I called and they said they see my Swan reservation and that I should wait 48hours for confirmation ??? Why one and not the other ??
The Swan is not operated by Walt Disney World. They have to relay the reservation to the third party operator of the hotel and await confirmation return from that operator.

Same thing happened to me today. Almost immediately after getting on the website(and not being able to click on ANYTHING!!!!), the survey popped up and I took it because they need to know how horrible the new site is. Also I figured I wasn't able to do anything on the website, so I might as well do the survey.

Yes, yes I did. I went to the feedback website to provide still more information because I was just that annoyed. Comcast/Verizon/EA provide better customer experiences than this. Apparently, the feedback form isn't working properly either because once I clicked "Next" I got a page error and no way to go back. I hate to have a single experience and the resulting fallout tinge a 3 decade history with an otherwise great company but considering how every attempt to solicit some sort of response has failed (I'd be totally happy with a; "That's not up to our standards and we are sorry"), I'm disappointed on a cosmic scale.

Cosmic Disappointment.. Universe-Galaxy Level Disappointment. That very accurately sums up how this on-going failure of a website launch is going for Disney.

True story, 1997 I was offered the job of managing the websites for Disney Parks in North America. I almost accepted but in the end chose to stay with my employer at the time, NBC Television.

In some ways when I see them continuing to fail so significantly I sit and wonder.. "What if" .. .

I guess that would depend where in the food chain these decisions are coming from. You might have headed this off at the pass or you might be raging with the situation that got dumped in your lap.

I'm in web development too and I *get* that sometimes your staging and production environments aren't exactly the same and surprises happen but the way they've been handling the issues is what really seem most "unDisney." At the very least inform the phone people or just roll it back to the last working iteration. Given that the biggest differentiation over their competition is insanely good customer service, having a major train wreck and be perceived to be doing exactly nothing isn't a shrewd strategy.

I sent an email on 12/17 to which I got a reply on 12/18. No response from the resorts online team. I won't hold my breath but I will continue to contact them. Reply to my email is below:

"Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World Resort. Your message has
been forwarded to the Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Online team.

We are sorry for the disappointments you experienced with the new My
Reservations page. Please know your comments have been shared with
various areas of our Online Team. This allows us to identify areas of
opportunity for improvement.

Thank you again for sharing your experience with us."

wow, this is unbelievable. I'm so glad in Canada we haven't gotten this new web site YET, and hopefully when we do the glitches will be ironed out.
So sorry for all your frustration.

I changed my reservations over the phone and can view them now; however, I can only view two of my dining reservations.

I used the chat feature to let them know I need help getting my reservation to link. Here is the reply.

Boyd: We are currently experiencing some Magical Enhancements and they are working on restoring that feature as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Have you tried using Google Chrome? I noticed that Disney had it recommended in their software section so I downloaded it. I call it my "Disney Browser". I can use any/all websites on IE, but have to use Chrome if I'm doing anything Disney
