This week without much warning, Walt Disney World demolished the iconic Tower of Terror billboard. The promotional billboard has been around for decades and entices you to ride the popular attraction. It once sat on World Drive just outside Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Check out the full story HERE.

Yesterday cranes were in place to begin a bit of demolition along Disney Boardwalk. The ESPN Club that first opened in 1996 was a favorite dining location for many guests visiting Disney’s Boardwalk.

Earlier it was announced that it would close, and without much warning, work began yesterday. Be sure to check out photos and see what will take its place HERE.

Nearby at the Yacht Club, guests can take in the gorgeous waters complete with a beautiful lighthouse. Currently, the lighthouse is covered in scaffolding as work is underway.

The lighthouse is located at the Friendship Friendship boat dock. Friendship Boats are a convenient way to travel between Epcot area Resorts and for park hopping between Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Resorts serviced by Friendship Boats are Disney’s BoardwalkDisney’s Beach and Yacht Club, and the Swan and Dolphin Resorts.

Currently, the lighthouse at Disney’s Yacht Club is covered in scaffolding as work is underway.

Thankfully, guests can still access the Friendship Boats even during this refurbishment. We are unsure when work will be completed on the lighthouse at Disney’s Yacht Club.

Donna has always loved Disney even at an early age. When she was younger her family would joke that she lived in "Donna Land". Even now as an adult, she loves to plan and make magical vacations come to life as she and her family travel "Home" to Walt DisneyWorld. Join her as she brings a little faith, trust, and a little bit of pixie dust to Disney planning.


  1. Why weren’t refurbishments done while everything was closed? It would appear that neglecting everything while the parks & resorts were closed, is now creating more work and more money to be spent than if they had kept it up originally.
