Supposedly, your device will show you a network named "Disney-Guest". Connect to that, agree to Disney's terms of service, and you're on.

Sounds like a good idea for the start of a song Diane :~ "I`m sitting at a railway station, got a ticket for my destination" etc.etc. :lol:

Yes, it was as simple as that. Next time you turn on your device it remembers you.
I was impressed with the speed too.

I was wondering about that. Do you think if you're staying at a resort there you'll have to keep logging on or it'll just remember you for your whole trip?

One you have logged on to a network your phone or device will remember it.

You have to keep logging on. It drops you like a hot potato, too so be ready for that. When you shut your computer down, it logs you off.

It seems to log you off after periods of un-use too, but I'm not sure about that because it keeps dropping me.

I am getting an icon that shows guest. With Disney Guest it asks for verification so I stay with guest. (It's the same icon that shows up at the resort).

Definitely needs improving.

Thought that might be the case. We were going to take our UK phones over and use Google + messenger to be in touch with each other in the parks, rather than getting a US phone and using text. If the WiFi keeps kicking you off that won't work though....

Usually you can get back on pretty quickly, but it is a ripping pain in the errrmmmm... neck. :D
