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?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
