An arriving drive into The Walt Disney World Resort includes a series of iconic landmarks, beginning with the legendary archway that marks the official entrance onto Disney World Property. One of those landmarks has been a Tower of Terror billboard on World Drive, and it has come to our attention that it will soon be removed.
The news was shared on Twitter by Disney World and Theme Park reporter Scott Gustin (@ScottGustin), who said,
Yes – the iconic Twilight Zone Tower of Terror billboard is coming down. Disney has been removing similar signs around property – and this is the latest casualty. The attraction will remain open.
