View Full Version : smoker in room next door

We arrived in at POR last sunday late. By Monday night, our room was filled with cigarette smoke. I called the front desk who told me all Disney rooms are smoke free. I replied then you need to tell the people next door. Housekeeping brought us an air purifier. It helped very little. Tuesday night the room was HORRIBLE. I can not describe how horrible the smell was. We had to walk outside to get fresh air. Again we called management who said, " we have addressed the issue with the people next door and they will be leaving very soon. We can move you to an equally nice room." I said fine we can't stay here. Management helped us move our stuff but hubby and I were upset that we had to leave our room instead of kicking these people out. It appears Disney cares more about the returning dollar than the safety of other guests.

Management could smell the stench upon knocking on our door. The smell was coming through the adjoining door. And once opening that door the smoke poured into our room.

What makes us even madder, these people were still in their room on Saturday when we checked out. I understand management didn't want to move smokers to another room to stink up another one but.......... if they are so big on rules then they should have been kicked out. She, management, said the rooms would have to be throughly cleaned and all curtains removed.

Is there a fine for smokers?

There is supposed to be a fine of I think $250. I am not sure if they actually charge it in most cases though.

This, unfortunately, has been my experience as well. I had smokers next door to me at Pop Century who insisted upon smoking directly outside of my room. Security was called several times but nothing was done to rectify the situation.

People can be real jerks. I'm curious if anyone has actually been fined for smoking in the room. I've stayed in many non-smoking hotels and have never had a problem with people breaking the rules and I'm VERY anti-smoking so it would really bother me.

Why is it that people can't behave themselves in Disney World?

I'm pretty sure it's not just at Disney World. Most people carry their bad behavior everywhere they go.
Smoking is a particularly bad habit that some people simply think they're entitled to. We have people in our apartment building that smoke, even though it's a smoke free building. It's the worst in the winter time, because they don't want to smoke out in the cold. When it's slightly warmer they smoke on their balcony which seeps down into our windows if we want to have them open. I'm just glad we're moving away from this building in a couple months. Well... from this town in general.

Hopefully the people got fined for smoking, but they probably still feel justified anyways. I've never had a problem with anybody smoking at a Disney hotel, but if I ever do I will be very frustrated.

We have been visiting WDW for the past 10 years at least once a year and on some occasions 2 times a year. This has the been the first time we ever encountered a smoker next door.

Our baby was suppose to sleep on the trundle bed which pulled out right in front of the adjoining door. She did the first night but the 2nd night there was NO way she could have. It was like the person next door was getting back at us for complaining. Our room had that smoky haze and soured cigarette stench. Our clothing that was hanging there all day had already soaked up the smell. We had to air them out.

ARGH! I just don't understand WDW. Rules are rules right? They won't let me take a stoller up a handicap ramp but a smoker can endanger my safety???? (and yes I had a CM tell me I couldn't take my stroller up the handicap ramp to the train that it would have to be broken down and carried up)

What a lousy situation to be in. Disney needs to be more concerned about their guests who are inconvenienced than about inconsiderate guests who insist on breaking the rules to the detriment of others. Those guests should've been fined and escorted off the property without compensation.

You'd have to check the paperwork you get when you check in - I can't remember what it says. But I think the fine might be the only "teeth" they really have in terms of people breaking the smoking rules. Again, I could be wrong on that - it might say they can kick you out specifically for that reason. And it could be that those people felt that the fine (which is like $275 if I recall right) was worth paying to them.

I think it's not as straightforward to resolve as you might think, which is why they moved you. They wanted to resolve your complaint as quickly as possible, and that's what they did.

It's entirely possible that they WERE trying to get back at you. Unfortunately, immature people are like that.

Wow, another negative post about POR. What the heck is going on at that resort?:confused3

I would write a letter and complain about how you were forced to move, instead of management solving the problem. Did you get the name of the manager you talked to? If so, include that. Maybe if Disney starts to get enough complaints about the managers at POR they will do something.

it is sad. POR used to be my favorite resort. But I don't think I will be returning.:sad2:

I don't think they should have moved you to "an equally nice room"--they should have upgraded you! It sounds like management handled the situation very poorly.:confused:

12-20-2009, 02:58 PM
I don't know what else they could have upgraded me to because we were in building 14 (the closest to main building), first floor, and river view. We moved 6 doors down.

I am furious that these people were allowed to stay in their room!!! I should have called the fire marshall on disney and these people. If this happens again, you bet I will.

While all Disney resorts are supposed to be entirely smoke-free, it makes infinite more sense to leave the violaters in the one room (so as not to risk them polluting up additional/new rooms) and move the offended party. That's what Disney did. THAT'S why they moved the OP instead of the smokers.

They're not going to tell a Guest what action is taken against any other Guest violating the resort rules aka terms of the contract. More than likely, this other party was assessed the cleaning fee every time a violation was noted.

I agree with the above - WDW Resort states that the penalty for smoking in your room or on your balcony is a fine/room cleaning expense. I don't think their policy is to actually evict a guest.

