Without the ability to use their online systems, guests risk losing their window to book FastPasses and dining, which can make or break some vacations.
Yep, though I just wanted to pick my magic band colors for next year, so I feel really bad for those who have more important business on their site.

Guests on Twitter have also said that FastPass kiosks at Walt Disney World are also non-operational, which makes obtaining FastPasses, at this point, impossible.

Cast members are also being affected by this outage, as the Walt Disney Company’s intranet, called The HUB, is also down.
There is no word on what caused this outage, or when the Disney systems will be brought back online.

UPDATE: As of 8:40 p.m. EST, Walt Disney World Today tweeted that their systems were operational once again.
After checking for ourselves, we saw that the Disneyland app was also operational, and got confirmation from cast members that The HUB was also working. It should be only a matter of time before we get confirmation that all systems are back online for the Disney Parks.
