When visiting Disney World, Guests may often enter their theme park of the day with a plan, and in that plan, riding your favorite attraction may be your goal!

Unfortunately, although Disney World often runs smoothly, there are times that when you arrive, the attraction you want to ride will be temporarily closed. Even when an attraction is not closed for refurbishment, there is always a chance that something could go awry and technical difficulties could occur.

Today, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, two major roller coasters have been closed for quite some time. As we can see below, WDW Stats (@WdwStats) has shown that Slinky Dog Dash, the incredibly popular Toy Story Land coaster has been closed since the park opened at 9 a.m. today.

Slinky Dog Dash has been temporarily interrupted. On average, an interruption takes 103 minutes.

Disney describes this attraction as:

Stretch Your Imagination
Andy’s assembled his Mega Coaster Play Kit—and Slinky Dog is taking you on a wild ride. Slinky Dog’s springy coils stretch to the limit as you bend around curves, zoom up hills and drop back down.

A spring is a marvelous thing—and this attraction is wonderful fun for the entire family!

Then, on the other side of the park, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster starring Aerosmith has been closed for about an hour now. WDW Stats shared:

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith has been temporarily interrupted. On average, an interruption takes 27 minutes.

The stretch-limo coaster is described as:

Live Life in the Fast Lane
Inside their Hollywood music studio, legendary rock band Aerosmith is wrapping up a recording session. When their manager tells them they’re late for a concert across town, the band invites you to ride along.

Hop into their gleaming limousine and speed off into the night as Aerosmith’s hard-rock harmonies fill the air. Buckle up before zooming through the city on this roller-coaster style attraction.

Rock This Way
Speed through iconic Hollywood landmarks. Maneuver past traffic jams and swoop into 3 thrilling inversions—2 rollover loops and one corkscrew—as the wind races across your face.

Will you make it to the year’s biggest concert in time?

State-of-the-Art Sound
Your super-stretch limo is decked out with a 125-speaker, 24-subwoofer, 32,000-watt audio system.

Each vehicle broadcasts different Aerosmith hit songs, including “Walk This Way,” “Dude (Looks Like a Lady),” “Sweet Emotion” and “Back in the Saddle.” The classic “Love in an Elevator” was rewritten as “Love in a Roller Coaster” specifically for this rocktastic attraction.

Both coasters often have at least an hour wait time, so for now, it seems that the majority of Guests will have no choice but to line up for other attractions, which may leave other lines with a longer wait time than others, considering two major attractions are not there to eat up the crowds with their lines.

Most recently, at Magic Kingdom, we reported on long attraction closures for Space MountainCarousel of Progress, and Haunted Mansion. That being said, if you ever experience a situation like this while at the Disney Parks, whether it be Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, or Disney’s Animal Kingdom, keep checking back on My Disney Experience as it will have the most up to date information regarding attraction wait times.

As an update, after remaining closed for two hours, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith has now reopened:

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith has been reopened after an interruption of 120 minutes.

Have you ever noticed an attraction you wanted to ride at Disney World was closed, although it was not meant to be?
