While lines can be long, they seem move pretty fast through the interactive queue, but if you just can't wait, be sure to make a FastPass+ reservation.

All the little monsters have to eat and the Sci-Fi Dine-In at Disney's Hollywood Studios has that special after-dark flair. Sit at tables made to look like 1950's vehicles, and order by car-hop, as you watch the big screen play clips full of attacking aliens, marauding mummies, rampaging robots and more!

Enter into a frightening other-world on the The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. This unique thrill ride, inspires terror (or laughter) as you hurl down an abandoned elevator shaft that unexpectedly changes direction and launches back up into the hotel. The attraction's randomized drop sequence is auto-selected, by a computer, before the ride begins giving a new thrill every time. You'll want a FastPass+ reservation for this one, as the line always seems like a creeper.

Every great hotel has a gift shop and the Hollywood Tower is no different. On your way out stop to shop for some delightfully devilish souvenirs, like glassware and plush robes all with a Hollywood Tower Hotel theme. And don't forget, Disney will be filled with seasonal goodies, especially at the Magic Kingdom where Fall is celebrated with a special delight. Shops will offer spooky displays and specialty holiday merchandise, and the confectionaries always have something festive and sweet to eat.
