    :welcome: to the DISboards! We are so happy you decided to join us by reading and hopefully joining in with our vibrant Disney community. This Welcome Board is the Reception Desk for the DISboards-- a place to post and say hello and ask questions.

    As moderators we may move your question to another forum here where you are more likely to get the answers you are looking for.

    You will need to register on the DIS in order to post questions on our boards. You must enter a username, if you choose one that is already in use on the DIS you will recieve a message stating it is in use and must select another. In order to start a thread or post a reply just click on the appropriate button. We encourage you to sign up, it is fast, free and fun!


    We hope that these Common Frequently Asked Questions will help you to get acquainted with our boards and get you started enjoying the boards. Many questions are Technical in nature as far as how these boards work. If you have further questions on a Technical topic or a question that is not answered here please post it on our Technical Support Board: http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&daysprune=&f=43

    **** Please be sure you are not trying to post on the COMPLETED TRIP REPORTS board. That board is READ ONLY and does not allow any posting. :surfweb:***

    If you are having problems with your account please follow the directions below. Also please read the Tech Support Forum and the "New Board Issues" subforum there.


    If you have technical questions please read the FAQ post above or check out the Tech Support board linked above. Please don't post Technical questions on the Welcome Board.

    If you have an issue with your account, are unable to retrieve a lost password, or are no longer able to post please send an email to support@wdwinfo.com from the email address you gave when you registered, include your username, and a brief explanation of what the problem is. If you no longer have access to that address you can use a different one but please include the email of the account you registered with. It can take up to a week for you to get a response.

    If you are a current or formerly ACTIVE MEMBER that has all the sudden lost the ability to post on the boards there are 2 possible reasons:

    During the board switchover in February 2015 some accounts were deactivated. If you have not used your account since February and it is now no longer working please follow the instructions above.

    One of the most common reasons an active member is no longer able to post is that you changed your email address on the account and haven't confirmed the change. You will need to go into the email account you were using and find the email from the DISboards that has a link to click to confirm that you have changed the email address. If you no longer have access to that account or can't find the email we sent then please follow the directions in red above, providing both your former and current email address and an explanation of the problem.

    Once you have completed the registration process and your account is active you will be free to post on all of the other boards here.

    Occasionally some ISPs block emails coming from the DIS. You would need to contact your email provider for help with this.

    Thanks for your patience :) Feel free to start a private conversation with me if the steps above don't solve your problem.
