Today the Disney Parks Blog announced that the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Disney California Adventure will officially close on January 2nd, 2017 to make way for Guardians of the Galaxy Mission: BREAKOUT. However, prior to that date, fans will be able to not only enjoy the original attraction one last time but will also get to experience a unique offering for the Halloween season.
From September 9 through October 31, beginning after twilight each night, guests will be treated to “Late Check-Out” which will take them through the drops of the Tower in complete darkness.
In addition to “Late Check-Out,” guests will find commemorative merchandise as well as special food and beverage items throughout the celebration. You’ll also get the chance to picture yourself “checking out” with a special photo location in front of the Hollywood Tower Hotel marquee, complete with vintage luggage and other nods to the landmark’s story and the glitz and glamor of a bustling young movie town.
Each day during Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, the Hollywood Tower Hotel will host special performances by Buena Vista Street’s own Silver Lake Sisters. Dolly, Dottie and Ethel Bounds, veterans of the vaudeville circuit known professionally as Fiddler, Fifer & Practical (or the Silver Lake Sisters) performed throughout their glittering career at the rooftop lounge of the famous hotel. The sisters went on to open Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Café on Buena Vista Street, where a wall inside the restaurant features photos, posters and memorabilia from their many performances. They will make their return to the Hollywood Tower Hotel to join fans during this farewell tribute.
The Disney Parks Blog promises to offer more ways to celebrate The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror before it checks out of Disney California Adventure park on January 2 so stay tuned.
