I suppose at Disney people probably let down their guard.
It is, but if you are with others they may not be napping too. Or in the mornings I may be getting ready and DH will go get some food or coffee. He'd like to be able to get back into the room and I'd also like him to get back into the room.

Even before this situation was created I have had a bad time napping in the room - just cannot relax. Now when I feel a need for an PM break we go to the pool - for some reason I can sleep there (my BH's job is to jab me when my snoring becomes too loud ). I should say I can sleep in the lounger areas where the loungers are 3 and 4 rows deep (I don't know why).

I typically don't think of doing it, but mrs. brp usuallyu does. Only at night, however. We're not usually in the room much in the day, and just don't think to do it then when we are.

Cheers.

No one napping in our room this afternoon. Wedding reception on the green right outside of our room. Far, far, far too much noise for anyone to nap.

I'd like to see them try... I'm the one who has all the log in/booking ability/info so without me they are lost

When I travel alone I always latch it though. Might just be a woman traveling alone thing, but I prefer my privacy and safety. Other locations I put up the DND sign and don't want them in my room at all until I leave if possible.

Have family member call you.


I think you cannot predict a pattern with the employees. Maintenance do seem faster than housekeeping. I have encountered housekeeping that come in -"think someone is in bedroom" and not clean, while others are reporting they walk in on you. So, seems to be no rhyme or reason. I have those who just don't clean - skip altogether. And, if you forget sign, they forget you!

Someone was taking a nap while I was at the pool. If I wanted to get back in while they were in their room sleeping, calling would disturb them just as much.

No win situation sometimes.

Then again I also don't take my phone to the pool... I usually use that time to charge it if needed.
