Hollywood, 1939. Amid the glitz and the glitter of a bustling, young movie town at the height of its golden age, the Hollywood Tower Hotel was a star in its own right; a beacon for the show business elite. Now, something is about to happen that will change all that! The time is now on an evening very much like the one we have just witnessed! Tonight’s story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize, is a maintenance service elevator still in operation, waiting for YOU! We invite you, IF YOU DARE, to step aboard because in tonight’s episode, YOU ARE THE STAR! And this elevator travels directly to…THE TWILIGHT ZONE!!!

I didn't know the cobweb thing. Also a fact I expected to see but didn't was the fact that the Twilight Zone was more of a last minute addition than initially thought

Hey TMPvids, I think you don't know this but there is another hidden detail about Rod Sterling OUTSIDE the Tower of Terror. Once you leave Fantasmic, you have to go through the one exit passing the ride. If you look up by the glowing windows, you will see a man looking outside. I'm not sure if Disney clarified this, but I have a theory that the man is Rod Sterling.

I loved this ride in DCA and was so upset to hear it was going to be replaced. Then I rode Guardians and wow! What an upgrade!! I am excited to go to WDW in December though and ride TOT again. Funny story....one time I was offered to “extend my stay”, and like a fool I said yes. Messed with my head and stomach, but it was disney magic and I wasn’t going to pass it up.

In the Florida tower of terror one of the props is one that guests can’t see well but Disney put it in anyway. On one the tables it shows that a lovely couple had just finished their meal. The woman’s side is all neat and tidy with a lipstick mark on her napkin. The Man’s side is all messy and he just kinda left stuff everywhere. Idk why, but I just love that prop so much

Couple little secrets for true Twilight Zone fans: In the Library, I believe the one on to the right as you enter, are a couple props from the original Twilight Zone episodes. 1. On the table with the red lamp shade, notice behind and off to the side, you will see a pair of broken circular wire frame glasses..... From the classic episode "Time Enough At Last' starring Burgess Meredith. 2. Up on the shelves, near the ceiling, there is a "Red Devil Fortune Telling Machine" -- this is the one that William Shatner and Patricia Breslin use in the diner while their car is being repaired in the episode "Nick of Time".... Would love for Disney to put more little props like these through the ride.. i.e. a pig mask from "Eye of the Beholder"....."Talky Tina" from "Living Doll"..... the dolls from "Five Characters in Search of an Exit"..... the "Cook Book" from "To Serve Man"..... one of the paintings from "Midnight Sun"..... the old dented can from "Kick the Can".... the hat that the character wore in "Will the real Martian Please Stand Up? ...... There are so many!! Not sure any of these original props still exists, but would be amazing to find them. Or let Disney magic recreate them!! Any favorites you would hide in the ride?

Disney world has nothing on Disneyland. Disney world the staff just seems to care less. When we were going on tot in dw the cast members would walk through backstage doors and show everyone in line the white walls and florescent lights. This happened a lot on both of our trips. Never saw anything like that at Disneyland. Rip Disneyland’s tot

I love your videos TPM vids! I have bin on the ride before and watching this video is making me wanting to go back and see the amazing things you brought up in the video! I have an idea about what you should do for a video on your channel, I think you should talk about the Haunted Mansion Holiday! I want to ride the ride but I am not sure what to pay close atenshion to on the ride? I am a fan of the Nightmare Before Christmas and it is close to Holoween, I hope you can do a video about it and if you don't want to do a video about it, that's ok too! 😊 If you could also talk about the Haunted Mansion, that should be amazing! 😊👍🎃👻

Hey TPM! Loved this video! When I worked at Disney World last fall, I had a friend who worked at Fantasmic! A lot of his coworkers were also trained on Tower of Terror before being moved to Fant. He told me the coolest fun fact that you can actually witness at night by the Tower of Terror! If you are walking along the Fantasmic entrance trail at night and you look at Tower of Terror from the side, you will see a window lit up with the silhouette of a man. This pays tribute to Rod Serling himself, as it is supposed to be him in the window. I believe it stays on all night! It would be on the tower's left side!

I love this time period! I love the Disneyland Resort version a lot! I love this ride! I extremely dislike Disneyland Resort executives for replacing it with the stupid Guardians of the Galaxy. This replacement was an idiot's decision. It doesn't even go with the land it is in (WRONG THEMING) BAD BUSINESS for a "Theme Park"! Now I'm going to have to go to Walt Disney World to go on this ride! I better start saving now since it's so expensive to go. I didn't notice that the ride Hollywood Tower Hotel had a decrease of ride goers.... if I ever find out who's responsible to remove this ride I will write them, and tell them that Walt Disney himself would have never have chosen to do this!

