I have to call the technical support number at some point and discuss it with them, and then likely call Member Services and have the apostrophes removed from my account - and who knows what can of worms that might open...
Dont know if its the same for you but we have a hyphen in our surname and ours works by just leaving it out.

If you are outside the U.S., it seems you can't access it yet.

If you are in the US, go to www.waltdisneyworld.com, and look on the upper right.

No, leaving it out doesn't work.

Oh, that's much better then, TDC Nala, thank you. I was wondering how they were going to do both systems with passholders. Hmm should be interesting.

This is worth repeating. The magic band will not contain ANY information other than your personal Disney reference number. All the other information - resort, room, ADRs, tickets, FPs, charging, even name and celebrations - will be stored on Disney's servers to be called up on demand using that account/file number. That's how the bands will be able to be reused, and it is how "adding" an AP is possible, and it is how your credit card information will be secured.

It is also why the worries about "What if some unsavory character is walking around the parks with an RFID reader?" are unfounded; we aren't all going to be walking around with wristbands capable of broadcasting our names and credit card numbers willy-nilly, and stealing anything from the bands will require access to a computer terminal that can access Disney's servers.

This is too level-headed. You must be lost...

Thanks for posting this so clearly and concisely. Now I can refer others to it!!

Okay we have DVC Ap's....so that would mean we would be allowed 20 FP per person per quarter. We usually visit twice a year each for 7 days. That means I would get less than 3 FP per day per visit?

This rumor seems to have gone pretty cold. Last we heard Disney was still trying to figure out what to do for AP holders.
