Yo, this same thing is happening to me
I have time warner cable too
Sometimes when I do get stuck and it manages to get me past the loading screen, anything I try to cast doesn't cast but people who aren't having this problem can see me cast a spell. For example, I'd cast Horn of Winter and it won't do anything on my screen but other people can see me cast it. Also chat still works when this happens.
^^^exact same thing happens to me.
not having any problem getting into the game, besides having to log in four times and click my server a few times haha

Update: I was able to load this character on another computer. However, I still cannot load this character on the computer of the initial freeze.
I created a new character on the freezing machine and it works okay. Something is still strange with the interface. The UI scale never changes regardless of the setting. I had it on max on the other character. The new character seems to be always at 1.0 regardless of setting.
this exactly is my problem. it's been going on for nearly a month now. Why am I paying to play a game that is unplayable?
Thanks for bumping, wouldn't have seen this otherwise.
I have the exact same issues as others described here. Can log in normally without issue, but if I dare to release my corpse or enter/exit an instance, that's the end of my WoW playing. Have to end the WoW process manually.

I'm playing from the same area, with the same issues. I have a real-life friend with the same issue.
This issue with the network edges that TWC takes to the Chicago datacenter has not been resolved, or that specific issue was not the root cause. There have been a number of threads today with a few posts each reporting that the issue is still persisting.
I understand that threads get derailed with people complaining about general lag, but I am experiencing these same exact symptoms (load bar never goes away, restart client, log in to get instant d/c, next login may or may not work).
I'm not sure that the flight issue or spontaneous lag is related, but I can vouch that the load bar issue still persists in that exact fashion for me. The only latency I do get is occasionally after loading completes where I have to restart my client to fix it. Everyone starts running on a treadmill while chat works mostly (e.g. party doesn't work but say does, whispers work but say doesn't, etc,), and I have to restart the client.

I agree. Raid waiting for me to alt+f4 and reload game is starting to get annoying.
zoning into or out of dungeons gives me the boot 25-75% of the time depending if it wants to ruin my day or just irritate me a little
only dungeons not world travel- i havent tried pvp
no lag spikes either
its really hard to gear up in randoms to begin with
now I'm getting saved to groups that are kicking me because of this
altF4 isn't even fast enough to get back in most of the time
as if heroics weren't hard enough
tried everything i could think of on my end
been happening since cata release not before ever but everyday since
only thing heard from blizz is send tracer and problem fix'd
but it aint
this toon this server twc every gd time ive been on since patch
the gear ive managed to aquire so far is a testament to my patience
maybe i should just cancel my account and go play xbox live instead
cuz I've been all up in these forums for weeks and getting jerked around would be an improvement from being ignored
this has been going on in so many topics for so long that im starting to recognise ppl from previous threads still having the same problem i do
i opened a ticket to day on it too cuz im getting no response here

Just happened again. Completed heroic Throne of Tides and left the dungeon to zone back into Uldum. Loading bar filled up to 100% and just sat there.
More backstory: I noticed this first happening about a week after Cata hit. I to, like many of the other folks it seems, am in the Rochester NY area if it is a geo IP issue again.
I have this exact issue as well, it has been occurring since the release of cataclysm.
I also live in Albany, NY and use TWC.
When this occurs I try to run a traceroute on whatever IP addresses TCPview shows WoW using. This is the typical result:
