Following last year’s four-month-long COVID-19 shutdown, Walt Disney World Resort is slowly but surely returning to normal operations.

Although Guests age 2 and over are still required to comply with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines by wearing face masks indoors, social distancing measures have been removed in almost all areas of the property’s four theme parks, parades are returning this holiday season, and character experiences are resuming — Guests can once again meet Disney Princesses and Mickey Mouse, for example!

Now, it seems that some Guests at Disney’s Hollywood Studios Park were treated to an extra special — and unexpected — character experience when Goofy and Max appeared at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror.
One Twitter user shared fun photos of the father and son duo, writing:

This has not, to date, been a normal spot for any Disney Parks characters to appear since Disney World’s pandemic closure. It is not yet known if Goofy and Max or other fan-favorite characters will make regularly scheduled appearances in this location moving forward.

The official description of the Tower of Terror reads:
Next Stop: The 5th Dimension
Step uneasily inside the infamous Hollywood Tower Hotel and find a dusty lobby frozen in time. Even the subdued hotel staff seems strangely out of another era.
Suddenly a television set springs to life and Rod Serling welcomes you on a journey into the Twilight Zone. He reveals that on a gloomy Halloween night in 1939, some hotel patrons were riding the elevator when a violent storm struck the building… and they were never seen again. The hotel closed down and has stood empty ever since.
Going Up?
Enter the rickety, elevator-style lift, strap yourself in and prepare to discover what lies beyond the darkest corner of your imagination.
Shriek in terror as you’re suddenly propelled up and down the abandoned shaft—unexpectedly dropping and rising—as you hear the sound of cables snapping and metal clanging overhead.
Will you make it back to the real world… or will you become a permanent resident of the Twilight Zone?
Based on the Television Series
This attraction is based on the popular television series which originally aired from 1959 to 1964. Created, hosted and written by Rod Serling, the award-winning show—with its imaginative storylines and unexpected twist endings—was wildly successful.
