    Just an FYI. The online check-in 60 days out feature is in preparation of FP+. Once it officially rolls out, you will be able to make your FP+ reservations 60 days out. You will not be able to make any of your FP+ reservations until you have done online check-in. So if you see yourself utilizing FP+ once it officially rolls out, you will need to get used to doing online check-in.

    There has been no official word yet. But it has been in the testing phase for a couple months.

    For me, it's about credit card privacy. I enter the card when I do online check in, and the number is truncated so no one at the resort can see it. If I check in at the front desk, I have to hand the card over and the CM and others in the vicinity have the ability to see the number in full.

    I am within my 10 day window and am frustrated beyond belief that I can't get into online check in. If I can't get in to do it over the next couple days, I'll have to go with the alternate of doing everything with cash AND having to deal with full check in after a long day at work. Not how I planned on starting my WDW vacation. :(

    Have you tried doing online check-in at www.mydisneyreservation.com ?? That's how I was able to get checked in for my upcoming trip.

    Yes, I tried that one. I've spent my entire day off today on two different computers trying to check in. One would allow me into the old website, but when I tried to do online check in, it would skip over the page where you enter all your info and go right to the page where you can enter any celebration info. When I tried the mydisneyreservation, if I tried options one, three, or four, it would bring up the reservation info, but not allow me to go forward into the check in process. Option two gave me an error message that the URL was incorrect. And of course, the new website just says "Sorry!". 12 hours of work and I'm no closer to being checked in than I was before. I have become a master at deleting cookies and browsing history. Is there something else I should be erasing as well?

    I've made AAA reservations and Expedia reservations and reservations direct with Disney and I've always been able to check in online. I don't understand what the problem is, but I only have one more day to get it right before I have to go to plan B.

    Any ideas why it's not allowing me in? I'm open to all suggestions at this point.

    After reading about the FP+ I decided to do on line check in to see if I get picked for the FP+ trial :rolleyes: Will give it another go after our less then stellar experience with it in August. No split stay this time, so maybe it will go better :confused3

    I was able to do the check-in, on my iPad. I'm 21 days out. But can't even get into the WDW web site using my laptop :eek: I use Safari on both. I have no idea what is going on, but it sure is frustrating a lot of people.

    I feel like I climbed Everest, I actually was able to use online check-in!pixiedust: After trying all day yesterday, trying to do it either on the new site, the special link, trying to get back to the old site, nothing. This morning, I was actually given a link to the old website and it worked! Still can't link 1 dining reservation, no matter what I do, but hey, I got checked in!:yay:

    Just to let everyone know that one of the problems is for some reason the Disney Visa card is not being recognized. I was told by 2 different people one at IT to use another card and change to the Disney Visa when i checked in.

    Worst redesigned site ever.

    I have 2 room only reservations...they showed up...1 was right...no online check in....the other one was missing a person...called Disney got it fixed...still no online check in.

    Went back this afternoon...now the reservations are arriving and leaving 1 day earlier than expected....this goes beyond migrating data....it is just all around untested!
