The platform experienced some major connection errors

What was supposed to be a day of binge watching and all around nostalgia turned into a day of annoyance and dissatisfaction with Disney+.

While many people were excited to experience their favorite shows and movies on this platform, they soon realized that wasn’t going to happen due to some technicial difficulties.

The problems started early on November 12, after many user experienced either log-in failures or problems accessing specific content.

Instead of users diving right into an extensive library of Disney classics as well as new original movies and series, they were served with a Wreck-It Ralph message telling them to please try again later.

According to Downdetector.com, there were over 8,000 reports about technical issues made by 9 a.m. on November 12.

While Disney has been working hard to resolve these issues, there are some people who are still having problems with the platform.

Following their ongoing complaints surrounding technical difficulties, Disney+ released a statement on the issue and assured fans that they are doing everything they can to rectify the situation.

“The demand for #DisneyPlus has exceeded our highest expectations,” the streaming service tweeted. “We are so pleased you’re excited to watch all your favorites and are working quickly to resolve any current issues. We appreciate your patience.”

Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on this issue

Seeing as though many people were looking forward to watching their favorite shows and movies on this platform, you can easily guess the anger they felt when these problems ensued.

While many people tried to assess the issues themselves, others took to Twitter to share their disdain over these unnecessary technical issues.

#DisneyPlus off to a great start #fail,” one user tweeted.

“Tonight I’ve been staring at the help screen calling your customer service line trying to figure out what’s going on with my account, wishing I was like everyone else watching their @disneyplus accounts! Only +thing I’ve got is over 6+ hours of no help! #fail,” another user explained.

“When you’ve been waiting for @disneyplus and their launch fails miserably but all you wanted is to watch That’s So Raven,” someone else wrote.

While complaints are still making their rounds on Twitter, Disney+ is working non-stop to give users the experience they deserve.

So, it will only be a matter of time before everyone is reliving the golden days of Disney and getting their daily DCOM fix.

And if you’re someone who is still on the fence about getting Disney+, we are confident the streaming will be worth it once they work out their issues.
