Beginning on October 3rd, California Grill will be hosting a special 50th anniversary dining experience, with a new, limited time three-course 50th anniversary experience. Reservations just opened today, and it was an ORDEAL, full of glitches, so here’s what you may have to deal with.
You’ve spent HUNDREDS, and maybe even THOUSANDS, of dollars for a perfect Walt Disney World vacation, spent *days* securing your dining reservations, and spent time packing everything you think you might possibly need while at the parks.
The last thing you need to spend energy on? Worrying about everything that could possibly go wrong.
So we did that for you!
Disney may be a massive company that makes the big bucks, but even they aren’t immune to unexpected issues!
Over the years, we’ve seen all kinds of random problems in the parks, from weather-related shutdowns to tech glitches to animatronic malfunctions. And today, a huge internet and app outage is causing some issues at Disneyland Resort!
It’s the opening day of the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, and we’re having a BLAST!
We’ve eaten so much food (seriously, SO MUCH FOOD) and we’re still making our way around the park to check out all that this year’s event has to offer. We’ve been sharing all of our reviews and thoughts throughout the day, including all the details you need to know. But when we were checking out the festival resources on the My Disney Experience app today, we noticed something very odd!
When you go to Disney World for a vacation, it’s natural to want everything to go smoothly.
But unfortunately, sometimes things happen! Since so many aspects of your Disney World trip are now online or part of the My Disney Experience app, there are bound to be glitches and issues. We’re taking you through nine glitches that could impact your next Disney World vacation!
It’s a positively beautiful day to be headed to Disney World, and by the looks of it, we’re not the only ones who think so.
When we prowled up to Animal Kingdom today, we noticed that there were some looooooooong lines stretching back from the park gate. We’ve seen an uptick in crowds as time goes by since the parks reopen, but surely Animal Kingdom isn’t THIS slammed on a Wednesday! Don’t fear! We got to the bottom of it.
When you go to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, getting a boarding pass for Rise of the Resistance can be a bit of a challenge. But when you DO get one, all that panic refreshing at 10AM or 2PM feels soooo worth it.
This massive Star Wars ride, however, is quite technologically advanced, which means that it breaks down and experiences little glitches from time to time.
As Disney World resort guests with existing reservations became the first to access the Disney Park Pass system, there were apparently some serious glitches to deal with. Reports flooded in of lengthy wait times, inaccurate reservation limits, and falsely unavailable park days.
Let’s take a look at some of the glitches that guests encountered — and how to handle them for the next big Disney Park Pass day on June 26th (for Passholders without Resort reservations) or June 28th (for guests with just tickets).
If you recently sensed a great disturbance in The Force today, we think we might know why!
Due to what appears to be a glitch in Disney’s Online Reservations System, guests have been able to make reservations 190 days out — even without a valid resort reservation number.
The site’s booking calendar extends 190 days from today, and when a date is chosen that exists outside of the 180 day window, guests are prompted to enter their resort reservation number as usual. Interestingly, when I entered “12345678” for a reservation number, I was easily able to book a reservation for dinner at Le Cellier, breakfast at Chef Mickey’s, and dinner at Boma 190 days out (December 13th).
Interestingly, Cinderella’s Royal Table is considered in “invalid” restaurant when searching this way.
Maybe this is beta testing for a new system, or maybe it’s a glitch with the new online reservation system. Remains to be seen.
Thanks to Chris for the heads up!
