They also added a "Link Existing Reservations and Tickets" link, but it just takes you to the Resort and Dining reservation link page, still nothing about tickets.
Thanks! I've updated the first page.

On the main MDE page on the right side under "Get Ready!" I see two new lineks: "Online Check-in Available" and "Purchase Tickets." I assume that I see the online check-in one because I'm within that 60-day window, and I wonder if others see something different? Please let me know.

I'm not sure if this is new... During the online check-in process, when I entered my credit card information, it asked me to set up PINs for the purpose of making purchases on your KTTW card (it did not say anything here about MagicBands). I got to set up a different PIN for every adult of the party including my 11 year old (it did not offer this for my kids under 10). As an option it had a check box to set all the PINs the same. Interestingly, on the final confirmation page, where it lists the party members and who has charging privileges, my 11 year old does not have it... only the true adults... which is actually the way I want it.

Now after I did the online check-in process, that new link "Online Check-in Available" link has chaged to "Modify Check-in."

I also notice that when I view my resort ressies under the "My Reservations" page, there is no longer a blue "Online Check-in" link under the confirmation number to the right.

I see the same things (except I can't find a "Get Ready" link on the home page).

I did on-line check-in about 10 days ago. At that time, there wasn't anything about entering PIN numbers.

Now I have a "Modify Check-in" link and when I click on it, there is an option to enter PIN numbers for each member of my party.

Thanks for the verification. Sorry if I confused with the "Get Ready" thing. It's not a link, but a heading above the other links.

I can't figuare out why it will show my reservations for our resort but won't list our package details as well. Could it be because a travel agent booked for us?

Hi... not that I can tell. I honestly just deleted the app from my Android phone and installed it on my son's iPod. I cannot believe the difference in functionality. The apple version is so much better. So, looks like I will be taking the iPod into the parks with me!

Which is all rather ironic as the New Disney site seems to hate my Safari browser, but will move much faster in Chrome. Well, I guess they wanted to spread the love between platforms. hehe.

I haven't heard any discussion about this issue outside of this thread. Please keep us updated if you see anything change.

Looks like MagicBands will be tested in the parks soon:

WDWMagic Article

Quote:
The final component of the NextGen MyMagic+ experience is set to begin testing in the parks late next week.

MagicBands will be given to a limited number of guests during a small trial period, where the full spectrum of MyMagic+ will be tested in real-world use for the first time. Wearing the MagicBands allows the guest to 'Touch to Enter' at the parks main entrance, 'Touch to Pay' at shops and quick service restaurants, touch for FASTPASS+ access to attractions, and 'Touch to Enter' room access. Test Track will become the first attraction where the MagicBands can be used as part of the experience, in place of the white cards that are currently used in the design studio.

The standard MagicBands are expected to be available in a range of colors, red, black, blue, green, pink, orange and yellow. Disney has also said that special designer MagicBands will be available at an additional cost.

It is expected that once this initial MagicBand test is complete, the rollout will continue in phases to a full deployment of MyMagic+ during the remainder of 2013.

Read more about MyMagic+ and see our FAQ.

Still can't link correctly

I am still working on my June trip. A couple of tech savvy friends of mine are trying to link up using the iOS ipad versions. We can accept each other's invitations and we show up on our friends and family lists, but we can't really add people to reservations or do much with restaurants.

How is this working at this stage for everyone else?

First I created my MDE account, and added all my family members as managed profiles. I added all the ADRs and assigned each family member to the ADRs. When all this was done, my wife finally created her own account. I used the invite button on the profile I created for her and she accepted. At that point (and I forget exactly how we did it now - maybe it was part of the invitation acceptance process?), we were able to assign my wife permission to see all the kids' profiles and make plans for them from her own account. Now if either of us adds a new ADR, it gives each of us the option to add any of our family members to the party.

I should add, I've only done this using the website. Haven't tried doing it with the iPad/iPhone. Maybe I'll test it out today.

Ahhhh, the webpage. I forget about this. My cousin and I really want to do this through the app, but we might try the web page today.

Ok, just tried it from my iPhone. Made an ADR using each of our accounts. From each of them I was able to add all family members to the party.

bcrook, is that what you're having trouble doing?

EDIT: wanted to add that only the account that made the ADR can cancel it or change members of the party. So if my wife makes a plan for me, it doesn't appear that I can do anything about it. (Just the way she likes it!)

This might mean that - if it's at all feasible - it would be wise to have only one person making all the reservations for the group. Otherwise, it may be a pain to try to adjust things later, and having to have multiple people log in just to make a few simple changes.

I added a reservation for 6 at the GF Cafe. It is definitely for six. But it won't let me assign guests to the reservation. There is a button for it. It pulls up the screen and lists my friends and family. But, when I select people it hangs up. My Cousin is linked to my account and can see the reservation, but can do anything with it.

Maybe I should cancel it and try again.

In addition my cousin and I still can't really see each other's plans.
