    Hi Shannon! Thanks for your great answer about O2 on Disney Cruises! Here's another one. My 02-bound hubby can't ride Tower of Terror but my daughter and I won't miss it! Any recommendations for a great place for him to chill while we scream?

    A warm welcome back, Kerri,

    I hope your family gets to enjoy a Disney Cruise Line vacation soon! I’m glad you dropped back by planDisney with your question about one of my family’s favorite attractions at Walt Disney World Resort! One of the best parts of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™ is the amazing Cast Members who really set the stage for all the heart-dropping fun long before you board the elevator. So, I hope your husband will have a chance to interact with them at the queue entrance before he heads off for some fun of his own.

    Now, depending on your wait time, your husband might want to be our Guest at the Beauty & The Beast Live on Stage show, which is just around the corner from the Hollywood Tower Hotel. The show is 30 minutes long and the theatre is rather large, so he shouldn’t have trouble finding a seat.  Another one of my favorite options along Sunset Boulevard is grabbing an ice cream sundae at Hollywood Scoops. Or if a draft beer sounds more his style, Fairfax Fair next door has some amazing beers from Florida to try. There is plenty of shaded seating in this area and lots of great people-watching. And as a bonus, he can watch the doors of the most uncommon elevator at the Hollywood Tower Hotel open from 13 stories up and actually hear you and your daughter scream!

    If you haven’t already made advanced dining reservations for your visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, I highly recommend 50’s Prime Time Café.  Order the Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Shake and Grandpa Jean’s Chicken Pot Pie and put your elbows on the table, if you dare. 

    Kerri, thanks again for coming to see me here at planDisney. Pretty soon you might become a permanent resident of the Hollywood Tower Hotel, and you are always welcome here!

    I hope your vacation is beyond the fifth dimension,

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
