If there's something that every hotel room should have is a "Do Not Disturb" sign, TBH!
This is the only way to enjoy some extra hours of sleep before you have to check-out of a hotel. The sign, which is often placed outside of the door, let's housekeeping workers or any other guests know that you're busy or just catching some ZzzZzzzz's.
It's quite convenient, honestly and almost every hotel room in the world has one. Some resorts at the Disney Parks, however, have opted to get rid of their "Do Not Disturb" signs.

This beautiful resort is definitely on my Disney bucket list! What resort do you dream of staying at one day? #mickeymamas
Instead, Disney Resorts will be using "Room Occupied" signs, allowing maintenance and housekeeping workers to enter rooms daily, according to the Orlando Sentinel. With the new change, which took effect earlier this month, "a hotel staffer must knock and identify himself or herself before entering if the 'Room Occupied' sign is out."
Although it has not been confirmed by a Disney Resort representative, it's believed that the decision was influenced by the Las Vegas shooting that occurred on October 1st, where a gunman shot from the Mandalay Bay Resort. The OS reports that the new change was made for "a variety of factors, including safety, security and the guest experience."
The "Room Occupied" signs are found at the Disney hotels in Orlando, Fla. accessible by the monorail—the Polynesian Village Resort, Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, Contemporary Resort and its connected Bay Lake Tower.
