Why r they now requiring a cc?
I don't know why they are requiring a CC for online checkin. They started that a couple months ago. You can remove charging privaledges when you arrive.

You still have to pay the package 45 days prior to arrival. With this new crazy website I would do it a few days early. On the new website, I can't even see where to make a payment. Once your balance is paid in full and you are less than 60 days from your check-in date, it will allow you to do the on-line check in. I did it last week with about 35 days to go. I am not too comfortable with the new website but I did get a confirmation. Hopefully the whole process was saved successfully. Hate to find out different when I arrive! Fingers crossed.

The 60-day out check-in (huh? Isn't that more of an "advanced reservation" in anyone's real world) apparently also REQUIRES you to register for and login to My Disney Experience as part of the process.

I suspect they are absolutely desperate to ensure that they data-mine every single person at every single opportunity; God knows how much tracking info this whole Next gen project is going to generate when they're done, but I suspect that's part of how they plan to get their money back for it.

Port Orleans Riverside is my second home - I never get homesick when I'm there, but it does happen the other way around!
