Disney sites suffer an outage

The lights went out for a while Wednesday morning for ESPN, Disney.com, and ABC News. The cause of the problem was unclear.

Disney sites---ESPN, Disney.com, and ABC News---were down across the board for about an hour or so Wednesday.

It's unclear what happened, but there were multiple network failures. We tried multiple trace routes and monitoring services and they were all ugly.

Disney reps weren't immediately available for comment, but the sites appear to have returned to normal a little after 7 a.m. PST.
