Disney Adds Hotel Security

Guests at some Walt Disney World resort hotels are noticing some changes, just in time for the new year.

Most notable among the changes is the end of the "Do Not Disturb" sign on hotel room doors.

That sign, according to Disney, is being replaced with a "Room Occupied" sign.

The change is significant in the fact that it signals a change in security. 

While hotel workers will be required to knock and identify themselves before entering a room with an "occupied" door-hanger, they will still be entitled to enter the room, according to Disney.

Workers will also be allowed to check rooms at least once a day to ensure the safety of the guests.

The changes come in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting earlier this year.

A Las Vegas resident had used several high-powered rifles to inflict heavy casualties during a nighttime concert.

His room had not been checked for several days prior to the episode; it was during that time that investigators say they suspect the gunman had stockpiled the weapons and ammunition.
