Walt Disney World to Possibly Remove “Do Not Disturb” Signs from Their Resorts

We have seen a rumor circulating around the internet that impacts a few of the resorts at Walt Disney World.  The rumor is that Walt Disney World will start removing the “Do Not Disturb” signs that are currently located within the guest rooms for guests to hang on their door knobs when they want a little bit of privacy.  Not only would the signs be removed, but Disney would require that each room will be entered by a Disney cast member each day to ensure guest safety, even for guest rooms that don’t receive daily housekeeping services, like DVC rooms.  This change is rumored to come after the tragic shootings in Las Vegas.  The change would be to put extra checks and security in place to ensure that someone didn’t try to pull off a situation at Walt Disney World, like what happened in Las Vegas.

These changes are rumored to first be implemented at the monorail resorts, which include Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  Disney hasn’t officially announced or confirmed these rumors, but it would definitely be a change to the way that the resorts currently operate.

There are various opinions out on the internet about these changes.  There are guests that feel that these changes could result into a huge violation of privacy.  There are also the many guests that understand the need for added security to protect the guests that are staying on property.

We will keep you posted as we learn more about this possible change and what it will mean for guests visiting Walt Disney World.  What would you all think if this was implemented?
