at the lodge.
On the last morning of their visit, both ladies had taken showers in their respective bathrooms while their husbands were out playing golf. And as the Guest stepped out of the shower, she thought she heard people talking in the foyer and dining room area of the suite.
“I came out in a robe to find two unknown men in our suite,” she posted. “They were not in uniform or carrying equipment.”
She says that it was at that time that her friend came out of her bedroom wrapped in a towel, as she had also just stepped out of the shower.
“The two men in broken English told us they were given keys to the room and they were sorry,” she posted.

The Guest said the men left the suite almost immediately, but she and her friend were terrified, so they got dressed quickly and raced to the front desk of the hotel to see why the two men were in their hotel room.
“Come to find out they were two workers coming to work on the internet,” she explained. “Again, they were not in uniform and we were not given a prior ok to come in. Although the front desk was super nice, something like this should never happen.”
She said she shared her experience to remind other Guests at to be sure they latch the doors to their hotel rooms anytime they close the door.
After several responses to her post, the female Guest who shared the story of the unknown intruders in their suite clarified her post with an edit, saying
“We are not concerned with compensation. All I wanted to do was give a heads up and reminder to latch your doors. If the two men in question would have announced themselves, been in uniform, had ID or equipment, been able to tell us why they were there (I even asked in the language they spoke), or if we had even called to say there was an issue with the internet, this all would be a nonissue.
None of that happened. It was a failure on Disney’s part to make keys to an occupied room to a third party without [notifying the Guests staying in the room].”
