Things don’t always go as planned, even in the most magical place on Earth. A system outage at Magic Kingdom has left guests waiting for hours to get into the park today, according to multiple social media posts.

  • The outage reportedly only affected guests attempting to enter the park with barcoded tickets and not those entering with a MagicBand.
  • Some guests described the situation as a “horror show” as they were forced to wait outside the park for up to two hours in the heat.
  • According to some posts, guests were given free water during their wait.

  • A Disney spokesperson confirmed that there was an "unfortunate interruption” in the ticketing system, but the system is now reportedly back up and running.
