Is Aerosmith's Rock'n'Roller Coaster Done at Walt Disney World?
With the New Year upon us, we know of a number of new rides and attractions coming our way at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.
But there are also several that are closing for good or that have a future that's simply up in air with more questions than answers.
Permanently closing or already closed at Disney's Hollywood Studios:
At Disney's Animal Kingdom Park:
At Disney's Magic Kingdom Park:
Most of the talk now is focused on Rock'n'Roller Coaster, which is closing for a long refurbishment on February 20, 2023. Disney has said it will be reopening in the summer of 2023.
With the Aerosmith agreement now expired (in 2022), will the refurbishment also become a full ride re-theming of Rock'n'Roller Coaster?
At Disneyland Paris the ride was re-themed into an Avengers ride. But this probably wouldn't be a Marvel re-theme due to agreements in place between Universal Studios Florida and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
So what would be a likely re-theme? Keep it as Rock'n'Roller Coaster and just update the band to a younger and newer artist or group? Or would they do what they have done in so many other cases at Walt Disney World and re-theme the ride into a Disney character property?
