Disney's Hollywood Studio's Tower of Terror

    Cheryl from OH Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Does the Tower of Terror still have a guest book to sign for the first guest in line for that ride each day? If so, how early should we arrive to try to get this spot? Staying at AKL and visiting this park on 2/12/23.

    A warm welcome back to planDisney, Cheryl. 

    I’m glad you dropped in with your question about one of my family’s favorite attractions at Walt Disney World Resort! There is nothing quite like walking up to the Hollywood Tower Hotel and being greeted by some of the most in-character Cast Members ever. It totally sets the stage for all the heart-dropping that's about to occur as you board The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror ™.

    Now, Cheryl, I have never seen anyone actually sign a guest book, but I have seen a guest book among the dusty artifacts in the lobby. So, I can neither confirm nor deny that you will have an opportunity to sign in before you potentially become a permanent resident of the Twilight Zone, but I can help you figure out how to be among the first passengers on the most uncommon elevator.

    Since you are staying at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, you can take advantage of 30-minute Early Entry into Walt Disney World theme parks every day (valid theme park admission, park reservation and Resort ID are required), which is a great perk. According to the Hours & Events Calendar for February 12, 2023, Disney’s Hollywood Studios opens for Early Entry at 7:30 a.m. (park hours are subject to change). 

    Cheryl, this is the important part. I suggest you be at Disney’s Hollywood Studios before the park opens as there is often a large gathering of Guests like you who are hoping to ride their favorite attractions before the park opens to other Guests. Now, once the park opens remember to walk safely as you take that right turn up Sunset Boulevard toward the beacon for the show business elite. I’m wishing you luck!

    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. 

    Cheryl, come back to see us here at planDisney if you have any other questions!

    I hope your vacation is beyond the fifth dimension,
