Thank you for starting this thread! I swear, I thought I was the only one who was THAT picky!

What is so hard about comforters with nice, tasteful, duvet covers over them? Who on earth has those hideous polyester bedspreads in their homes? Why would anyone want to spend a week in a room with TWO of them??

I have no pictures, but the ones at the CR PRIOR to the renovation were the UGLIEST BEDSPREADS EVER. They had all these bright bold colors, and crazy nonsensical geometric shapes all over them. OMG. Blech.....

I have stayed at CR and BC lately, partially (ok, mostly) due to the bedding...

I guess I must be weird then, because I like the POFQ and WL ones.

Coronado Springs stepped it up ....the original was so "fugly"

Craftsman Revival The cover looks so out of place, and it doesn't match anything.

I love this! I hate ugly bedspreads too! I had no idea CSR updated, I love it! WL needs something new as well.

I agree about the ones at Port Orleans FQ, but (maybe due to my adoration for the resort), I like the ones for the Wilderness Lodge. :P They fit with the theme for the resort. The ones for the Contemporary were disgusting though! And the sinks were weird, and they never drained... Yeah. Before they renovated that, o was not a fan!

Love this entertaining thread!

CSR 2007 ~ perhaps not hideous, but drab and ugly imo:

Too funny! I've always thought maybe I was a little crazy b/c there are some WDW resorts that I have zero desire to stay in due to the hideous bedspreads. POFQ has always been one of those, lol.

One of the many reasons I am bummed CSR was sold out for our upcoming week is this Pop spread:



Of course, they might have remodelled our Pop room, in which case we'd have this new ugliness:



Had to snag both photos off the net. I tried to avoid pictures with the bedspread in them. Why does value have to mean "I want to sleep in a room with a bedspread designed for a three year old?"

I love this thread, it all so true! When I was picking a resort at wdw a few weeks back, I was looking at all the pictures of a resort, everything looked nice until a picture of the bed.. ergh!!

I have to agree with you on this. I pretty much hated the bedspreads in CBR and POFQ, having said that though I thought they weren't as bad in person as in photographs. Here is a selection of photos from our 2007 trip.

First one, nice and neutral at Holiday Inn Express at Glasgow airport



Next is CBR, a bit too bright but I thought they were better than CSR at the time.



We then moved to POFQ before our wedding, these were a bit too busy for my liking



Then we moved to concierge after the wedding at The Grand Floridian, much better, more subdued although I am not fond of flowery bedspreads



On to Disney Cruise Line, this was probably the worst to be honest. It reminded me of a bedspread I had when I was a kid, it was a weird sort of material too and the colouring was awful.



Then finally on to the Crowne Plaza at Universal. This was the best color scheme of our whole trip, plain white!



I don't know why Disney have to have busy bedspreads, especially ones that clash with the flooring or curtains, eeewwwww. I must admit I specifically didn't go to CSR or POR because of the bedspreads. I am booked to go to OKW this year though and if the exterior didn't look as good then I would go elsewhere as true enough those bedspreads are awful
