For more than half an hour earlier this morning, the internet arm of The Walt Disney Company suffered a major outage, affecting access to all of its internally run sites, across the board from ESPN to Disney Parks and Resorts to Disney Store and potentially much more.
Visitors attempting to reach the sites, most of which are actually subhosts off of Disney’s GO.COM, were greeted with delays while their browsers attempted to communicate with the websites which were unresponsive, eventually timing out. The only responding server appeared to be that of DisneyStore.com, but it would return just a line of text resembling an md5 hash.
At press time, the sites appear to be back up and functioning normally.
UPDATE: DisneyStore.com appears to continue to have issues at this time.
UPDATE: DisneyStore.com now appears to be back up and completely operational, but DVCNews.com and others tell us that the Disney Vacation Club’s website at DVCMember.com continues to have issues on the backend once they login.
