I'm trying to do online check in and the site is unavailable. Has anyone completed the online check in?

That link just worked for me, and I am 50 days out. But there was no way to add or check anything in the "special requests" section. Is that normal? We will be an AKL and I thought there would be some options for which section/trail we want? There isn't even the typical "near transportation" type generic options to choose from.

I've been trying for the past week to do online check in. Friday I called their tech people and they took me through to the mydisneyreservation.com and my reservation comes up but I still can't check in. The tech person said I was the third person from the Pop not able to do the on-line check in, so it was reported. She told me to try back in 24-48 hrs. Still trying here for a check in on 1/6. I'm a bit nervous to arrive without checking in first. When we were there in December I had done the online check in so my packet was ready, but their computers were down so they were having to get us rooms via the telephone. Having my packet was really a time saver for our cast member. I really feel for the cast members on the front line with this, the tech people were still very upbeat and super exited about how great the new site will be once the glitches are taken care of.

I've been trying all today without any luck, I just keep getting Goofy telling me that online check-in is unavailable and to try again later I wonder if there's an ETA on when it'll actually be working. I'm 10 days out from my trip and I'd like to be able to put in some requests.

I have NEVER been able to add ANY requests during online check-in for any of our last 3 trips. I learned long ago, the best way to add requests is by calling and having them added to your reservation. Been successful 100% of the time doing it that way.

During online check-in is NOT the time, or method, to add requests. It's best to call and have them added to your reservation.

is it best to do online check in even if you are staying club level? Sorry if this is a basic question, but online check in was not an option when we went 4 years ago. TIA

I have never stayed club level, but I have read post here from people who have and they recommend not doing online check-in if staying club level. There's no advantage to online check-in when staying club.

after trying just less than 4000 times I managed to get onto the old site and check in that way. So frustrating!!

I've been trying that link for several days, and although it brings up my reservation, it doesn't allow me to do online check in. I am really frustrated at this point.
