Walt Disney World has surprised park guests by opening up Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith nearly a month early. 

The Hollywood Studios attraction closed in January 2024 for a period of refurbishment – it’s one of many attractions to receive some extra TLC this year.

A Soft Opening

Disney first stated that Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster would reopen on 27th July before surprising fans with the earlier opening date of 1st July. However, Hollywood Studios guests were delighted when a soft opening took place yesterday (June 30).

Disney has not shared any specifics regarding the attraction’s updates. Although, park guests are reporting that there are no new features/additions to the ride, so it was likely a solely-technical project.

There are currently several major Walt Disney World attractions undergoing maintenance through the summer, including Peter Pan's Flight and Test Track. Check here to see if your favourite attraction is closed.
