No, it isn’t a joke or a prank.
If you’re planning to head to Disney this year, here’s a great perk! Guests at Disney moderate and budget resorts are offered a gift card of $20 per night of their stay if they elect to “opt out” of Mousekeeping services! This means on a 4 night stay, you will receive an $80 card. For 5 nights, you’d receive $100.
Guests may still request toiletries, but will be opting out of in-room cleaning, bed making, etc.
This is a great way to receive a little extra spending money for those awesome Disney souvenirs!
The offer is not currently available at Deluxe resorts, but is being tested at moderate and budget resorts.
This may be discontinued (or expanded to other resorts) at any time.
To receive your free card, simply let the desk clerk know when you check in that you are interested in the free gift card offer in exchange for opting out of mousekeeping. They’ll let you know if they are a participating resort.
