As we reported last week, “Do Not Disturb” signs were removed from select Walt Disney World Resort rooms and were replaced with “Room Occupied” signs instead. The change in signs also brings in a new policy to Disney Resorts. This new policy called “Right to Enter” states that a Cast Member will enter your room once every 24 hours. In the past, if the “Do Not Disturb” sign was on your door, a Cast Member would not enter your room as long as it was up, even up to the whole length of your visit.
Here is our first look at the new signs:

I think they are so cute!
Right now the following Resorts have had the “Do Not Disturb” signs replaced with the “Room Occupied” sign:
- Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
- Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort
- Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort
- Disney’s Polynesian Villas and Bungalows
- The Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa
Disney has not officially announced the reason for the change but one would think the Las Vegas tragedy back in October is big part of it. Also, changes to the pet policy might have prompted some changes to be made.
The “Room Occupied” signs will be rolled out to all Resort Hotels in the near future.
