A signed photo of Aerosmith is missing at the exit of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith at Disney’s Hollywood Studios following its refurbishment.
Missing Photo at Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster
Right at the exit following the long hallway from Rock Around the Shop, a photo of the five members of Aerosmith hung before the exit hallway. The photo is autographed by the band — Steven Tyler, Tom Hamilton, Joey Kramer, Joe Perry, and Brad Whitford — and shows them at the World Premiere Gala of Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster at what was then known as Disney-MGM Studios on July 29, 1999.
The photo is normally located on the left side facing the exit, adjacent to the doors outside.
This photo from 2020 shows what is usually in place.
Since the attraction only just soft opened from its months-long refurbishment, it’s certainly possible that this is merely an oversight and not all decor has returned to the ride, with its official reopening likely taking place later this weekend. But considering poor behavior of guests lately, it’s also possible that a bad actor may have tried to steal it off the walls.

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith
Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith is one of Walt Disney World’s most popular thrill rides. When it opened in July 1999, it was an instant favorite among guests.
In this ride, guests will enter the fictional G-Force Records building and join Aerosmith in the studio. Realizing they are about to be late for their huge concert and don’t want to leave us hanging, they generously bring us along with them in a stretch—make that a super stretch—limo.
This is no ordinary limo and is unlike any limo you’ve ever been in before. Each limo features a clever license plate that features puns like “2FAST4U”, “1QKLIMO”, “UGOBABE”, “BUHBYE”, and “H8TRFFC”. The cool thing about each license plate is that it gives you a hint as to which Aerosmith songs you’ll be hearing on your wild race through Los Angeles to get to the show.
- 2FAST4U- “Sweet Emotion” live
- 1QKLIMO- “Nine Lives”
- BUHBYE- “Young Lust”, “F.I.N.E”, “Love in an Elevator(Rollercoaster)”
- UGOBABE- “Love in an Elevator(Rollercoaster) and “Walk This Way”
- H8TRFFC- “Back in the Saddle” and “Dude(Looks Like a Lady)”
The coaster goes from 0 to 57mph in 2.8 seconds and quite literally takes your breath away. Once you hear Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith, start counting down, you better hang on. You are then launched into the dark but there are cool, neon signs everywhere. Riders will experience up to 5Gs of force, which fits perfectly with G-Force Records, and travel through three inversions.
