Disney+’s Launch Spectacularly Failed—and the Comments on Twitter are Hilarious

The much anticipated launch of Disney+, Disney’s new streaming service, came with one unsurprising glitch—first day technical difficulties. Many users are able to login, but when they ask to change their password, pages won’t load and nothing can be streamed.

The heavily publicized Nov. 12, 6 a.m. ET launch proved to be too much for the site, citing in a tweet, “The consumer demand for Disney+ has exceeded our high expectations. We are working to quickly resolve the current user issue. We appreciate your patience.”

Perhaps the site crashed due to so many parents and their kiddos anticipating watching movies and shows no other streaming services offer, from fan favorites like The Mandalorian, the Toy Story trilogy and Lizzie McGuire to classics like The Parent Trap and Monsters, Inc. for only $6.99 a month plus a seven-day free trial. Oh, did we mention it’s completely ad-free? We get the hype. It’s been marked on our calendars too!

Through the technical difficulties, leave it to Twitter users to find the humor in it all and laugh through the launch’s failure. Here are some of the most hysterical reactions to the currently trending #DisneyPlusDown and #DisneyPlusFail.

It’s definitely taken an emotional toll on some.

Twitter users are calling Disney+ the Fyre Festival of 2019.

This is probably what Disney headquarters are looking like right about now.

We can only imagine how many anxious kiddos—and mostly their parents—are trying to log in as we speak.

We really didn’t deserve this, Disney.

LOL, we all know a mom who didn’t sleep last night ahead of this launch.

Deep breaths, mama.

OK, we really wish Holes was going to be on Disney+.

There goes one precious sick day down the drain. Thanks, Disney.

This is every mom working from home today.

As much as we can’t wait to watch Inside Out, this hurts.

Can’t win ‘em all.

They really dropped the ball on this one. P.S., we can’t wait to watch Lion King.

We can almost taste the nostalgia.

It’s just one of those days.
