Walt Disney World Resort is changing the hotel-room entry policy at some of its properties, according to the non-Disney-affiliated WDW News Today blog. Disney will replace its "Do Not Disturb" signs with "Room Occupied" tags, and is informing guests that employees will enter guest rooms at least once a day, in accordance with Disney's terms of service, which state, "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."
The report speculated that the change is a security measure, spurred by the mass shooting incident on the Las Vegas Strip last October. The change will be implemented at the three WDW properties closest to its monorail - the Grand Floridian, the Polynesian and the Contemporary Resort (above); other Disney World hotels are expected to have the signs switched out within the next few weeks.
M&C reached out to Walt Disney World for confirmation but at press time had not heard back.
