Disney’s Special Offers Land Guests In Lengthy Online Queue

Well, apparently we aren’t the only ones that like a good Walt Disney World Resort deal! With the news breaking of two new Disney special promotions available, it seems like the Walt Disney World website is overloaded with Guests which resulted in a virtual waiting room.

The two promotions include first a chance to save up to $500 on a 5-night stay at a select Walt Disney World Resort hotel. You can find the details here. The second promotion is especially great for Annual Passholders and Florida Residents looking to save up to 25% on select Disney World Resort hotels. Here are the details for that promotion.

So, of course, when great deals come out, Disney fans rush to the action! But, when visiting the Walt Disney World website, you may find yourself in a waiting queue.

Currently, as shown in the image below, when visiting the promotions page, you’ll find an image of Space Mountain with “We’re Almost in Orbit”. The Disney text goes on to say, “Thank you for your continued patience. Hang in there are you are making progress. We have a lot of Guests accessing our system, so you are now in a waiting room. Don’t refresh the page or select the back button.” This approximate wait time was 31 minutes.

Once you DO get in, Guests are allowed to spend 10 minutes on the site before being removed from the page as shown in the screenshot below:

If you can’t get through on the Walt Disney World website, keep in mind you can always reach out to an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner you can trust like Mickey Travels. They’ll help you get the best Disney travel deal, share expert advice and their services are totally FREE.

Best of luck snagging a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, Disney fans!

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
