Today we put into production a feature that'll automatically fax Disney your specific room request, 5 days before your check-in date.
I'll do a blog post on this later in the week, but here's the gist of it:
**- Use the Dashboard to tell us your travel dates and hotel you're staying at
- Choose a specific hotel room using the Hotel Room View tool
- Back on the Dashboard, click the "edit" button next to your room number, and add your contact info, Disney reservation number, any other text (like birthday celebrations, etc.) to the body of the text**
We'll send you an alert 7 days before your check-in to remind you that the fax is going to be sent. We'll also send you an alert when Disney's fax machine has confirmed receipt.
If Disney's faxes are busy, we'll retry for up to 24 hours. In the event the fax doesn't work for 24 hours, we'll alert you, give you a copy of the text, and tell you how to use a free online service to fax Disney.
Those of you doing split-stays will be able to fax both room requests by setting up two separate trips, with different check-in dates.
