UPDATE: Walt Disney World Website and My Disney Experience Mobile App Access Restored

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

UPDATE: The site and app are now accessible.


 

According to a tweet from @WDWToday, the Walt Disney World website and My Disney Experience app are completely down and unavailable at this time.

This means the FastPass+ system, both redeeming current and booking new FastPasses, the dining reservation system, including checking in to a restaurant and making new reservations, and the resort reservation system, including checking in or out of your Disney resort, are all currently not operating at this time.

This also means the systems that support the My Disney Experience app are down, which means the app is non-functional. Don’t expect to open your resort room door with your digital key!

“Guests may experience challenges” is an impressively euphemistic way of saying the app and website are completely unusable!

Stay tuned to WDWNT for updates on this rather embarrassing situation!

I don’t know about you, but there are times when planning a Disney vacation can be overwhelming! There are so many options, where to stay, when to go, is this the best price. So, I want to introduce you all to Cindy Minor and the team at Small World Big Fun. They will help you plan your Disney vacation for FREE. Contact them today!

About the author

Jason Diffendal

Jason has been a lifelong fan of the Disney parks since his first visit at age 2. His biennial pilgrimages during his childhood accelerated into semi-annual visits by the year 2000, when he also Joined the Disney Vacation Club. Luckily, Jason’s bride-to-be was also a Disney fan, which allowed his infatuation with the Disney parks to continue, and ultimately culminated in their wedding at Disney's Wedding Pavilion in September 2003. Early in 2007, Jason began his involvement with the planning for what became Celebration 25, the unofficial fan gathering to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Epcot®. Soon thereafter, Jason met Tom Corless at a pin trading meet in New Jersey, and became part of the WDW News Today podcast starting with Episode 17. Jason has been involved with the WDWNT Network ever since, and can't seem to escape no matter how hard he tries.

  • As someone who works in the consumer-facing online world, these types of outages happen occasionally and aren’t totally unexpected. (And they arent fun.)

    What will be more intriguing is to see the actual root cause analysis (if we ever get access to it) and WDW’s response.

    I’d be on the lookout for these types of questions and answers:
    Was the outage caused by human error? (process changes)
    Was the outage part of normal change management? (process changes)
    Was the outage due to unexpected demand or load on the back-end infrastructure? (more infrastructure to provide higher availability and redundancy)
