‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ augmented reality app announced and abandoned

After missing the first Not-So-Scary party, Disney announced that the ‘Mayhem at the Mansion’ augmented reality app would be available for download on September 9th. Unfortunately, Disney had MyMagic+ technical issues on September 9th and it has indefinitely suspended release of the app. I hope they can get the app working soon because it looks  awesome!
