    "What is the rule when you use the dishes in your room the day you check out? Do you put them in the dish washer or leave them? My daughter said, the staff has to put all the dishes in the room and just put in the dish washer."

    Hey there, hi there, Dianne! You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great question!

    Dianne, don't you just love the Disney Vacation Club Resorts?! I know I do! Nothing beats having the luxury and amenities of the Disney Deluxe Resorts with all the comforts of home. With a living room, dining area, washer and dryer, and full kitchen or kitchenette, these Resorts really are the perfect pixie-dusted home away from home right in the middle of the magic! Of course, even our homes away from home seem to collect dishes, so let's chat about what to do with them!

    As far as I know, there is no official policy or rule on what to do with your dishes at checkout, but I am happy to share what I do. I always load the dishwasher and start it before leaving my Villa on checkout day. I was recently told by a Housekeeping Cast Member that they will wash any dishes left out or in the sink and re-wash the dishes in the dishwasher no matter what, so if you don't have a chance to run the dishwasher, Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries!" But I definitely suggest loading the dishwasher as a courtesy. Let's pay the magic forward!

    I hope this was helpful, Dianne! Please stop by any time with any planning or DVC questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in planDisney!

    Blue skies and sunshine,
