I get that in hindsight; they should have disclosed that during the D+ account creation process.I get that I am just not surprised Disney did it this way because its what they do with everything.
Also, it is bad security practice to allow a password to be changed without providing the current password. Under this current setup, I could create a D+ account with someone else's email address, set a "new" D+ password, then log into MDE/DVC and further change account settings.If I had been asked to just enter my login and password information when I set up Disney+, that would have been a big red flag for me and I would have used a different email address for the Disney+ account right off the bat. But I was prompted to create a login and password. I probably wouldn't care about this if I hadn't given my kids the login info (which I did before I knew that password worked for every Disney account I have....and had credit cards linked to.) Fortunately, at this point, none of them know that password works for everything...and I've removed my credit card info at shopDisney and MDE for now. I don't mind that everything else has the same login info...I wouldn't ever share my password for those things with anyone else. But a streaming service....that can stream on 4 devices at once???? The chances of someone sharing that information with other people is pretty high. I think an obvious message stating that during the sign-up process would have been nice (instead of a "Your password doesn't match. Did you sign up for a Disney+ Account? Please use that password to log in to the this account" message). At least then each person could decide how they want to handle it right at the sign-up instead of having to sit on hold for who knows how long and then deal with the lovely Disney IT department to get it changed.
