Minecraft Server disconnection

Every time i try playing a saved world a message pops up and says "Connection to server failed. Returning to main menu." and it wont let me play unless i create a new world. How do i get it to stop disconnecting me and allow me to play in the worlds i already have saved?

Unfortunately, this error is still ongoing and there is nothing that can be done until it is fixed. I'm sorry I know this is frustrating but you will just have to be patient. Keep your eye on that status.

There is nothing you can do until Microsoft and the Minecraft developers fix the problem. If you look on here, it will tell you when it's fixed support.xbox.com/.../xbox-live-status

I bought my son an Xbox yesterday purely for Minecraft. Every time he crates a world and saves it - it won't reload any of the saved worlds. Says it cannot connect to server.... He can only play in tutorial mode. I have spent too much money for this not to work. Please advise

Some of our Xbox LIVE Silver members keep getting an error when they try to load a saved game in Minecraft, and that’s no good!  We’re hard at work with the game developers to nail down a fix for the problem, don’t worry.  We just want you back to mining and crafting.  Thank you for being so patient with us! We’ll have another update for you when we have more information.

They have yet to update so I assume this same issue is still occurring. I recommend you keep an eye on the support page for the time being.
