BAY LAKE, Fla. (WESH) — A couple is suing Disney claiming they were exposed to bedbugs while staying at a Disney hotel.

In the suit, which seeks $75,000 in damages, the couple claims the bedbugs went home with them to Louisiana and have caused ongoing problems.

The couple said that during a stay last April at the All-Star Movies Resort their family began experiencing skin irritation, redness, itching and swelling, which resulted in trouble sleeping, pain and distress.

The couple said that when they returned home they realized they’d been bitten by bedbugs.

The lawsuit claims that when the family called Disney, employees confirmed the existence of bedbugs in the room in which they had stayed.

The suit claims an exterminating company confirmed the existence of bedbugs in the family’s Louisiana home and the family had to vacate the house while it was treated for bugs.

In connection with the professional treatment of their home, the family had to dispose of furniture and personal property, at great expense, the suit said.

In the suit, the family accuses Disney of not disclosing the presence of bedbugs and failing to keep the room clean.
