I think if you haven't switched to the new Disney website design it won't load.

Yep. 60 days. Do you really need 2 months to check in?

At the top of the page, it asked if I wanted to switch to the new version.

Love the 60 days as for me it is just makes the trip that much closer. Doesn't mean you have to do it at 60 days.

Oh, and I had trouble using Firefox. Could get to the new version but then got an error message at some point. Google Chrome did work for me.

This . There was text in the upper right portion of the screen to prompt it. I still don't know if I like it or not though.

Oh, maybe that's not showing up because I'm on my iPad??

Maybe I'll hop on my laptop later.

I tried to do online check-in for our January trip just now, though, and it said unavailable, check back later.

I don't know about needing 60 days advance check in. Too many things can happen. What if you need to cancel or move your dates or even want to change your resort and you've already done the online check in? Are there any issues with that? Maybe it has something to do with the whole "make your ride reservations at home" process, but considering Disney doesn't do the final tweek to their hours until about two weeks out, they would need to get their ducks in a row before it could be really helpful.

I would feel comfortable at 15 days. Jury Duty notices are mailed in my county four weeks ahead, so I can be reasonably sure I won't get one by 15 days out.

Personally, I'd rather they would do it like Hilton properties do. There is only a 36 hour window for online check in, but you get to select your room number when you do the check in process. I would like the ability to see what rooms are open and make my choice in advance.

Anyone have a hard time retrieving their ressie? I could pull mine up fine on the old version but the new version can not find it. I entered my confirmation number, last name, date of check in and hotel but it keeps saying ressie can not be found as entered. I booked through AAA.

Are you sure you are using the Disney confirmation number and not an AAA itinerary number or something? I just did the upgrade, and uploaded my trip for next month that I booked through a third party. I did get a message halfway through the process that said their system could not access all the details of the reservation, but it did locate it and it's on the My Reservations page.

I use three different computers in the course of the day, so I'm going to leave one on the old site at least until I'm sure my online check in for next month goes through right.
