    Has been that way at aulani since we checked in on the 23rd. Seems like they do it pretty late as it was after 5pm the past few days that they came to empty trash. Actually no one came in yesterday to do trash service.

    In this day and age when there are more terrorists and crazies who choose to hurt or kill others, hotels / resorts have to change their protocols. I am not surprised by this proactive move from Disney and I expect others to follow suit.

    Probably a good idea. I got locked/trapped in a utility laundry room at Old Key West once. Faulty door latch. So glad I was not traveling alone as my husband was able to get me out. It would have been terrible for a single parent with small kids. A guest could fall in the shower or have a medical emergency, too.

    Not to mention with all the crazies now days, probably a good idea to check the rooms daily.

    Surprised they are doing it already, I would think the board and owners would have to vote on a change like this. Anyways if they do enter they better be bringing more towels every time.

    I hope all the casinos in Vegas and all the major hotels will look at installing this device in the future

    We own dvc points and do not have a seat on the board. Disney sits on the board and hoa. We do not have voting rights, all controlled by disney.

    No towels, just emptying of trash receptacle.

    Legally they had this right already so it's not a change from an ability standpoint.

    We had this happen to us a few weeks ago. We had literally just checked into our room and were running late for a reservation because they did not get us in at regular check in time. I was in the bathroom changing and the next thing I know there is someone in the doorway looking for trash. Of course we didn't have any because we just checked in. Not only did they catch me by surprise, but I enjoy the peace and quiet of not having housekeeping knocking on my door every AM.
    There are many people I know that don't like people coming in unannounced - they worry that they might have left valuables out, or what if someone has a "service dog" or a "working dog" in the room unattended and someone just walks in?

    We are at the Grand Floridian Villas tonight. They have a “room occupied” sign that replaces the do not disturb.

    The new policy was not in place yet at Animal Kingdom when were there for New Year’s Eve.

    BTW, the Grand Floridian is the nicest timeshare (or hotel) that we have ever stayed in. We have stayed at all of the Disney Resorts, most of the Marriott, 4 Seasons, and a few of the Starwood resorts. Disney did an amazing job with the entire building.

    Not a big deal for me. I basically live in hotels and timeshares these days. I am the The District Hilton Club in D.C. this week and housekeeping comes in every day, just like a regular hotel room.
