This is our experience since the Mandlay, Las Vegas, horror and DVC’s way of trying to handle things. I can remember seeing “do not disturb “ signs hanging on doors 24/7. Normally, DVC, being a timeshare, would not vacuum, clean, take out trash, replace towels. You were expected to take your trash and recycling to the designated room. You were expected to wash your towels in the provided washer/dryer in your room (one bedrooms) or use the free facilities in the resort. On your fourth day, housekeeping would come in and change out your bath and kitchen towels and replenish soaps etc if needed. But only if your Do not Disturb sign was not hanging on the door and your room was not locked from the inside.
The crazy person at Mandaly had a do not disturb sign on his door for days (not a timeshare but you get the picture). Meanwhile he was stockpiling his room with weapons.
The hotel/timeshare industry needed to do something. Hence the daily trash pick up and room walkthrough. I’m fine with it, as we follow the guidelines. When in the room, we double lock the door and put out the room occupied sign. When we go out, we take the sign off the door. Some people leave the sign up because “we don’t want anyone snooping around”. And then get annoyed when someone is knocking on the door at 7 pm. Think about what could happen if someone is stockpiling weapons at a monorail resort.
Unfortunately that is the way the world is. We all need to be inconvenienced because of deranged people.
Since the shutdown, things have been inconsistent in this area. Disney has been having trouble hiring good people. They sure do make a good hourly wage now for jobs that require no kind of degree. I plan on putting my own security devices in my rooms now. I’m reading too many stories about employees being arrested. The latest was an employee working in a souvenir shop in Star Wars Land that was taking upskirt photos of females in the store. 500 of them…because he couldn’t find photos like that on porn sites. So I guess they are not really doing any background checks for employees making $18/hour.
