Failed Disney Launch

This is so unacceptable. You clearly didn't do any load testing or planning for this Launch. I've been trying to activate my FREE 1 YEAR OR DISNEY PLUS which I have still been unable to activate after 24 hours. Your chat is the worst I have experienced and idk who designed it but it is terrible, worst UX. Who planned this? Didn't Disney give you anticipated downloads? No one prepared. This is rediculous. 

I'm just trying to find out what happened on That's So Raven

Kendallswim, we don't want you missing out on any shows from Disney+. My goal is to make sure that we get you up and running with this promotion. I'm sorry that you're having trouble with getting set up with Disney+. Can you please share some details as to where you're running into the issue? Were you able to add the promotion through your My Verizon (app or website)? Please keep me posted. KevinR_VZW

It took me under 3 minutes start to finish to have my sub and a few profiles made.

The only hiccup was service was down shortly after from the influx of new subscribers, but that didn't last long.

Verizon has nothing to do with Disney servers. Disney has also been around way longer than Verizon has so millions who don't even have Verizon were signing up too. Your post to complain at Verizon over this is counterproductive.

I've been having issues also, I signed up, it says my account was activated, but every time I would log in, it would take me to a screen that wants to finish up and pick a payment option?

At least you actually have the option to sign up for it. I have 3 eligible lines and not a single one even shows the Disney+ option in the Addons, and support has been uesless. So much for addons. =/

Yeah, that's not cool, I wonder why they just didn't give out access codes or something, I understand how there are so many issues considering the amount of ppl that could get it, but there should've been a better way to do it, hopefully we all get this taken care of quickly

@Tigerstep do you work in customer service? do you design UX or customer service platforms? Are you a digital project manager? Have you ever planned for a launch like this? do you manage sites with +1billion hits a year or day? didn't think so...

i made multiple attempts from 3pm-11pm EST and they finally told me when i called in that they had issues on their end which is why I wouldn't be able to do it last night. Nothing short about that

also the chat experience and service experience was poor and not adequetly planned for volume. 

Yes Verizon deserves it. and I will admit I am particularly salty about it considering when Hurricane Michael hit last October their service was out for MONTHS

Few things about my experience:

 
1. Your chat  experience: options are not vague enough. if I see 'connect me with an agent' connect me with an agent. i understand you can use chat to pull info from your FAQs and serve them to customers easily to solve issues or trim them from the que but CMON if I know to say that then I know i cannot find what i need on the site. Also when there are no agents available it tells me to 'try again later' no if I want to sit in your que for 30 minutes so I will be next in line that is my choice
 
2. Your live agent experience - when I was connected i had to say the same thing literally 7 times in multiple ways and they either avoided the question or you have ai posing as a real person that doesn't work. If it says 'live agent' it needs to be a live person with brain cells. I work in the digital customer service industry, I know what information they need and how to probe so I communicate that way and it is very direct. my chat agent is not trained properly and it was a complete waste of time. Plus if you leave the screen (like if they tell you to do something or answer a text on mobile) it ends the chat. why. what is the point? whose idea was that. my question for the record was: should i be tring to do this on desktop vs mobile? should i go through the app or through the browser.... is that really that confusing for a DIGITAL CUSTOMER SERVICE AGENT 
 
3. The integration between Verizon and Disney+: 3.2 million doesn't really surprise me and shouldn't have surprised you...also the integration between Verizon and Disney+ broke immediately. So you should have taken the tiles off your site....and told your chatters to stop telling people to try downloading it and that they aren't doing it right. For the record, I was attempting to do this on multiple devices from 3-11pm EST on Nov 13th
 
4. The phone wait experience: your chat is a poor experience. don't keep pushing people to go on chat especially if you don't have the resources to support it. also I am aware you had technical issues with Disney + last night. The automated message that started with the Disney + direction (that didn't work and what you were trying to fix) should have been disabled. I waited for 30+ minutes on hold
 
5. The agent I spoke to via phone: was great, helped me to the best of their ability with the resources at hand. was empathetic, competent, respectful, and transparent. I felt like they did everything they could to help me and listened to what i was saying and USED THEIR BRAIN. would give a 5/5 but only for this specific person, the rest of my experience until this interaction was horrible. and i left the call with an unresolved issue, i still have to call back tonight.

The demand for Disney+ has exceeded our highest expectations, and we apologize for the delay in responding. It’s as important to us as it is to you that we straighten this out.
