Walt Disney World Housekeeper Arrested for Theft

A housekeeping cast member at Walt Disney World was arrested after confirming suspicion of theft at Disney’s Old Key West resort.  The cast member, Mayra Burgos, was arrested after Disney set up a sting operation where cash was left in a guest room that Burgos would be cleaning and then confirmed that it was stolen.  There were also surveillance cameras set up in the guest room to catch the act on video tape.  The amount of money used in the setup was $20.  This sting was set up after a string of thefts at the resort in rooms that Burgos cleaned to help confirm or rule out the suspicion.


Burgos was arrested, but bond has since been put up and she is out on bond.  It appears that she will definitely face charges in this matter.  Disney puts the guest experience in a high regard, so it is no surprise that they would go to extensive measures to ensure that guest property is safe and doesn’t create a negative experience.  This will also probably serve as a strong warning to any other cast members across Walt Disney World that may find themselves tempted with a theft situation.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
