Anyone who is still using IE7 is open to all kinds of security problems. Install IE9 from the Microsoft website. Better yet, install Google Chrome.

The IE7 issue is not Disney's problem. They need to create websites that incorporate CURRENT browser's. Upgrade or get some other computing equipment.

I agree but I was running IE8 which wouldn't access the new site. Upgraded to IE9 and cannot access the site. Also have Chrome which is fully up to date, which cannot access the site.

As an IT person, this is totally absurd. I hope someone gets fired for this one!

I'm running IE9 and Chrome on a Windows 7 machine. I've no problems accessing the new site.

I think the site really is down for maintenance at this time. I have not had any issues using Firefox, Chrome or IE7 until just now.

Site is back up. I was able to log in with Firefox & IE8. I didn't try Chrome or IE7 yet.

My work runs IE7 so upgrading the browser is not an option for me.

Don't worry, when one of the big bosses wants to access a site that is no longer IE7 compatible, I'm sure you'll get upgraded. Business usually works that way.

We're stuck on IE7 here at work, too. Unfortunately, I'm also in a really bad cellphone reception area. (Well, my phone tells me it has 4 bars at 4G, but I can never ever get internet connectivity.) I understand why my office hasn't upgraded, and I also understand why Disney didn't include IE7 support. That doesn't make it any less of a pain in the neck that I can't get into either the WDW or DVC sites any more during working hours.

I wouldn't mind dealing with funky text formatting and screens that don't quite look the way they were intended. (I've been finding work-arounds on other sites that aren't pretty, but at least get me what I need.) But that's not even an option with the Disney sites, as there isn't a log in button to get you past the first screen.

I can't use my iPad to look at my points. The other website was better. Also there's no easy way to book a reservation. First you have to choose Learn How to make a reservation then you can make the reservation. Why do they assume we don't know how to make a reservation?

A quick way into booking a vacation is under the 'My Vacations' drop down menu. The member website works best on the iPad if you hold it landscape.

I find that to be a step backwards too. At least provide a direct link to book like they had before and they can also have a section to learn how to make a reservation although with all the online booking for hotels etc. that has been going on for years booking for DVC is pretty self explanatory as you go thru it anyway.
