On Tuesday, Disneyland Resort announced its fastest-ever change from a virtual queue to a standby attraction line. Starting on February 22, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway will no longer offer virtual boarding groups. This comes less than a month after the cartoon attraction opened at the Southern California Disney Park.

However, some incidents suggest the attraction isn’t ready for a constant flow of Guests. Amid ongoing maintenance issues, a disturbing recent video from @disway800 shows the Daisy Duck face-projection animatronic experiencing a significant error:

“I hope Disney learns it’s lesson and stops with the projector faces,” @featherboxx commented.

“After all the moving parts that goes into this, why not just finish it and have an animatronic face?” asked @driver.t.

“Not everyone waiting a 15 hour line to watch a glitch,” @ashleyfaithxx3 wrote.

The animatronic’s face appeared to return shortly after the error occurred. Though it’s unknown if Daisy has been fixed, Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway was operating normally at the time of this article’s publication.
