VIDEO: “Hollywood Tower Hotel” sign has been removed from The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney California Adventure

in Disney's California Adventure, Disneyland Resort, Theme Parks

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.

    Sad but excited to see what’s in store w/GOG… The 1st time I took my eldest child on he was literally vibrating after. We had to sit on the concrete for a few mins as ppl stremed passed. He was about 5 then & is now 17. I felt bad but he said he loved it & kept returning. A good scare for sure.

  2. Thanks for the cool video and pictures. (What’s the music track you’re running in the background…I want to find it for more)

    Sad to see the attraction go (and bummed that the signage is gone before I’ll be there next month for my final rides and photos).

    Thanks for keeping us updated on progress.

    We went to Disney’s California Adventure last weekend and we didn’t see any signs on the tower. But we enjoyed riding the awesome attraction! It would be sad to see this ride to be vanished into dark world.

    Wow, what is this crap? It’s three months before the refurbish is supposed to take place! You’re a bit early, Disney. D:<
