Interesting, thanks for the news.
Unfortunately, they use a splash screen...
"As a reminder, to connect to the Wi-Fi, all you’ll need to do is select the “Disney-Guest” network on your device, launch a browser, and agree to the terms."
Our cards have no way to negotiate these web pages. If the networks integrate with Easy WiFi, an Eye-Fi X2 card with a Hotspots subscription can hopefully get through and upload your photos. I see a lot of Easy WiFi compatible networks in that area on http://www.easywifi.com/
, so it looks promising!
that's one of the major points of the easy wifi network and hotspots- Easy wifi automates clicking through the splash screens for us- that's why the piles of ATT, panera, mcdonalds, etc, etc hotspots with splashscreens work for the eyefi cards (with the subscription). Easy wifi is amazing technology.
Someone just needs to log in to the disney network with a laptop saving all the webpages and then go to this site:http://www.easywifi.com/new-provider
and upload the forms and fill in the few questions.
Then easy wifi will update their servers and then anyone with an easy wifi device (including all of us with eyefi wifi cards) will automatically log in.
It just takes one person to "do the right thing" and then everyone is hooked up.
checking the maps at easywifi.com it looks like someone already "did the right thing" for "in room guest wifi (disney)" and ALL
the Disney hotels are set up for us. But i don't see any pattern in the parks (presumably they have a different log in then the hotels). Someone needs to schlep a laptop to a park to get the parks set up. (probably why wasn't done yet....). Might also be possible to save the proper pages with a smartphone but I'm not certain- I've never tried. Maybe someone adventurous could try from a laptop at the parking lots just outside the gates at animal kingdom, epcot, or the studios themepark- maybe the wifi goes out there.
But at least the hotels are set up for us. (and a few random pts in the parks like the interactive area at spaceship earth in epcot has service from siemens it seems.)
