Vacation From Hell. Anybody Have One?

Sat Jan 13, 2007 2:32 am

I was just wondering if anyone has ever had a vacation from hell. I'm not talking just about a cancelled flight, but a vacation where everything was so screwed up that you wished you were home.

I had one a year ago. Took the family down to Disney World in Orland0 for a week during winter break. We booked the tickets early and at my wie's insistence we didn't stay in Disney itself but out in Kisseemee. I am leaving out the airline and hotel chain we stayed at on purpose.

Anyway, we showed up at the airport to find our flight canceled and the other flights were all booked up. We wound up having to fly into Tampa and drive back to the Orlando area. We dealt with it. I called the rental car agency to change the reservation and luckily enough it was OK.

When we finally arrived at the hotel the suite we booked wasn't available, it was given away since we were so late. There was a suite available starting the next night and we would be moved into it so no big problem. The following day after moving hotel rooms, off to Disney we go. We were there about a half hour when it started to rain. Downpour actually all day. We made the best of it. We returned to the Hotel that evening to change out of our drenched clothes and go to dinner. Had a nice time at dinner but returned to the hotel to find the room ransacked. Everything stolen. Camcorder, camera's, the kids MP3 players all gone. They even took a brand new pair of sneakers I bought for the trip. Spent the rest of the night with police, hotel managers, filling out forms etc.

Rather than go on and on lets just say the rest of the trip didn't get any better. Weather was rotten, wife was pissed off about being robbed etc.

Couldn't wait to get home.

Anyone have a similar trip from hell??
