This ride doesn't officially open until this weekend. I can't wait to ride it personally. I love the movies and while I enjoyed TOT, especially Late Check Out, I'm happy to see it change to something more current.

I'm torn about the change. It's good that Disney tries to keep the parks up to date and appealing to newer generations, but it is sad to see classic (or what we think of as classic) rides changing or going away.

That said, on one of our last trips, the lady in front of us in line at TOT was with two 15-16 year olds (at least they looked that age - they were tall!!). They DIDN'T KNOW who Rod Serling was!! And, apparently, had only a passing knowledge of Twilight Zone. It was sad...

Most kids and many adults don't even really know that Walt Disney was a real person!

I've ridden TOT so many times I could recite the whole intro speech! Now it's just an impediment to getting on the ride, so I'm happy to see the new theming.

The DHS version hasn't changed, so you can get your fix of the TOT there.

I'm looking forward to the new Guardians Mission: Breakout attraction. ToT was great, although I have to admit it was even better as Late Checkout, we rode Late Checkout twice last year. And from what I've read, Disney has no intention of changing any of the other Towers to Guardians of the Galaxy, just the one in California so if you need your ToT fix, then Hollywood Studios is the place to be.

Unfortunately for us, we have really soured on the Florida parks but have totally fallen in love with the California parks so it's a good thing we're looking forward to the new ride!

I miss the old DL version. The intense pre-fall sequence in DHS was too much for me this last trip, I had a panic attack when I went last month!

The GotG version relies heavily on screens, and I don't prefer the use of screens in park attractions. That said, I thought it was really fun. GotG has the benefit of all that really fin music, so I left smiling, for sure!
