Once again, the rumors were true. Over the weekend, word began to spread that the “Hollywood Tower Hotel” sign might be removed from Disney California Adventure’s The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror building as early as this week, and indeed as of this morning it has happened.
Even though it isn’t scheduled to close until early January and Disneyland Resort is heavily promoting its “Late Check-Out” farewell, the powers that be have apparently decided to begin dismantling the ride’s facade well in advance of its swan song. My best guess is that this will expedite the eventual transformation into Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout, but in my opinion it’s a shame fans won’t have the opportunity to enjoy the full Twilight Zone Tower of Terror experience in the attraction’s final months.
Be sure to visit Disney California Adventure before January 3rd to get what you can out of the Tower of Terror before the rest of it disappears forever into the Twilight Zone.
