Stealing from room safe

I read a new DIS article today that said a housekeeper was caught stealing money from a room safe. I want to know why/how a housekeeper would be able to have keys to the safe?!?!?

Not necessarily the keys... Some hotel safes have a master passcode (in case the guest forgets)

Are Hotel safes really that safe?

OP, please post a link to this thread. The last item I saw about a Disney housekeeper arrested for theft said that she had stolen cash and a credit card that were in the room but not in the safe. This happened at AoA back in May.

Still, I would like to know how she gained access to inside the safe? If it was keyed, did she have a master? Of it was an electronic keypad how did she know the combo? Ia there a master code that opens them all? Did she just pry on the safe?

This is why we keep major valuables in the Front Desk safety boxes.

This is a link to the article from the Orlando Sentinel with some more details:
http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/...,6027089.story

It does not specify how she got in the safe.

It does happen everywhere, like a previous poster said. I'm just glad they caught and arrested her. But this is why I was totally freaking out on our last trip when the mousekeeper kept leaving the curtains to my room open.... I travel with two laptops as well as a bunch of other electronics. You can't stash them all (and you can't fit laptops in the safe). At one point, I even clothespinned the curtains together, she obviously didn't get the hint.

I like to consider myself a very easy, go-with-the-flow kind of guy, and leaving things out in the room has never bothered me before - and has never been an issue before. But, with that said, I have often relied on the in-room wall safe for storing things like cash and credit cards. I mean, we've come to rely upon the safe being, well, SAFE! Excuse me for being a little concerned...
