If you select a room and configure a fax, we try to send your room request to Walt Disney World Resort Hotels via fax machine starting 5 days prior to your check-in date.
If you add a room request fewer than 5 days prior to check-in, that's fine. Our tool will send any "un-faxed" requests for check-ins between 1 and 5 days from now when it runs its daily "send the faxes" job the next morning.
Note that our tool simply sends a fax to Disney. Although plenty of customers have had success with our Room Request tool, there are no guarantees, and you should set your expectations accordingly.
We have no control over whether Disney acknowledges or grants room requests, so we do not know whether submitting a "late" request helps or hurts your chances of success compared to having the fax sent at our "normal" time of 5 days in advance.
