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.

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