I was able to load my July DVC reservation and then book ADRs for all days during my stay. Unfortunatley, I had to book an ADR a day, right at the 180 day mark. I thought it was 180 + 10? Minor inconvienece.

My brother has had zero success booking ADR's. He logs in, and gets the dredded Donald pic with the message all are used to seeing. Using his IPad, he can access the "old" site and make ADRs just fine.

Funny experiment - I made an ADR using my account. Logged off and then let him log in on my computer. He tried to make an ADR and then got the Donald pic!

This happened to me too. Tried to make dining reservation 180 +1 based on our resort ressie (that is in their system) and it would not let me. I had to call and it was no problem, but took 15 minutes more than it had to.

I had the exact same experience. I was making reservations at the 180 day +10 mark and couldn't. This was back in December so I was able to switch back to the old site and do it. At that point, I cleared my cookies and said I didnt want to go to the new site...not sure if that could work now!

I have an iPhone 5 and this is the worst app I have ever downloaded.
I have downloaded and deleted this app approximately 6-10 times today.
It has frozen and it has just kept looking like it was getting ready to set but no such luck.
Now, I am trying to link my hotel ressie (I'll be 60 days out on January 22) and it keeps saying my Reservation Failed to Link, my confirmation number or phone number do not match Disney's records. THEN, today at work, I called and sure enough it was correct so there is no reason why the app is not finding the match?????
Can anyone please help or has this happened to anyone?

I just loaded the update on my iPhone (version 1.3). Hotel reservations are now available!

They don't show up on the "My Plans" section. But if you go to "More" you can find it.

Unfortunately, as I was typing this, my app had an "unexpected error" and logged me out. Now it won't let me log back in.

Really missing a ton of other classic characters, too.
THIS! I know it's a minor thing, but c'mon, The Incredibles but no Daisy Duck? The Old Guy from UP, but not his wife? Monsters Inc? Hope they come out with more!

Some things I have noticed...

I did notice a place to add credit card information now on the web site. I updated to the latest version of the app on my iPad and it does have a lot more options.

My DVC reservations are showing up for 2 of the four rooms I have booked. The other two rooms does not list me as an occupant, so I apparently cannot see them. I guess that is ok.

I linked my resort reservations through the web site and they showed up on the app, so they are "talking" to each other.

I am not having any trouble booking Dining Reservations and assigning them to members on my friends list. <friends list is not my friend>