About the connecting rooms - our last stay at the Polynesian, we had two sets of adjoining doors in our room - one by the headboards of the beds, one by the desk/armoire.

I don't believe that is true. People had trouble all the time. And they still do simply because some people can't follow the rules

When we were at POR last Aug, there was a room down the walkway from us that had the room chairs pulled outside, and as far as I could tell, left them out day and night. Did these people ever go to the parks? They were always sitting out there smoking Unfortunatley we had to pass by everytime we wanted to go out to main buildings to food court, etc.
I held my breath every time I passed them. By the 2nd day, when we were at the main building, I lodged a complaint, and it was taken care of immediatley.

Do you know if they simply smoked in their room, or did they move to a smoking area?

My whole thing is Disney made their resorts "smoke free" except for the designated areas. They should then live up to that, or else stop advertising them as such. But, unfortunately, that is typical. Disney is great at having rules, and for a large part, horrible at enforcing those rules.

The smokers were segregated to one building or floor then. There were still some problems when smokers could not get a smoking room.

I think now that smoking is banned pretty much everywhere, non-smokers are more aware of it when they smell it. When I was a kid, my dad smoked at home. I really didn't notice it that much. When he got lung cancer and my mom did not allow him to smoke at home anymore, I became more sensitive to it (you could tell he smoked when he was out, you could smell it on him).

We were in a connecting room at CBR earlier this year & the connecting door was right next to our headboard.

Belle4mygrl
12-20-2009, 08:12 PM
Our headboards were on the same side as the adjoining door. We sneaked a peek in the "smoker's room" while the blinds were open and their headboards were against the same wall.

Isn't this a safety violation? Doesn't Disney get cheaper insurance rates for having nonsmoking rooms? If a fire broke out wouldn't Disney be responsible for allowing these people to stay in the room? I know there are smoke detectors and sprinklers in the room but can you imagine if they failed ! I know I know alot of what ifs .

While all Disney resorts are supposed to be entirely smoke-free,...Many companies along with Disney make this false claim, if their truly smoke free, there would be no smoking designated areas in the parks or resorts.

Its funny that before the smoking ban at resorts no-one had a problemActually, Disney moved to respond to the demands of their guest who were requesting non-smoking rooms beyond the number of rooms that were available at the time, coupled with complaint levels by those assigned to smoking rooms when no non-smoking rooms were available. It is also cheaper to manage operational cost within smoke free facilities.

I think families that encounter these types of situations should be respectful to Disney Staff while also letting them know this is unacceptable and the incident has lessen your families magical vacation as it is not the responsibility to manage their property. Disney needs to manage their property and standards. I have stayed at Marriott resorts which are truly smoke free and have never encountered an issue. Like some others have stated...Disney should provide some level of good will to resolve...new room with upgrade view, etc.

Earlier this month I ran into this problem at Pop Century. The people in the 2 rooms next to us were smoking outside the rooms and our room immediately smelled of smoke. I called security to complain and within 15 minutes someone knocked on their doors and talked to them. We never had another problem, but if it had continued, I couldn't have stayed in the room - the smell was horrible. I guess I got lucky that security handled it and the other guests complied.

It is also cheaper to manage operational cost within smoke free facilities.Actually, before the smoking ban in the resort rooms/buildings, less than 20% of rooms were designated as smoking. Since slightly more than 20% of Americans, and a higher rate of international visitors, smoke, it's more unusual than not that a non-smoker would be assigned to a smoking-acceptable room.

I beleive they fine people who smoke in their rooms 200 or, so bucks. WDW is going to do what is in their best interest. In your case, move you, and tell them to stop, maybe fine them. They could have very well stopped after you moved rooms, but I doubt it. It's not in WDW best interest to kick out someone who brakes the rules. First, they would have to give that person a refund, second, what if the person flew, and can't catch a plane for another week?, and finally the leave mad, and go home, and spread the word to family, and friends. WDW would rather just move you, and deal with the people who are smoking.

It pisses me off to no end when people smoke where they are not supposed to. Just today, my aunt lit up a stupid ciggarette right next to dd2, made me mad. Dh insist he is going to smoke on our balcony at wdw, but he will not, or I will kick him out of our room!

It sucks you had to go through that, but I can understand why disney didn't kick those people out.

We recently stayed at Paradise Pier and the Disneyland Hotel at DLR. These so-called smoke free hotels allowed people to smoke just about everywhere outside. There were ashtrays galore in the pool area at the PP. :eek: It was totally disgusting.:mad::mad:

If you're going to advertise yourselves as a smoke free facility, then have the guts to make it 100% smoke free. Other hotels manage it, why can't Disney?:confused3

This is just one of the reasons we'll never return to these hotels. (The DL Hotel is one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in anyway, anywhere in the world).

I don't think it's all luck. I think it has to do with the management team at each resort, and how they choose to enforce the rules and take care of these kinds of situations. I've stayed at Disney resorts when they have had management teams that didn't appear to care all that much about what was going on, and it showed. It was also very apparent when the management team changed - it's like night and day.

