Daily Housekeeping Returns Deluxe Resort Hotels At Walt Disney World



Disney Grand Floridian Resort

During the COVID-19 pandemic Disney periodically adjusted many policies and services throughout their resort hotels due to labor shortages and to maintain compliance with the local government’s safety ordinances.

One of the changes that we saw was a modified housekeeping schedule at many of the Disney Resorts, but now we are happy to report that Disney is revisiting their housekeeping schedules at Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. Now, as of January 15th, daily housekeeping has returned to Disney’s Deluxe resorts!

What Are The New Housekeeping Schedules For Walt Disney World Resort Hotels?

We’ve added a chart below to help visualize the housekeeping schedule for each resort type, as well as whether the reservations is being paid for by a DVC members using points, or if the reservation is made using cash.

Resort Type Points / Cash Housekeeping Schedule
Moderate + Value Cash Every other day housekeeping
Deluxe Cash Daily housekeeping
Deluxe Points Housekeeping based on length of stay*

Disney Vacation Club Members and their Guests have the option of purchasing additional housekeeping service by visiting the front desk or contacting housekeeping by using their in-room phone.

What Does This Mean For Me?

Practically, this announcement simply means that Disney Cast Members will be cleaning the rooms now on a more frequent basis. Housekeeping services include the following:

  • Making the bed
  • Full bathroom cleaning
  • Wiping down all surfaces
  • Replacement of amenities
  • Vacuuming
  • Dusting

Guests of any Disney Resort Hotel can always choose to opt-out of housekeeping service if they wish to do so by notifying a Cast Member, using the occupied placard on their door, or by opting out during the check-in process.

If there are specific supplies or housekeeping requests, guests can always alert the front desk or housekeeping to fulfill any of these requests. Disney Cast Members are excellent at making your stay a special and memorable experience, so don’t hesitate to ask for what you need!
