While staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, Guests enjoy excellent housekeeping and guest service throughout their stay. Also known as “Mousekeeping,” the housekeeping team is there to bring clean towels, replace linens, and restock toiletries throughout your stay.
If you plan to stay in your room longer than usual in the morning, or if you return early from the parks, you can place a “Do Not Disturb” sign on your door, letting housekeeping know that the room is currently occupied.

On a recent trip, a Disney guest had a “not so magical” experience with Disney housekeeping. While staying at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, the guest and family were disturbed by housekeeping on several occasions.
“Even though we had our privacy tag on the door, housekeeping still knocked and insisted on coming for a ‘facility inspection’ to make sure the lights and such were working,” the guest by Disney Explain. “They woke my daughter up twice doing this which was embarrassing,” they continued.

The Disney guest went on to explain how the household “turned on the lights while she (their daughter) was sleeping.” “They didn’t seem to care whether they woke her up or not,” they explained.
“I understand they reserve the right to do so, but it’s like they don’t care about our privacy,” they added.
Not only did this guest experience what he felt was constant disruption, but he also felt that housekeeping was not doing their job as efficiently as they should have. The guest added, “Even though they interrupted our privacy almost daily, housekeeping didn’t bother to collect/replace towels. We ended up with a huge pile of them on the bathroom floor on our last day.
