Starting with Contemporary, Polynesian and the Grand Floridian, Walt Disney World Resort Hotels will no longer provide guests with “Do Not Disturb” signs to put on their doors. The signs will be replaced with “Room Occupied” signs that will notify cast members that guests are in the rooms. However, these guests will be “disturbed” at some point, as it will now be required that a Disney Cast Members enter their hotel room at least once a day to ensure guest safety.
Disney’s new sign states that “the hotel and its staff reserve the right to enter your room for any purposes including, but not limited to, performing maintenance and repairs or checking on the safety and security of guests and property.”
Disney also states that cast members will give reasonable notice prior to entering by knocking and announcing that they will enter.
Guests stayingat the Grand Floridian, Polynesian, and Contemporary Resorts should find a paper in their rooms today noting the change. These new changes are expected to roll out to other Walt Disney World Resort Hotels next week.
