Downdetector, a website that monitors web outages, showed that there had been a big spike in people reporting problems with their Disney+ service — just as the latest episode of WandaVision dropped around midnight on the West Coast.
Deadline understands, however, that the issues were confined to just 2,300 users and that Disney+ did not crash entirely.

This is not the first time Disney+ has suffered issues around the time a WandaVision episode has gone live. The streamer went down for around 10 minutes in February as episode seven landed.
