Disneyland, the original theme park, opened in 1955. Company founder Walt Disney oversaw its construction on a 65-hectare (160-acre) orange farm in what was then a semi-rural part of Orange County. The park’s original four themed areas - Fantasyland, Frontierland, Adventureland and Tomorrowland - were later joined by Critter Country and New Orleans Square.

Hotels at Disney World are doing away with 'do not disturb' signs


Walt Disney World Resort Hotels will no longer give guests “do not disturb” signs for their doors at three of its hotels, according to Walt Disney World News Today.

WDWNT last Friday reported that the new policy will take effect starting at three of Disney’s monorail resorts near its Magic Kingdom theme park in Bay Lake, Florida.

Guests at Disney’s Contemporary Resorts, Grand Floridian and Polynesian hotels found a paper in their rooms last Friday describing the change.

The signs will be replaced with “room occupied” markers notifying Disney employees when guests are in their rooms.

The guests may still be intruded upon, however, as Disney will now require an employee to enter each of the hotels’ rooms at least once daily to ensure guest safety.

“The hotel and its staff reserve the right to enter your room for any purposes including, but not limited to, performing maintenance and repairs and checking on the safety and security of guests and property,” Disney’s terms of service state.

Disney notes that employees will give reasonable notice prior to entering a hotel room by knocking and then announcing their entrance.

WDWNT reported that the changes are expected to take place at other Walt Disney World Resort Hotels in the coming weeks.

Disney is not publicly stating why it is making the change, but WDWNT additionally reported that the popular theory is the move was prompted by a mass shooting earlier this year.

Gunman Stephen Paddock last October opened fire on an outdoor country concert in Las Vegas, killing at least 58 people and injuring at least 546 others.

Paddock was ultimately found dead of an apparently self-inflicted gunshot wound after attacking the event from the 32nd floor of his nearby hotel room.

Disney’s three monorail resorts offer tall vantage points overlooking crowded guest areas, as well as nearby transportation including buses, monorails and watercraft.
