In the wake of the attack on concertgoers at the MGM Grand last year in Las Vegas, it seems some of Disney’s hotels have decided to get rid of their “Do Not Disturb” signs so that staffers can check up on the rooms whenever they deem necessary. Disney will allow housekeeping and maintenance staff to enter rooms on a daily basis but they will knock and announce their presence before entering.

The new signs read, “The Disney Resort hotel and its staff reserve the right to enter your room, even when this sign is displayed, for maintenance, safety, security or any other purpose.”

And The Orleans Hotel and Casino (on Tropicana Avenue in Las Vegas) along with Boyd Gaming’s 23 other properties nationwide, and the Wynn in Las Vegas have changed their policies in response to the mass shooting. (The Orleans will do a “welfare check” after two consecutive days of a “Do Not Disturb” sign on a room door and the Wynn’s policy change allows staff to check on rooms every 12 hours.)
If you don’t want to experience someone coming into your hotel room it’s best to call and check on their policy before you book or make sure to change your status when you leave your room. Unless you are a staying at a Disney property. Welcome to the future everyone.
