Is Mousekeeping Back At Disney?
Mousekeeping is back at Disney, and it is considered to be operating under light cleaning. Previously, due to the COVID-19 pandemic Mousekeeping was scaled back drastically in order to reduce contact of other people entering your hotel room. Mousekeeping not only mantains your room during your stay, but also works hard in order to clean your room before you arrive. Before arriving at your resort, your room will undergo comprehensive cleaning with special attention to high-touch areas like tv remotes and door handles. They will also steam clean and/or vacuum floors of the rooms between guests. Any items that have been sanitized will be sealed in single use plastic bags.
How Often Does Disney Mousekeeping Come?
Mousekeeping is currently servicing regular Disney hotel rooms every other day. If you are staying at a DVC resort or renting DVC points for your stay, you will receive Mousekeeping on the 4th and 8th day of your stay. During these service days, you will receive what Disney considers to be light housekeeping. This includes removal of trash and used towels, replenishment of towels and other amenities throughout the room and bathroom, wiping and cleaning of the vanity and surfaces, and vacuuming. Housekeeping tools will be cleaned in between rooms to help maintain cleanliness. If you still aren’t comfortable with the idea of Mousekeeping entering your room, this service can be declined for the duration of your stay. However, Disney Cast Members will still be required to enter your room occasionally throughout your stay in order to perform safety checks.

Mousekeepers Make Disney Magic Too
Mousekeepers at Disney World love to make Disney magic just as any other Cast Member would. You might walk into your hotel room one day and find that the Mousekeepers have arranged your towels into an animal or decoration. If your child has a stuffed animal in the room you might find that they have incorporated it into the design! Mousekeepers are valuable Disney Cast Members, and without them the Disney resort experience would not be the same.
