We've never had anything stolen. In fact my sister left her laptop behind one time (how she did that I don't know) and Disney mailed it back to her

Lost my safe key along with my car keys on a roller coaster at SW (my pocket had a zipper but the pocket itself had developed a hole unbeknownst to me). It was $35 dollars and maintenance had to drill out the old lock and install a new one. The maintenance guy swore up and down there are no master keys and they have no way of getting into the safe other than drilling it out. There was also another employee in the room at the time along with myself; he said that's a requirement anytime they have to open a safe.

OMGoodness! That is so scary!! I agree with the others.. something needed to be done, that is insane.. and creepy. I doubt it's even legal.

I had something missing from the room on our last trip.

I can't say with any certainty that it was definitely stolen but, it did disappear.
I had a bottle of Wen sitting on the metal ledge above the sinks at POR. I recall that first morning we were heading to Animal Kingdom and I looked back to the open little area with the sinks in them as we walked out the door and clearly saw the Wen sitting on the ledge behind my make-up bag.
When I returned that evening it was gone. My make-up bag was still sitting there but, the Wen was gone behind it.
Wen is very expensive and it was a brand new bottle.. I had just opened it and used it that morning before we left. I took it out of the shower and set it on the ledge. It was the jumbo 32 ounce bottle too.

Anyway, I called and explained the situation and Disney was very good about it. They gave me a credit for the amount I paid for the bottle. The women I spoke to though insisted that it wasn't stolen .. she insisted it was accidentally thrown out. I have no idea how it could have been thrown away accidentally, this is a huge bottle of conditioner and it was sitting in the middle of a wide ledge with things all around it where it couldn't fall... but, I didn't argue with her.. I just accepted the credit.

I have always thought the maid took it but, again I can't say that for sure.. Wen is not cheap and she may have thought I wouldn't catch on.. however I noticed it was gone about a minute after we got back to the room that evening. I think it was the maid because I don't see any other explanation... nothing else makes sense and it didn't jump off the ledge and walk out of the room on its own.

I had to run to Walmart and buy new shampoo and conditioner and it didn't work as well as my Wen. My hair was a frizz ball in the Florida humidity for the rest of our trip. I am not kidding.. every picture is me looking like I stuck my finger in a light socket. Its sort of funny now but, at the time I was pretty bummed... lol

I do know how much that stuff runs.. I would not be happy if mine disappeared. Glad you got a refund.

Yes, I know it's going to sound stupid, but it's really the only explanation. My DS has a tiger pillow pet thing that is like a stuffed animal on the outside and it comes with a blanket that you can keep inside to make it a pillow. We take it every time we take a trip, and in 2009 we took it and stayed at Pop. He had the blanket part out of it during our stay and used the tiger part, just as a stuffed animal. Well one night after being gone at the parks all day, towards the end of our trip, the stuffed animal part was gone. We looked everywhere (as he slept with it each night) and it was nowhere to be found. There's no way we took it to the parks with us and no one else had access to our room, so the only explanation is that housekeeping took it.

Yes, I'm glad it wasn't anything expensive or vital (like my purse that I keep hidden in multiple suitcases, but still, it really upset me. I've since replaced the tiger, but many times I'll leave the "do not disturb" sign on our doors now and just go get towels when needed.

I've never had anything taken from the room. I did have sunglasses and a jacket stolen at EPCOT during our last trip.

Nope. I usually put my laptop in a dresser drawer and I've left my iPad and iPod out on separate occasions - nothing happened to any of them.

That is absolutely terrifying, I'm so sorry that happened.

I am guessing that the stuffed animal got rolled up in the sheets and thrown into the laundry but that is something that really upsets children. Sorry.

Why did you even talk to manager ? Why wouldn't first person you talk to be a 9 1 1 operator ?

Nope, nothing has ever been taken. We do use the safe to put cash and our wallets in (with credit cards, ID's, etc. in). But we have left out computers, cameras, and other expensive stuff and no one has touched it. I wouldn't worry too much about it. Protect what you can and have fun!

As a side note, we also leave all kinds of stuff in the stroller at parks. Never had anything taken from there either. Knock on wood.

I like how a lot of the posters here imply that by staying in a value, you're more at risk. "Nope, never been robbed and we've even stayed in values." Ugh.
