I think if you haven't switched to the new Disney website design it won't load.

Yep. 60 days. Do you really need 2 months to check in?

I wonder if this somehow connected to FP+? The online guidelines of the upcoming new experience references a 60 day window to pan your events. Seems strange that the 60 day number is being introduced at the same time.

I think you are right. One thing that I noticed, and has been discussed in other threads, is that if you opt for FP+ (reserving FP Times in advance) you won't be eligible for regular FP ticketing. It's an either/or option for fastpass. Once implemented, we would be able to pick FP+ attractions at the 60 day mark, so I guess they are saying, you have to be "checked in" in order to book your FP+. Would that mean that we would have to be Paid In Full prior to checking in before booking FP+?

Right now, Paid In Full isn't required until 45 days out. That's a 15 day difference between checking in and booking FP+ and paying off your vacation.

I wonder if Disney has thought through all of the potential scenarios?

to register your reservation, you need the longer confirmation code, not the one with letters & numbers that is 7 or 8 digits, you need to use the 12? digit confirmation code. you will also have to manual enter all your dining reservations. but on a positive note, the 'my itinerary' section is pretty cool, I hope that they expand it to add calendars and such

Package reservations can use the code with the letters in it - that's their confirmation number. The 12 digit code is for rooms.

It's just buggy right now.

system is def buggy. I assume the 60 day online check in is due to the fact once FastPass + is live you can make your "ressies" for FP+ at the 60 day window. I am betting u must be "checked in" online in order to do so.

I'm not sure I could check in 60 days prior and settle in on that resort reservation without the possibility of changing it.

Interesting....you can check-in @ 60 days out (theoretically), but don't have to be paid off until the 45 day mark. I wonder how that will work for Disney. Will they have to disallow any check-in unless the reservation is 100% paid in full?
