Wind In The Willows Bedspread?

I've seen enough 20/20 specials on hotel cleanliness to know that if someone tries to sell you a used hotel bedspread punch them in the face and run away. So you'd probably be surprised to know that I actually own one ( I know, disgusting).  Well before you freak out let me explain why.

I found this bedspread on ebay a few years ago, it supposedly came from The Grand Floridian Resort in Walt Disney World.  I know you guys probably think I swim in money but I'm no Danny Tanner so I've never actually stayed at the GF.  The bedspread itself is a little wacky with swans all over it, but hidden in each scene is a character from The Wind in the Willows.

And of course...


If you're wondering if I use this thing the answer is no.  It's King sized but looks even bigger (you know how those hoity toity Grand Floridian guest are...). It also has the texture of sand paper.....

  1. too funny! how in the world did someone end up with this in the first place? Was it stolen? Did a cast member swipe it to sell on Ebay? :)

  2. I've seen them on ebay a few time so maybe Disney is getting rid of them? If someone stole it and put it on ebay that might be even better though.