From all the complaints I've been reading about POR (not just this issue) I would say that their management team either needs to get their act together or be replaced. They obviously don't have a good handle on the resort and what it takes to keep the guests happy, so they don't go home and post on websites like the DIS about their problems with the resort. I've stayed at POR and had great vacations, but until I stop reading so many negative posts, POR won't be on my short list of possible resort stays any time soon.

I'm a smoker and I agree with all of you. We recently stayed at AKV back in March and there were some people smoking on their balconies. I'll admit..that I thought about it, but realized that I might get in my in-laws in trouble..room was in their name(DVC owners) and I didn't want that to happen. PLus..I seen some other people go down to smoke and I decided to join.

It was fun!! I got a beer or two from the bar and then went outside to have a smoke. It was peaceful and relaxing.

As a matter of fact, the very first time I went down, I got lost finding the smoking area. I went as far away from the people, only to have the secuirty guard find me. He was extremely nice about it. He noticed that I had been looking for about ten mins where to go. If I would've walked about 500 more feet, I would've found it!!LOL!!!:rotfl: But, he was very accomidating and said that at least once..sometimes twice..a day, he has to do that. He said that he just didn't seen the reason to get mad a people..especially if you don't know that it's their first time or not being there at that resort. I thanked him for his kindness and had no trouble the rest of the time.

To the OP: I'm sorry about what happened because I'd be mad,too!!! But, not all of us smokers are bad people. I pretty much know where all the smoking places are now and in most cases, I just wait to get back to the resort and go smoke there. So..I apologize on behalf of the "good" smokers everywhere!!!;) We're not all evil!!! LOL!!!

Is the fine $250 per day if you continue smoking or just $250 for the entire stay? If you are fined $250 no matter how many times you smoke in the room, some people might just decide to keep smoking after they've been caught since they're going to have to pay anyway.

I believe the fine is "per incident" but the offender (or anyone) still could have decided that it was worth it to them to to pay it up until the point that it really hurt them before changing their behavior.

I could be wrong on that though, because I think the paperwork calls it a "cleaning fee".

We had this happen at Pop in May 2008. Our first morning, we were getting ready and the bathroom just filled with cig smoke. I don't like to make a fuss, but hubby was upset and told mgmt. They brought in an air purifier and the room was fresh and clean when we returned from the parks...until the next morning!! My hubby complained again, and since we were on the 2nd floor, they couldn't pinpoint who it was so they offered to move us. At that point I was upset because we were ready to leave for DHS, had two kids in the stroller ready to go. But DH and MIL went with mgmt, grabbed all of our stuff and got us moved in about 15 minutes-to POOLSIDE (we'd already paid preferred)!! I loved it! No more smoke and I will request poolside from now on! :love:

Wow, that's a rotten situation. But I think Disney handled it well. They took your complaint, checked it out and helped you move to another room.
OP said it herself, I can understand Disney not moving voilator, why smoke up another room.
Maybe they could have gotten a nicer room but it's not like it was Disney's fault.
I don't understand the people here who find this a reason to complain about Disney.
We have no idea what Disney did the the violator and OP problem was solved.

I am the orginial OP. I find it a reason to complain because it is a safety issue and rule breaking. The safety aspect : catching the room on fire and my family is right next door and then moved 6 doors down while these people remained in their room still posing a safety threat to other guests. Rule breaking: I am sure Disney pays a lesser insurance premium for nonsmoking rooms. PLus, there is designated areas for smokers. I am a cancer survivor , five years now, and I want to remain that way.

Absolutely. They can't stop at putting it on the brochure so it looks nice. People will break rules, and when they do, they should be punished. Who cares if they don't like it, or say bad things about Disney? This thread shows that it works both ways, and there's something to be said about doing the right thing regardless of what people in the wrong might spread around.

In my opinion, they need to do more than slap perpetrators on the wrist while inconveniencing the already-inconvenienced. Notify guests of the rules and the consequences, and evict them without compensation when they break them. I couldn't care less about their inconvenience, no matter how significant; that's the price you pay for doing something you've been given fair warning not to do.

Disney, go out of your way to protect responsible and considerate guests, and it will do more good than harm to your reputation.

Note, please, I'm not talking about the 43 square mile Walt Disney World Resort; I thought "all Disney resorts" was specific enough - especially since this is the Resorts board.My point is that as long as smoking is allowed on resort or park property their not smoke free. Its misleading as there are resorts in the US that are truly smoke free. Their not putting forth the committment or effort to be a true smoke-free resort or park. There are clearly things outside the control of Disney that includes its guest and weather (wind, inversions, etc), but their policies allow smoking on property. Disney cannot control where the smoke goes or ends up. Disney is actually a smoke designated destination, not smoke free.

I wouldn't give all smokers a bad name. Most of us follow the rules, and only smoke in the designated areas. Even though I smoke, I would be highly upset that my room smelled like smoke. I can't sleep or eat around the smell of smoke. I also would not want to be the one accused of smoking in my room, when I don't. Disney should be enforcing their rules, and I would have demanded more than just being moved down the way.

Not much point in going round and round on this.

If you have any questions on smoking policy at Disney resorts, you can ask 'em here:
