Fans Have Had Enough of Disney’s “Glitches”

Anyone who has ever tried to buy a coveted Disney event ticket will know just how frustrating it can be. Guests were stuck in virtual queues lasting hours long. At one point, Oogie Boogie Bash sales paused due to a website error. Disney released a statement saying;

“Er are aware of a technical issue with Oogie Boogie Bash ticket sales, which have been temporarily paused. Teams are working to find a resolution as quickly as possible. We will update the website when we know more.”

Some Guests were reporting waiting in seven-hour-long queues for the event. To make matters worse, if you leave the website idle and miss your 10-minute buying opportunity, you have to start all over again from the beginning. Basically, Disney allowed thousands of fans to waste an entire day away in a virtual queue.
