no issues here either. depending on the sites you're looking at -- be careful! sometimes off property hotels will go onto other websites and write up horrible reviews in an attempt to get people to stay off disney property. your best bet is to read reviews on here or allears.net - any mention of bed bugs will certainly be found at either sites.

We stayed in March and had absolutely no problems. We've stayed there every year since 2006, and I think I've heard this rumor at least once a year with no real stories to back it up.

Have a great time!

Nope. But you may not want to go to Hollister and try on clothing there!!! It would seem that bed bugs are now taking up residence in retail areas...not just hotels.
Any hotel/resort is going to stand a chance of having bed bugs. Nothing to do with cleanliness...it's all about the guest in that room. They may have had their luggage put next to other luggage carrying bed bugs..so, their luggage now has the little critters on them. And then the room will have them.

Be informed and look for any trace before settling into your room. That's about all you can do.

We were bitten by something this past May at POP. Disney investigated after we left and said no bed bugs. Maybe it was spiders? Not sure. We were not happy with how POP handled things though....we went to the front desk a few times asking for someone to please look at our room. Nope. They gave us sting cream and cold packs from the first aid kit at the front desk. I would have liked for them to handle it better while we were there. So, we won't stay at POP again (due to lack of service). We found service lacking in all areas at POP. But, that's just us. I honestly wouldn't worry so much about the bed bugs - you could get those anywhere.

No problems for us last December/January. Never had a bug problem at Pop, now management on the other hand is a major disaster at Pop. They are the worst.

It was quite a few (enough to drive us crazy at least!). And we swelled up (that's why we got the ice packs). I would say, if I had to guess, that we each had anywhere from 15-20 on our legs and 10-20 everywhere else on our bodies. Mostly the bites were on our legs. I agree with what the other poster said - bad management. Like I said, that is why we aren't staying at POP. Let us know what you decide!

We have stayed at POP in 2007 and 2009, and so have both sets of our parents and we never had a problem. I was happily surprised how clean POP was. We are staying at POR this time b/c we have 5 people, and I actually wish we could still stay at POP b/c I have read people complain about cleanliness at POR and have also read some bed bug stories about it online. I am very freaked out about bed bugs, too. Make sure you read how to check your room before you settle in (leave luggage in hall, pull back sheets and check seams of mattresses for clear bugs or black/red spots). You can get them on planes, too. So gross!
