You can't book a regular package either. Someone on another board said they were doing upgrades but didn't say if it was discount or general computer upgrades.

Not on three different browsers and not even after clearing caches, etc. on each one.

Of course this isn't the only problem with the Disney website. But to answer Rustygator: it doesn't mean that there is anything wrong on your end or that the summer offer is off the table. It just means that the Disney website is very poorly maintained. You can always call them and book that way. If you want to see details about the summer offer, mousesavers.com is a good place to see all current offers. Disney's own website, for whatever reason, isn't.
My apologies - I guess I just haven't had that issue you are describing. I thought you were referring to the issue that their site IS actually down today. It currently gives this message:

"We are unable to process room or package reservations at this time. Please try again later. If you have general questions regarding a Walt Disney World® vacation, please feel free to contact us at (407) 939-7675. Guests under age 18 must have parent or guardian permission to call."

Yup, the darn thing's broken.

The rest of their site, but for that one "summer discounts" page, works for me, including the booking engine.

Well, somebody's done something screwy. It all works for me, except of course for even viewing info about the summer discount, but it apparently doesn't work at all for a very large group of people.

It flabbergasts me that a company that is so renowned for customer service has such a terrible website. And this isn't just a recent problem. People have been complaining about their website since Al Gore invented it.

It always amazes me that a top notch, multi billion company like Disney can have such a terrible, inefficient website.
