The new policy means that ‘room occupied’ signs will replace the ‘do not disturb’ signs, allowing hotel staff to knock and announce themselves instead of leaving the room undisturbed.

“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 new terms of service state, according to Walt Disney World News Today

Guests will be given “reasonable” notice by cast members before entering the room.

Disney isn’t the only company to revisit their hotel policies. Hilton recently adjusted theirs to allow cleaning staff to slid ‘unable to service’ slips under the door of hotel rooms that have placed a ‘do not disturb’ sign on their door for more than 24 hours.
