    will Wild Africa Trek restart in August 2021? I am staying in a DVC resort , how can I get fresh towels every day?

    Hello Kevin!

    I love a Guest who comes back to see us, so welcome back to planDisney! A few years ago my husband and I fed the hippos and walked the catwalk above the crocodiles on the Wild Africa Trek. Complete with a delightful and refreshing luncheon on the savanna, this is definitely an adventure to book. Unfortunately, like many things, this tour is still unavailable. I will say this about Mickey, he is a good secret keeper, and only he knows when tours and special events will return to the Walt Disney World Resort. As more Cast Members return to their roles, I am hopeful we will see many of our Disney favorites return, but at this time, tours are not scheduled to resume by August. I recommend following the Disney Parks Blog to see all the latest news. If the tours return, that is the first place they will be announced.

    If you are staying at a Disney Vacation Club Resort in a villa and have booked your stay on cash, you will receive light housekeeping that includes removal of old towels and replacement with new ones, every other day. For rooms booked by Disney Vacation Club Members using Vacation Points, you will receive this trash and towel service on Day 4 and a full clean on Day 8 of your stay. If you have a 1 Bedroom or larger villa you will also have a washer and dryer available if you’d like to use that for your towels. We typically throw our towels in the washer and dryer as needed.

    If you would like to request additional towels, you can call Mousekeeping from your in-room phone, and there is currently no charge for additional towels to be delivered to your room. Do know they will not take your old towels at this time. Traditionally, you could pay a daily fee for additional trash and towel service where Mousekeeping would come and replace the old towels with new ones, but due to safety precautions, this service is not currently available. You may get new towels delivered, and used towels will be removed on the schedule above.

    Wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, Kevin! Please let us know what additional questions you have before your visit!
