Playing a previously played (and stopped) UMG animation doesn't work properly if the visibility of that widget was changed in the same frame as the PlayAnimation node. If PauseAnimation is used instead of StopAnimation, the animation will play as expected.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create a widget with some animation
  2. Set up the blueprint in the attached picture
  3. Start PIE and hit Space to start the animation. Hit S to stop it, then Space to start it again
  4. Notice that the animation doesn't play the second time
