Disney World's website

So, it seems that Disney rolled out their new site last year, then it went back to the old site again for months. And just a couple of days ago, I now get the new site again when logging in.

It looks like they've improved the interface quite a bit. Not nearly as sluggish as their first attempt.

But, why oh why did they remove "Duck Says"????? Is it still there hidden somewhere?

Hrmmm... I've had the My Disney Experience site for a long time now, so I'm not sure.

The countdown is now under the "My Disney Experience" tab, and it looks different, it's not Donald.

My countdown was always wrong. Each time I logged in under the old system, it was waaayyyy off. The new system works better and that is what I see when logging in now.

Well shoot... I just noticed that my countdown is off. I've got ADRs coming up soon here, guess I'll have to figure out which one is right!

Strange... I had the new site for a couple of weeks last year, then it went back to the old site. Its like they're running both sites at the same time. I only started getting the new site again a few days ago.

I'll look for that timer Kristen. Thanks!

I used to notice the same thing. What I found was that is was something to do with the browser cookies not getting updated properly. I found that logging out and then logging back in again would usually cause the timer to correct itself. Not sure about the new site yet as I've only started using it in the last couple of days.

I have my reservations on the My Disney App but no ticker! Anyone know why? Is it because I am not in the USA?

I think you only get it from the actual website not from the app. At least I haven't found it on the app on my iphone! And if you go straight to "my itinerary" or something like that, you don't get it immediately.

Yeah the ticker is not on the app, just the actual web site. I have not seen the original web site in quite some time, and I would say I'm on the Disney site at least once a days checking on the California Grill.

I was really upset when the new site rolled out. On the old site, I knew where everything was and could navigate it very easily. My countdown would be correct sometimes but off sometimes. It was very annoying when it was off.

I have got it too! I didn't realise that the app and the website had different features from each other. Thanks for info.

That's great to hear! This will be our first stay at a Deluxe. Based on our experience, we may consider joining DVC.

That countdown is now at 14 days from today! clapping
