In 2008 we were at Poly and had the same issue. It was gross but we actually have some very comical memories from our daily visitor. They finally had an exterminator come spray the room. They took a couple of nights off our bill. My poor mother almost had a heart attack in the bathroom one night after the roach ran into the shower while she was in it!!!!

There is a way to eliminate palmetto bugs from your hotel room. Seal all the doors and windows and never open them.

I find it kind of interesting that a lot of you are saying this isn't worth a credit, as we received a credit for one night without asking when this happened to us.

I think it is ridiculous to even ask if you should be compensated for what we call water bugs, in your room in FLORIDA.

We had one run across our table near our food when we were eating at Rainforest Cafe at DTD and told them and they sure didn't offer a discount on our bill. They just apologized and kind of acted weird like maybe we brought it with us to try to get something free. We actually smooshed it with a napkin and gave it to them.

We have not been back there since but sure didn't ask for COMPENSATION.

I can't believe what all ppl feel like they should get something free for.

I'm a new member, and I have to ask...is every thread this hostile? I didn't see anywhere that the OP was demanding money back, and everyone is berating her as if she is asking to bring the monorail home. If this is par for the course, I think I'm going to disable my account.

I've been living in Florida for nearly thirteen years and I've only seen ONE. I never thought they were as bad as this thread makes them out to be. All of our Disney visits have been free of them. Hope the OP doesn't have any more visitors!

Unfortunately, yes on some threads people are passionate and over the top. If you love Disney, this is the place to be. You just have to learn to ignore some people and walk away from those threads.

If one Palmetto bug was too much, don't ever hang out at the parks late at night when they start to get quiet. My DD was a College CM at the Studios. She said that they literately come out from everywhere.

I had this happen on a visit in 2011..

I just let them know at the front desk as I was checking out. I wasn't overly concerned since I am from FL and know they are EVERYWHERE... I just wanted to let them know in case they wanted to check it out..

After checking out I went to grab some breakfast at the resort and before I even sat down a manager had called my cell phone and offered to comp 50% of my stay (only 1 night).. I wasn't going to argue but made sure they knew that I wasn't looking for compensation, just wanted them to know.
