Called POP about Bedbug Rumors

I was online tonight and came across some reports of bedbugs at Pop Century on Bedbug threads. First off, I know bedbud sites are crazy. Secondly, I am a Disney fanatic. I have stayed at POP before and LOVED it. That is why I am taking my children there again. That being said, my curiousity got the best o fme and I called the front desk to see what they would say about it. The gentleman whom I talked with was very courteous and told me that there is no type of bedbug problem and that he would even connect me wiht housekeeping to easy my mind and so that they could tell me how they "keep bedbugs out". He was very magical and sweet, even with me asking this awkward question. TRUTHFULLY, does anyone know anything about this so-called situation?

There have been quite a few DIS members posting on the official POP FAQ thread who are currently at POP and/or just returned and NONE have said anything about this. And believe me, if there was any kind of "situation" it would be ALL over the DIS.

I did a Google search for posts on any site for the last 2 months about "Pop Century" and "Bed Bugs" and didn't see anything.

FWIW, there's no way to call the front desk of a Disney resort. Even when you're on site and press the Front Desk button you are routed to an offsite (often out of state) call center. I once thought I was talking to the OKW front desk, but later found out I was wrong. Unless someone there calls you, there's no way to get to them.

The only way to talk to someone at the Front Desk is physically walk there and speak to someone.

Otherwise, any button you push on your in-room phone is routed to a Disney call center somewhere. Aren't the call centers in Tampa and Oklahoma, I think?

Check the *corners* of the beds, pulling up any duvets/bedspreads, topsheet, blanked, fitted sheet, or liner, and inspect the mattress along the corner seams. If they're clean, you've done due diligence that should give you about as high a % level of confidence you can reasonably get that there are no critters.

Mattress corners/seams are where they are most likely to show up.

As for me, I keep my suitcase(s) on a chair or table and change out of it directly, not bothering with the in-room dresser. Just never felt comfortable using them, even before the bb issue arose. Blame that on my mom, who could write a million-dollar sanitation book on "How To Inspect The Absolute Crap Out Of Your Hotel Room And Come Out Staying In Your Car."
