Today we’re announcing the launch of our Automatic Room Request feature for Walt Disney World. Starting now, your specific room request can be automatically sent to your Disney resort, a few days before you arrive. This increases your chances of getting exactly the room you want.
Our Automatic Room Request feature works with our Hotel Room Views – our collection of more than 30,000 photos showing the view from every Disney hotel room. (Here’s an example from room 4063 at Disney’s Yacht Club Resort.) Once you find the room you want, click the link in the upper right corner to choose it for your trip:
Finally, add in any special celebrations, such as birthdays or anniversaries, along with your name and reservation number for the fax:
That’s it. We’ll automatically send the request to your Disney hotel, 5 days before you check in. This means that you don’t have to remember to do it on exactly the right morning. And if Disney’s systems are down, we’ll automatically keep trying until it’s sent. We’ll also send you a notification when your request has been received.
More than 2,500 families have already tried the Automatic Room Request feature, and it’s working even better than we expected. While we can’t guarantee you’ll get a specific room (and neither can Disney), we’re confident that this greatly increases your chance of having a fantastic hotel room.
Currently Automatic Room Request is only available to those with a Walt Disney World subscription to TouringPlans.com, and you must have a future “trip” to Disney World defined on your dashboard prior to making the request.
