According to a report by CBS MoneyWatch, a Disney spokesperson blamed user error when it came to reported “glitches” in the Disney Park Pass system. Of course, we’ve reported about widespread glitches, even offering workarounds that our readers have reported success with.
We found out that a longstanding error that incorrectly prioritized certain ticket types over other ticket types led to the glitches, and that once users took the steps we outlined in our workaround, the system worked as Disney probably intended it to function from the start. Of course, the system not working as expected and certain ticket types, like the cancelled Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party ticket, blocking users from successfully utilizing the system could be called a glitch. Here is what CBS is reporting:
A Disney spokesperson told CBS MoneyWatch the reservation system had no such glitch. Disney had made the system available Monday first for people with a previous Disney World resort reservation, the spokesperson said. The system will be available for annual pass holders this Friday and for the general public on Sunday.
People who couldn’t reserve Monday probably thought it was a glitch, but in reality, they were likely trying to book before it was their turn, the spokesperson said.
