The manure theory does make sense, there were several times last week at the MK where it smelled like they might have just used some. It was really very upsetting that they were in many of the restaurants across all the parks.

McDonalds is coming to Disney. It's the Lord of the Fries promotion.

Nasty! I cannot stand flies (currently on the search for one now, ugh). Can't even imagine trying to eat with all of those around.

Yea this manure theory sounds like it could be the reason behind it. I could see it being very cost effective, but if this is the outcome it is hardly worth it. I can see it not only hindered my trip but quite a few others. Hopefully this gets rectified soon

We also noticed it! I just assumed it was because it rained so much the week before and then got hot. They didn't seem as bad when we first got there and it was cooler, we noticed it most last Thurs. and then thru the weekend.

Well this is not good news. Our first ever trip is just two weeks away. I am from the south and can deal with some bugs, but this sounds much worse.

Any chance these are the cicadas that much of the east coast has been anticipating? I haven't been following that story much, but I do know they are supposed to be coming out soon (if not already) and they will be most prevalent on the east coast.

The manure theory is also very plausible.

Ugh...this thread has me really concerned. We arrive in six days and my kids will completely lose it if they are constantly surrounded by insects. We have a lot of TS meals booked and I will be very upset if we are bothered by flies inside the restaurants, as some of those meals are $$$!

But seriously, I'm sure the problem is being addressed. There is no possible way that they're unaware of it. Even though our biggest problem was trying to eat outdoors, they were inside everywhere also, just not as many.

As someone who was there two weeks ago and again this past weekend, I can say for sure the problem is progressive. I noticed it and mentioned the increase in flies two weeks ago, but they were spread out. Now they are in huge swarms. I was only at MK and Epcot this weekend so can't speak to swarms at other parks.

I am a life long camper and lived on a farm up north and can honestly say I've never seen flies so concentrated before. Something is luring them. The fertilizer story sounds plausible. I hope it is just that easy.

No, Cicadas are much larger. These are tiny, well....flies.

I am always telling people that it constantly amazes me how there is such a low amount of bugs to be seen at Disney. Sometimes, my family and I laugh and swear that there is a giant mesh dome that keeps them out. This sounds disgusting and I seriously hope they figure out where the source is.

Ugh, I hope this problem gets addressed soon.

I refuse to eat anywhere swarmed with flies.

My husband, a former pest exterminator, would be beyond pissed if he had to endure any of this on his vacation.

If I were onsite now and had to deal with this, I'd be cancelling all my ADRs, renting a car, and going off site to eat, and would bring off site food back to my room. Yuck.

I really don't think this is a WDW issue. I was in Orlando over the weekend and noticed the flies everywhere, and I did not step foot onto WDW property...

We arrive this Sunday and I'm concerned about this. Any suggestions for how to deal with the flies? Obviously, we won't try to eat outside. HELP!
