Email offers while at WDW?


#1

Hello experts! We leave in 4 days!! I just received an email from Disney Destinations saying that I would receive emails from them while on our trip - including special offers that may expire before checkout.

Anyone have experience w/this? We were not planning on bringing our laptop - cost of internet access seems pretty excessive, but we can get a great deal out of it, I would consider paying for a day or two.

Thanks!

Can you have someone check your email for you an let you know if something comes up? I would have whoever is housitting or a friend check it -but I am a cheapskate!
Also, I would not want to be checking email on vacation!
But a good deal would be hard to ignore.
What a teaser!

I may do that - have someone else check email for me. Hate to spend $10/day for internet just on the chance they MAY offer some kind of deal.
Doesn’t seem fair!

Let us know if you get a pin code while on vacation. That would be a new one to me! :slight_smile:

Good choice! Still not a bad offer if you can’t find another but I have seen better too :slight_smile:
Did they email any “and more!” information? Like they indicated?

Just one other email about using Photopass. Definately not worth the cost of internet access! I guess if you have a blackberry it would be nice…

When we checked in (I used online check-in so all our stuff was ready) the room wasn’t ready yet - it was about 12:30p.m. We went to get lunch at the resort and they sent me a text with my room # when it was ready - before we finished lunch. I had already received our passes, etc., so we could then go straight to our room.

What did we all do before internet and text messages???
