4 Disney World resorts to replace 'Do Not Disturb' with 'Room Occupied' signs

ORLANDO, Florida (KTRK) -- Some Disney World hotels are replacing their "Do Not Disturb" signs as part of new security measures.

The Polynesian, The Grand Floridian, The Contemporary and Bay Lake Resorts now have "Room Occupied" signs in place of "Do Not Disturb."

According to Disney World, that change gives employees the right to enter any guest room for maintenance, safety or security reasons.

Guests have had mixed reactions.

"Well I do think it's an invasion of privacy, but I do understand," a mom from Chicago said.

"I am for it, definitely, we want everyone to be safe," Rosa Crespo, from New York, said.

This comes months after the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history in which a gunman shot people at a music festival of a Las Vegas hotel.

Disney declined to say whether the change was made because of the Las Vegas massacre.
