We're a value, park commando type family. I think I'd be OK doing this for one or two days, but I'd want housekeeping maybe every third or possibly fourth day. I'd have to know more details.
Marriott does the same thing - depending on where you stay and your status level. I get 1,000 points per day I forego housekeeping. It's just as simple as putting the doortag out that says "I'm earning points - no service required" and that's it. Some stays, I do it for the whole trip - others, I'll have one day where I have them come in a tidy up (if I'm somewhere for more than 3-4 nights).At SPG they will often offer points or a credit (which I don't care about, because I'm expensing it) for all kinds of revised (like not changing the sheets) or no housekeeping.
I really hope they would be cleaning between guests each time.Are they experiencing an employee shortage?
They are always advertising for them but now they have ... and fulltime = benefits.
Do I really want to check into a room after the Clampetts stayed for a week with no Mousekeeping?
Yes they will clean but if you had a dirty family for a week who passed on daily housekeeping, it would really need a deep clean and not sure that will happen.I really hope they would be cleaning between guests each time.
I would strongly question if it would actually prove profitable for Disney in some circumstances if it now takes them three times as long to clean a room at the end of a stay due to it being a complete mess.
I don't like the idea of getting a room that prior to my stay had been solely the guests' responsibility for cleaning for a week. Some people are total messy, dirty slobs. And the ones like that are probably also likely to not want to pay for housekeeping...Yes they will clean but if you had a dirty family for a week who passed on daily housekeeping, it would really need a deep clean and not sure that will happen...I have stayed during among BTG who leave their windows open so I have a great visual of how dirty some rooms get ...
I'm sure most people would agree with you that they like having housekeeping make the bed, but I'm on the other side on that one. I feel smothered if I try to lay down and any part of the sheet or blanket is tucked in so I always un-tuck everything before I lay down. Sometimes they really tuck those sheets tight under the bed though and I fall on my butt trying to yank them loose.I'm such a spoiled lazy person - I want my bed made! Don't need my sheets changed during my stay, but that to me is part of vacation: having someone else make my bed. (And no, I don't like leaving it unmade.) I don't need a lot, but I want my bed made, trash dumped, and toiletries/towels/tp/Kleenex restocked as needed.
And yes I'm a theme park commando who stays mod /value.
I really want to ask for a highlight reel here. I'm sure it'd make my wine bottle in the trash, ironing board not put away and unmade bed look better in my headYes they will clean but if you had a dirty family for a week who passed on daily housekeeping, it would really need a deep clean and not sure that will happen.

It's manageable...but the lack of housekeeping is the primary downside to DVC.The past few years we have been renting points for DVC rooms. At first I thought not having daily mousekeeping would be horrible but it actually was not that bad.
