Any plans to DROP by the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror in Disney’s Hollywood Studios?
Well, even if you don’t plan to take on the haunted elevator itself, you may find it worthwhile to stop by one of these days anyway. That is, if the rumors are true that a themed bar may be added to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction, according to wdwnt.com.
Said to be in the works for a location planned at the attraction’s exit (before entering the merchandise shop), the spot would offer some much-needed oomph in regards to food and beverage offerings in Hollywood Studios, which has recently lost several eateries (including one full Counter Service location with Studio Catering Co., and one bar with High Octane Refreshments) in conjunction with the closure of the Streets of America section of the park to make way for the future Toy Story and Star Wars Lands.
It would also bring more offerings to the area of the park where the headliner attractions are housed, especially in light of the attraction closures that have taken place throughout the park, such as the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, the Studio Backlot Tour, and the American Idol Experience.
Is this development likely? Why not? Disney’s not known for putting dining establishments into their attractions, but it sure would be fun if you ask me. And the area proposed for the bar at ToT is a perfect location.
We did a story previously on the fictional Sunset Room Restaurant in the lobby of the Tower of Terror, and of course there’s the mentioned Tip Top Lounge in the attraction’s backstory.
This area would be ideal for a watering hole, though I’d suggest a separate entrance so that patrons who aren’t interested in waiting in line to ride the ride are able to enter without wandering through the gift shop first.
