MAJOR RIDE REOPENS in Disney’s Hollywood Studios!

Have you missed rocking out in Disney’s Hollywood Studios while speeding past neon signs? Then you’re in luck!

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster

Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster closed on February 21st, 2023 for maintenance and refurbishment, with a projected reopening timeframe of “summer” 2023. Occasional closures are necessary for Disney World rides to continue operating, but this one just hurt a little extra. We’ve been waiting so long to take advantage of those backstage passes! But now we’ve got good news.

SURPRISE! Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster has REOPENED in Disney World, and our hearts are pumping faster just thinking about it.

While we were in the area earlier on May 26th, 2023, we saw the queue outside was already set up with ropes — a good sign that a reopening could be on its way. During our time in the park, the ride unfortunately did not reopen but that wasn’t the end of the story.

Later in the day, our friends at DisneyFoodBlog had a reader share some exciting news with them — the ride finally REOPENED! A big thanks to DisneyFoodBlog for sharing the news with us.

Note that the ride still doesn’t actively list hours on the Disney World website…


…and it did NOT list any wait times on the My Disney Experience app at the time of the reported reopening.


Since this was a sudden reopening, we do suggest that you carefully check the My Disney Experience app and Disney World website for any updates. You’ll also want to visit the front of the ride physically to speak with Cast Members there. While it may not list hours on the app, it’s possible it will be open as part of a soft opening so you’ll want to stop by and check.

Time to Rock?

In the past, we have reached out to YOU, our wonderful readers, to see what bands should replace Aerosmith on this ride (were that change to ever be made in the future) and you all had some THOUGHTS.

AC/DC, anyone? What about a little coaster action with music from Queen? For now, it seems Aerosmith will continue to play tunes in the ride, but you can click here to see what our readers have said about potential replacement bands and chime in with your thoughts!