Just another fact. The ride was originally supposed to be 200 feet high, but the Florida building limit is 200. If you go over that you have to put big red lights on your buildings so airplanes don't crash into them. Disney didn't want to ruin the illusion so the ride is actually 199 feet high.

My favorite detail is the fact that you never know what will happen in the drop shaft. I’ve only ridden ToT three times so I haven’t even gotten every sequence, and it’s always fun to never know how far or how many times you’ll drop!

My sister took a tour of ToT recently and a few cool things that she learned were.. 1) there are two chairs in the lobby are that are worth thousands of dollars and the only other two chairs like them can be found in the Met. 2) Once you go through the “fifth dimension” and you get to the end before going up/down, if you look very closely to the left you’ll see an elevator door on its side. Imagineers wanted to give the illusion that not only were you going up and down, but you were also going the wrong way to make you even more disoriented. It’s so dark you can barely see it, but it’s a cool addition from imagineers! I never noticed it before she pointed it out! 3) ToT is 199’ because any structure in Orlando that is over 200’ has to have a blinking red light on the top for planes. Disney didn’t want that to take away from the magic so they keep their rides all below 200’!

Fun Fact:The Dolphin resort is The tallest building in Walt Disney world. The reason why they don't say it is Is because most people read up what is the tallest ride. And also it's not owned by Disney. I Also know because I've seen all of them. It's 257 feet

My favorite element of this attraction has got to be the ambient queue music. They’ve added an echo delay to the 1920s recordings to create a disquieting effect. My favorite song that plays in the loop is the recording of “I Can’t Get Started With You” sung by trumpet player Bunny Berrigan. Thr original recording is fantastic, but the added echo effect makes the song so creepy - it’s incredibly effective!

I got the chance to do a tour of ToT when I did my college program because I won a location raffle. We got to go in the illusion hallway where it got smaller and smaller and even though they're doll sized, the newspapers are all period correct to the story. In fact, our tour guide, one of the long term bell hops, showed us that the only non-period piece is the wine in the hallway that's from the 70's!

I love the show The Twilight Zone and though this isn't a ride I'll go on I hope they'll keep this at the park so there'll be future fans of the show! But I love the details for the ride and I wonder if you can get up to the elevator and then leave? Lol, I wanna photograph the heck out of the interior of the building. Wonderfully done both your video and the ride itself!

Oh yes, what a great video!! This is my favorite ride in the world, really, nothing beats the TOT for me. I loved to know that the abandoned luggage are the ones used on the preshow. Also, in 2014 I stayed at the Roosevelt, in Hollywood, and some of its design and furniture reminded me of TOT. I only think that Disney could provide more merchandise for TOT, as they do with Haunted Mansion. My house, which is already full of TOT stuff, would become a real TOT memorabilia place!! lol. Love your videos!! Big thumbs up!!

We have done the special lobby tour with Bellhops twice now and learned a few fun details. Like how there’s a letter from a Make a Wish guest in the mailboxes behind the check out desk. The two chairs at the table where the couple were sitting were found at a steal at an auction and turned out to be hundreds of years old. The two couches are reproductions though.

I remember the Tower Of Terror alright. The last time was there, was around 2005 and today now I'm 18. I wasn't use to the dropping of the elevator at all as a kid, though I really want to go back to Disney World to ride that thing for the hell of it, if it's still there at the park later on if I ever go back there!

there are 7 elevator shafts in the Tower of Terror the 6 you talked about and one that severs as way was out for anyone who decides not ride at the last minute. I know this because when I was nine I was tall enough to ride and was going to with my dad and older brother but the pre-show scared me and I woust out. I've been terrified of elevators ever sents. I didn't want to get on the chicken elevator because I thought the cast member was trying to trick me on to the ride. nine year-old me was so panicky that she didn't noticed that there were no seats or safety restraints in that elevator.

Absolutely my favorite Disney ride. One rainy day at Disney, when there were no lines, my brother and I rode it 17 times. I didn't know about the frame for the ride in the elevator shaft. I always wondered how they disconnected from one shaft, rolled across the floor and reconnected to the other shaft. Now I know. I'm going tomorrow:) Yipee!
