The wand chooses the wizard, Mr. Potter
Then some need reading skills. My 95% comment was that for most of the visits, I was in the room and didn't find it an issue.Oh I'm sure they're required to knock before entering any room, even if there's no sign. It doesn't sound like you care that much, but I have a friend who runs in the fall half-marathon - Wine and Dine? - and she said she was able to request a time for housekeeping that fit her schedule.
I was afraid your "95%" comment would be interpreted by some to mean that Disney does not care at all about the Room Occupied sign, which I don't think is the case. It doesn't take much to set some people off on this topic.
Yes, it's the W&D Half in November. I do all three races that weekend, hence the getting up at 2:30 AM 3 mornings in a row to be on the bus to the starting area. I'll be there in 13 days for the Princess Half. Will certainly check if I can have Housekeeping schedule the check around 9AM. That way, when I get back to my room after the races, they've done their thing.
