Not sure why there are so many thumb downs .. my intention was just to remind people who signed up for that 3 year deal a month or two ago, which was quite popular, about the service finally going live. ... Definitely did not expect this type of response :p

Welcome to the mercer of deal posting!

SDers are a fickle bunch. Alot depends on the quantity/quality of people logged in during the deal posts or alerts set up.

I've witnessed 1st hand a few times where exact the exact same deals/PSA gets posted days apart get 2 wildly difference responses.

thanks for the discussion!

I have a question but first some context: I prepaid for three years. I have a D23 account. When I go to Disney Plus, I don't see a link for log in. I know the service is not active yet but I would love to be able to log in simply to see acknowledgement of account. When I sign in to my D23 account, I dont see any acknowledgement that I have a Disney Plus account and I see no linkage to my 3 year subscription.
Now for my question; How will log in work? Is it via D23? Is there a separate log in for disney plus? My family is pestering me and I dont know what to tell them. thanks
