That link just worked for me, and I am 50 days out. But there was no way to add or check anything in the "special requests" section. Is that normal? We will be an AKL and I thought there would be some options for which section/trail we want? There isn't even the typical "near transportation" type generic options to choose from.

I have NEVER been able to add ANY requests during online check-in for any of our last 3 trips. I learned long ago, the best way to add requests is by calling and having them added to your reservation. Been successful 100% of the time doing it that way.

I've been trying for the past week to do online check in. Friday I called their tech people and they took me through to the mydisneyreservation.com and my reservation comes up but I still can't check in. The tech person said I was the third person from the Pop not able to do the on-line check in, so it was reported. She told me to try back in 24-48 hrs. Still trying here for a check in on 1/6. I'm a bit nervous to arrive without checking in first. When we were there in December I had done the online check in so my packet was ready, but their computers were down so they were having to get us rooms via the telephone. Having my packet was really a time saver for our cast member. I really feel for the cast members on the front line with this, the tech people were still very upbeat and super exited about how great the new site will be once the glitches are taken care of.

I've been trying all today without any luck, I just keep getting Goofy telling me that online check-in is unavailable and to try again later I wonder if there's an ETA on when it'll actually be working. I'm 10 days out from my trip and I'd like to be able to put in some requests.

During online check-in is NOT the time, or method, to add requests. It's best to call and have them added to your reservation.

is it best to do online check in even if you are staying club level? Sorry if this is a basic question, but online check in was not an option when we went 4 years ago. TIA

Personally, I wouldn't worry about checking in online. We always have our requests attached to our reservation well in advance. We've only done on line check in once out of all our trips, and I didn't see a huge advantage. There were no lines for either. And it was the only time they got our leaving date wrong. We were doing a split stay, but had us in the same room for the entire trip. It prob took us longer to check in because they had to go into the back, and look up our details and re do everything.

This was just our experience, I'm sure on line check in works for most 99% of the time.

The request box with on line check in is very limited, so if you have something specific you have to phone and have it added to your reservation.

A very important point. This is the very first trip where I have even bothered with online check in. So far I'm not entirely sure what all the fuss is about in the first place.. LOL

Worst redesigned site ever.

I have 2 room only reservations...they showed up...1 was right...no online check in....the other one was missing a person...called Disney got it fixed...still no online check in.

Went back this afternoon...now the reservations are arriving and leaving 1 day earlier than expected....this goes beyond migrating data....it is just all around untested!
