Rather than close the entire attraction, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be undergoing a refurbishment that will reduce the ride’s capacity over the next few months.
Starting this spring and running through summer 2019, the planned refurbishment will carried out in phases while the attraction remains open. A number of ride shafts may be inoperable at any time, leading to longer wait times during this period. Disney will also be reducing the amount of FastPass+ reservations available.
We expect this work will be an effort to get the attraction working correctly and fix many broken effects before the crowds descend upon the park for the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge later this year.
