In the image above, you can see the iconic guitar sitting outside of the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster show building. Many Guests tend to use this guitar as a backdrop for the picture-perfect photo. Well, if you are planning on visiting Hollywood Studios in the near future, you may want to find a new photo spot as Disney has covered up the iconic guitar with scaffolding!

Inside the Magic was visiting Hollywood Studios today and noticed that the guitar cannot be seen from afar and, instead, giant brown scaffolding is up.

At this time, we do not know why Disney covered up the guitar, but it could be relating to the upcoming 50th anniversary, which kicks off in just a few days!

We already know that Imagineers have been repainting several attractions at Magic Kingdom, including Peter Pan’s Flight, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Jungle Cruise, and more! Therefore, whatever the reasoning behind the scaffolding is could be related to the 50th anniversary as well.
