Update: We are now hearing that the rides and air conditioning went out due to a power outage but rather an issue with Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ cooling systems.
Are you currently at Walt Disney World? If so, my suggestion is to stay away from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Per online reports, between 5:00 and 5:30 pm, the Park experienced a massive power outage that caused all rides, including the two new ones in Toy Story Land, to be closed. In addition, most other attractions do not have air conditioning. Reports also indicate that buses are not currently dropping any guests off at the Park.
Currently, this is what My Disney Experience is showing for rides and attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios:
While it’s unknown at this time what made the power go off, this is causing many to be inconvenienced, especially those who may have Advanced Dining Reservations at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and those who may not have the Park Hopper option on their tickets. But in true Disney fashion, we are hearing that guests have been offered additional FastPasses and the option to “hop” to other Walt Disney World Parks. We also have heard that additional buses have been sent to the Park if people are leaving.
It is also unknown when Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be re-open but keep following along with us here at Chip & Co. for all the latest.
