    I was at DHS today and on Toy Story Mania Mr. Potato Head wasn't shown. He was behind curtains.

    Does this mean anything?

    Wait an AA is down!? No way, not at WDW. That's inconceivable!

    Happens all the time. Whenever he stops working the curtain covers him up until they can get him going again.

    Probably nothing. It's OK, no need to cry. Maybe there's a small problem in the AA, but it'll be back soon enough.

    Maybe, maybe not. Would anyone honestly be shocked if it was down for 3 months?

    Same thing happens frequently at DCA also. It's not WDW exclusive.

    It's probably just a minor crack in the foundation.

    Probably just a temporary breakdown....It's not a problem until it stops working for months/years at a time, a la Everest and Splash.

    I once saw the Windows icon bouncing around in his eyeballs as he sat static. There was a CM nearby furiously typing into a computer terminal. Was kinda funny...

    It doesn't mean anything... happens somewhat frequently. The curtain is there for that very reason.

    haha also in the Mushu show the screen with the animators wasn't working and it was hilarious cause the CM still talked to the blank screen as if it was the show XD

    It means it's broken in some way. At least this one is slightly more advanced, not like when Swedish Chef was behind a piece of wood.

    I will say that either I have really bad luck, or its just a problematic AA because I have only seen it working a couple times.
