Decline Disney World Housekeeping to Save $10 a Day?

Disney resort room

Decline Disney World Housekeeping? Why would you ever do this? Walt Disney World Value and Moderate Resort hotels (including the Cabins at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort) are still offering a trial phase Service Your Way program that gives you the ability to decline housekeeping services during your resort stay. If you decide not to have your room cleaned each day, you will receive a Disney Gift Card worth $10 per night for all nights of your stay except one. So if you spend 7 nights in a Disney resort, you will receive a $60 gift card if you decline housekeeping, which Disney fans in-the-know also call “Mousekeeping.”

Should you save money by cleaning your own resort room or simply enjoy being pampered?
