After a lot of speculation and concern, a big talking point on Disney social media spheres lately has come to light–or rather turned off its light–as the “Hollywood Tower Hotel” sign that sits on the facade of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction at Disney California Adventure is being removed.
At press time the sign is currently being dismantled letter by letter and you can watch it all unfolding on the Howard Johnson Mattercam. Work is expected to continue on the exterior of the attraction while it remains in operation as the Tower of Terror through the end of the Disney Holiday season.
As officially confirmed at #SDCC earlier this year, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! will be the re-theme to the existing drop-ride attraction at Disney California Adventure. The new attraction will anchor a broader universe of Super Heroes that will grow over time in Hollywood Land. As part of the new attraction, guests will experience multiple random, unique ride profiles in which the rise and fall of the gantry lift will rock to the beat of music inspired by the film’s popular soundtrack.
Deep inside his fortress-like collection, the mysterious Taneleer Tivan (aka The Collector) is displaying his newest acquisitions, the Guardians of the Galaxy. They are trapped in customized display cases, suspended over a vast abyss. Unbeknownst to their unscrupulous captor, the intrepid Rocket has escaped and is enlisting the Collector’s VIP guests for help. Guests board a gantry lift, which launches them into a chaotic and hilarious adventure as they join Rocket in an attempt to break his fellow Guardians out of captivity.
Guests are expected to be dropping in to Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT! at Disney California Adventure as early as Summer 2017.
The current attraction closes officially on January 2, 2017.

They couldn’t of waited to take the sign down till January?
They need all the time they can get to change the tower. Starting now gives them 9 months.
Should be interesting to see it change slowly
