After the Las Vegas mass shooting, where the shooter had put on the ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on his door for the days he was there, this is another new change happening. Every time something like this happens, the world does change forever.
Walt Disney World has swapped "Do Not Disturb" signs with "Room Occupied" signs at a handful of its hotels in Orlando, Florida. Disney is also allowing housekeeping and maintenance staff to enter the rooms on a daily basis. They will knock and announce their presence before entering.
When you enter the hotels, the sign says very loud and clear, "The Disney Resort hotel and its staff reserve the right to enter your room, even when this sign is displayed, for maintenance, safety, security or any other purpose."
Hilton has also changed its policy wherein staffers alert a security or duty manager after 24 hours of consecutive Do Not Disturb sign usage.
This does make sense but sadly, we cannot help but feel that what is the use of working on these “Do Not Disturb” signs when the mind is itself so disturbed? Who has the remedy for that?
