Security Changes Coming to Disney World Resort and Disney Vacation Club Resort Rooms

I received a call from a client today asking about a potential change coming to Disney World Resort hotel rooms. Online reports stated that “Do Not Disturb” signs at select Walt Disney World Resorts were being replaced with “Room Occupied” signs. Reports also indicated that Disney has also changed their policy reflecting that a Cast Member will be permitted to enter your room daily regardless if there is a sign on your door or not. Previously, if the”Do Not Disturb” sign was displayed, the Cast Member would not enter it without probable cause.

After receiving the call from my client, I called Disney to check on this and they did indeed confirm this rumor. Beginning today, the following Disney World Resorts will have the “Do Not Disturb” signs replaced. Cast Members will be permitted to enter a Guests’s room at least once every 24 hours. This new change is referred to the “Right to Enter” policy. The Resorts are:

The new policy will eventually be extended to all Disney World Resorts in the near future.

Grand Californian

In addition, changes are coming to Disney Vacation Club rooms. As of today, December 22, DVC rooms at the five following DVC Resorts will have daily trash service. (Previously, trash was only removed once every four days.)

Disney has not stated exactly why these changes are being made but one can guess these are security changes stemming from the Las Vegas Massacre back in October. The changes also might be due Disney making changes to their dog policy where they now allow dogs in rooms at select Disney World Resorts. 

Other than these changes coming to the DVC rooms at Disney’s Grand Californian Resort & Spa, no other changes for Disneyland Hotels or Disney’s Vero Beach and Hilton Head Resorts have been announced at this time.
