Yesterday we reported that the Tower of Terror 3-D billboard, a staple of the Walt Disney World experience, was to be removed. Yesterday there were images with heavy equipment and vehicles around the sign. Overnight it was taken down and as of this morning it is no longer there.

“And just like that, the iconic Tower of Terror billboard at Walt Disney World has been removed. 😢 It appears that crews got to work overnight, leaving just a few structural elements and piles of dirt. 👀

Here is what it looked like before it was removed:

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror attraction is not currently being changed and is open. It was just the decades old billboard that has been removed. Hopefully it isn’t a bad omen of things to come for the popular Disney’s Hollywood Studios attraction.

The general consensus is that many will miss it and they feel it’s another example of how the Walt Disney Company is removing iconic elements of the park. While others seem to think it was an eye sore and it’s an improvement now that it’s gone.

I do have to wonder if the sign will end up like the Maelstrom polar bear, as part of a behind the scenes exhibit, or if it will end up in the private collection of a wealthy Disney fan.
