PHOTOS: Disneyland Ticket and Park Reservation Debacle Causing Technical Issues for Walt Disney World Services

On April 12, theme park reservations launched for Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure for guests who already had tickets. Today, new tickets became available and many more guests attempted to make reservations to visit one of the two parks that have been shuttered for over a year. Unfortunately, it seems Disney still wasn’t prepared for the amount of traffic both the Disneyland website and app would be receiving. If it feels like we write about events like this several times a year, it’s because we do.


Guests attempting to make a reservation were put in a virtual waiting room for accessing the reservations system.


Many encountered this “recalculating” error for extended periods of time as the system attempted to display a wait time.

The system most recently updated to display an approximate wait time of “more than an hour.”

The technical issues were also causing problems for and My Disney Experience, the Walt Disney World app. The app is displaying a message saying some digital experiences are currently unavailable.
