Kitchen Closed at Walt Disney World Swan for Failing Health Inspection; Bugs Found

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

An employee cafeteria at the Walt Disney World Swan was closed down by health inspectors last week because of live roaches and fruit flies in the kitchen.


During a visit on Oct. 12, an inspector noted live and dead roaches. “Observed 14 live roaches crawling on the kick plate near hot boxes,” the report read. There were also fruit flies in the prep room, among six basic and two high-priority violations.

The kitchen reopened the next day with a clean inspection. Other eateries in the hotel passed recent health inspections.

The Swan Resort is on Disney World property but is managed by Starwood Hotels.
