There are already a bunch of interesting changes we’ve noticed today, but now it’s time to take a look at what’s different about our hotel rooms! Here’s a first look inside one of Disney World’s newly reopened hotel rooms!
We were pretty interested to see how Disney has changed our home away from home while we’ve been away. We couldn’t wait to check out our room once Disney texted us it was ready! Plus, we were able to bypass the front desk and use the My Disney Experience’s digital key feature to unlock our door!
Things looked about the same as we remembered them at first glance. We’ve stayed at Disney’s Contemporary Resort’s Bay Lake Tower quite a few times, so we know their DVC studios like the back of our hands!
Upon closer inspection, we could tell a few things had definitely been changed! For one, we noticed there was no bed skirt on our bed. Decorative throw pillows have also been removed.
Our room also had a new sign regarding the enhanced cleaning of our room. Disney is giving all rooms a “thorough cleaning” before your arrival. Specifically, they mention paying special attention to high-touch areas like TV remotes and door handles.
We noticed our DVD and TV remote were freshly sanitized and wrapped in plastic bags.
Guest rooms’ floors are being steam-cleaned and vacuumed between guests. Furthermore, housekeeping tools are be cleaned between each room’s cleaning.
Our bathroom was equipped with all the usual supplies including bath towels, facial tissue, mini toiletries, and toilet paper.
Since this is a Disney Vacation Club room, housekeeping is now scheduled to come on the fourth and eighth days of our stay. Guests staying in non-DVC rooms will receive a light cleaning service every other day of your stay. Both DVC members and regular resort guests can also choose to decline housekeeping services.
Our room also has a small kitchenette that still included its microwave, mini-fridge, and smaller appliances.
The in-room coffee maker was still hanging out!
And we still had our coffee-making supplies, disposable cutlery, regular kitchen towel, and can opener.
Our toaster was also still available…
…and we had the usual supply of disposable cups, bowls, and plates which are individually wrapped.
Keep in mind many of these amenities like a toaster, can opener, and more are standard in DVC rooms like this, but you’ll find the standard in-room coffee maker present in non-DVC rooms! The room was also equipped with its extra blanket, pillow, and hangers…
…and the ironing board and iron were also still present.
The in-room safe is also still available for guests to use.
As you can see, the rooms really haven’t changed all that much from a guests’ perspective even though Disney World has really increased its cleaning procedures at the hotels! We’ll be reporting on all of the changes we see in Disney World today so make sure you follow along with DFB!
