in Walt Disney World

Over the last few days, we have been reporting on the popular attraction, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, as it’s been experiencing prolonged downtime due to technical difficulties. 

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster was experiencing technical difficulties to start off the New Year — from January 1 through January 5, the popular Disney’s Hollywood Studios attraction remained unexpectedly closed. However, it looks like today the ride is back up and running, currently posting a 45-minute wait.

As you can see below, the My Disney Experience app is currently showing Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster with a wait time instead of saying “temporarily closed.”

At the time of this article’s publication, we still are not sure what caused this prolonged downtime, but attractions can experience technical difficulties from time to time. We are glad to see that Guests can once again grab a backstage pass and race to see Aerosmith in concert.
