Many people love to ride Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster which launches guests in a “stretch limo” from 0 to 60 in a matter of seconds.

The legendary rock band Aerosmith is wrapping up a recording session inside their Hollywood music studio. When their manager tells them they’re late for a concert across town, the band invites you to ride along.

Back in December, we shared that Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster would begin a rather lengthy refurbishment. This was set to begin on February 20th, but this had a brief delay.

Disney did not give an exact reopening date. However, the closure is expected to last into the summer of 2023. Many speculated that it could reopen in July 2023. Guests were delighted when this ride reopened this past Friday just in time for the summer crowds.

Yesterday, we were able to catch a ride on Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster and noticed a few significant changes. Be sure to check these out HERE. It appears that this attraction is still operating with a soft opening.

On both Friday and Saturday, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster did not have posted wait times on the My Disney Experience app. This is a bit inconvenient for guests. Thankfully this is now corrected.

Starting today, May 28th, guests can now see the current wait times for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This is good news for guests with the Disability Access Service (DAS) that they may make selections for this attraction.

Unfortunately, Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster is still operating under a soft opening in that it is not an option to select using Disney Genie+. Lightning Lanes are still suspended for this attraction at this time.

Guests are still unable to book a Lightning Lane selection for Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster at this time.

Disney has not yet announced when the official reopening of this attraction will be. At that time guests can then make Disney Genie+ selections.

What do you think of this “soft opening”? When do you think Lightning Lane may return for this attraction? Share your thoughts and share this news with a fellow Disney pal.
