When visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Guests expect to experience jaw-dropping attractions like Tower of Terror, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster, and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. Guests also love the “fantastic” nighttime show featured at the Park.

Ever Since Walt Disney World Resort reopened, Guests have been eagerly waiting for Fantasmic! to return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The nighttime spectacular is a fan favorite, taking Guests on a journey into Mickey’s imagination, enjoying magical scenes with beloved Disney characters and battling fearsome villains with breathtaking sounds, sights, and effects.

However, earlier this morning, Guests encountered something far more real than any of these experiences.

A building collapsed at the entrance of the Park. The specific store was Keystone Clothiers, a popular shopping location on Hollywood Boulevard. You can see the damage in a tweet shared by Jason (@ozborn82):
