    I remember going to WDW as a young girl. A small detail but vivid memory I have is of the hotel cast members creatively arranging the plush characters we had in our room (eg Mickey tucked into bed) while we were away. Does this still happen?

    Hi Gina,

    Yes this "magical" movement of plush still does happen, but not all the time.  I think it depends on which mousekeepers are assigned to your room while you are vacationing there.  I have stayed in "value" resorts where my daughter has been surprised with her plush waiting for her in the window for when she returns and also some towel origami animals being placed in the room as a surprise for her.  I have also been to "deluxe" and "moderate" resorts where there has been nothing during one whole stay and then these surprises happen again during other stays!  I spoke with a cast member on my last trip who informed me that there are only a limited amount of mousekeepers who know how to do the towel origami animals and when they are scheduled for work is when you are luckiest to get these "special" surprises.  We look at it this way.....when it happens, wow! and great! and when it doesn't, well then there are other guests that get to experience some "pixie dusted" moments and are able to see the "magic" here at WDW just like we do.  I hope you get to experience this again on your next trip, it is so much fun to get surprises at WDW.

    Have a magical day!
