Today is the day that The Walt Disney Company launches Disney+, the company’s new streaming service set to compete with Netflix and Hulu in the upcoming streaming wars. With content from Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic, many people have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the service. It’s this high demand and anticipation that are causing problems at launch.
Those who already have subscribed to Disney+ have taken to Twitter to express their discontent with connectivity issues at launch. When trying to login to the website, an error message occurs. And when users finally log-in, some content seems to be missing, such as the various Star Wars films.
Here are some of the best tweets about the issues:

With #DisneyPlus, you too can stream all your favorite Disney titles, like “Content Not Available Right Now”, “Unable to Connect”, & “Please Try Again Later”

Disney released a statement later today addressing the issue:
The consumer demand for Disney+ has exceeded our high expectations. We are working to quickly resolve the current user issue. We appreciate your patience.
Disney+ is available now on all streaming platforms.
