Following extensive strain on the Walt Disney World backend systems, Disney has decided to turn off in-park Guest WiFi. We first noticed that there were struggles with connectivity early this morning when virtual queues were activated to assist with merchandise demand. From there, connectivity was spotty throughout the morning into the early afternoon. Then, the WiFi was cut off. According to multiple BlogMickey.com sources and Cast Members in the park, the decision to turn off in-park WiFi was made to mitigate issues with the ongoing use of the virtual queue, but that Disney is looking to bring WiFi back online.
Guests in the park might experience intermittent connectivity this afternoon into the evening as Disney works to resolve the issue.
