This past January we spent a week at The Villas at the Grand Floridian. Security checks were preformed daily and at the same time a newly instated trash removal service was preformed. We had no problems with the security checks. We were leaving the room around 8:30 am daily and returning between 11 and 1 for our daughter to take a nap.
At no point during our stay were we bothered by hotel staff while we occupied the room. As we have come to understand many guests are having similar experiences.
Unfortunately, there are still occasional complaints about when the security checks are taking place. These reports are becoming scarce as time progresses.
Hey guys!!! I would like to let everyone know that this isnt fake news. As noted on the comment below this isnt happening at every resort yet. It rolled out at the Monorail resorts. Grand Floridian, Contemporary and Polynesian. It WILL however, be making its way to the rest of the hotels over the next few weeks.
Apparently Disney has decided that mandatory rooms checks are going to be taking place at Walt Disney World Resorts. At Disney, Do not Disturb, signs have been replace by Room Occupied signs. Disney themselves, have not released any information about what exactly this entails. So far guests have been complaining that Disney security is entering rooms without permission and not leaving when asked too. According to TheDis forums, this includes a mother who was giving a bath to her two young daughters.
Something doesn’t feel right about Disney allowing cast members to enter into hotel rooms at will. What does this mean for guests who are trying to take after noon naps? Are there going to be time slots that they aren’t allowed to enter guest rooms at will?
I dont want to get too up in arms about this yet as we really dont know how it’s going to play out long term. I’m hoping Disney revokes it all together because it seems to me like a logistic nightmare with potentially a lot of angry parents.
