 Best Post of the Day 5-5-13
Good morning! This day in Disney history, May 5th, 2004. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror has its official grand opening at DCA. While similar in concept & theme to the original attraction in Florida, this version has been redesigned in order to conserve space & money. The attraction features three elevator shafts. Each shaft, in theory, is its own separate ride w/ its own separate operating system. Doing this made it easier to repair individual areas of the attraction w/out causing the entire attraction to "go down" (pun intended). Each shaft has 2 vehicles & 2 loading levels. It is designed so that the lower vehicle can be in profile while the upper vehicle is loading, making the attraction much more efficient. The ride is about 2 minutes & 28 seconds long. When all the elevators are in use 1,543 people per hour can ride. Since each vehicle loads & unloads from the same point, it also saves space. Since this system works so much more efficiently, it is the system used in both the Paris & Tokyo versions of the attraction. To watch a short clip of the opening day ceremony: http://is.gd/r2jMX8 Have you tried any of the other versions? Perhaps in WDW? Which version do you prefer & why?

😱😱 I have yet to ride this attraction. Very interesting about the operation and how this attraction is so efficient!! Thank you SMK! I always learn new and cool things from your Disney History!! You're awesome!! You still haven't gotten me on TOTπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MickeyFan  1205.7 #153 7:43AM
MyPark let's all go together at the reunion! We can do a ride takeover!πŸ˜ƒyou will looove it, and we could all support you! - piratelife4me  1069.3 #180 7:46AM
This ride is very intimidating and not for everyone.I prefer to not force anyone who does not want to or ready to ride this ride although my mini who turned five today has gone on it since he's 42" loves it => - pikarich  5900.7 #22 9:04AM
I would be honored if you would join me on this attraction someday sir! No pressure, but someday! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 9:12AM
Mypark still hasn't gotten on MonsterInc ride either!!! => - pikarich  5900.7 #22 9:17AM
Actually pikarich he has! ☺;) - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:23PM
I'm very sorry MyPark and pikarich, I certainly didn't mean what I said to sound like I was trying to force anyone, it was only to show support if you wanted to ride. - piratelife4me  1069.3 #180 7:35PM
Did you know that the actual Tower is one of the tallest buildings in Anaheim? Also, because of its height, it would have required a light on top for the pilots flying over if the height went over 200 feet. So, Disney made it 199 feet tall, thus not requiring a red light and to keep the tower in "show". - BaseballMickey  7888.0 #11 9:21AM
Thanks so much for adding that info! I had heard that but I had forgotten! 😘 - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:27PM
I like the WDW better. You take a short ride Dow a track with Twilight Zone type effects before you come to a stop and then go through the rest of the story. It makes the ride a teeny bit longer and adds another neat element to it. Either way, they are both awesome! - chelebee  304.8 #915 7:56AM
I agree with you - DebbyMouse7531  542.2 #17 8:04AM
Hear it's very impressive, but I habent had the pleasure of enjoying it myself. ::sigh:: someday! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:24PM
I hate to admit it, but the WDW one is better. My first time ever riding ToT was there and I loved how you actually moved through the ride to hear the story. It made the drops really sneak up on you. I remember I was 10 (1997 ish) and it scared the living crap outta me. As soon as we got off we ran around and got in line again! It was really rainy the day we were there and so we rode it 4 times in a row with no line! I will always compare my ToT experience to the greatness of that day. I was so excited to hear it was coming to DL. I still love the ride, I look forward to it most when entering DCA. But nothing compares to WDW on this one! Thanks for sharing the info Duchess I enjoyed this blast from the past! - evilqueensmistress  285.1 #1051 8:26AM
Thank YOU for sharing all that with us! 4xs! RAD! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:26PM
Great info! I have not had the opportunity to ride this anywhere else except at DCA, but those are the best 2 minutes & 28 seconds of terror and giggles all at the same time :) - DisLUVney  636.3 #328 7:39AM
😊 I feel the same way! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:27PM
Awesome backstory! I love the more efficient redesign! - GibsonGirl87  462.3 #488 7:40AM
Imagineers =genius! πŸ‘πŸ‘ - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:29PM
Thanks hon! Very interesting. I've only been on two, DCA and WDW, both are great! I loved the idea of this attraction, and still think it is so fun. It's a must for my family every time!πŸ˜ƒ(thanks for the post and enjoy your sabbath!) - piratelife4me  1069.3 #180 7:43AM
Well hello sweetheart! Thank you so much! Wish my minis were brave enough to enjoy it. But I'm ok with them staying little forever. Lol - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:31PM
The version in WDW is odd! I fell in love with DL's version, and then when I rode it in Florida, my family and I just kept looking at each other saying "Whaaa?". Once you board the elevator and the doors close, the elevator detaches and moves along a track taking you through the basement/boiler room...then reattaches to the elevator shaft and the ride begins. - London-In-Wonderland  451.0 #504 7:44AM
Thanks for sharing that info!! I could imagine that whole thing in my head! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:32PM
I agree. I like the dca version better, I feel like it has a more cohesive theming, more retro, less weird. - bluefairy  643.8 #323 9:04PM
I love your posts! This one is so fun! The first time we rode this in 2004, it scared the living pee-wad-ins outta me and my then bf now husband. Serious heart checker!! I love the ride! He of course hates it! - PixiePirateMaid  355.3 #680 7:44AM
youre so sweet! Thank you! "Pee-wad-ins" that made me giggle! Does he still go on it with you?! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:34PM
9 years of not riding it! Here's to 9 more ;0) - tuesday737  1291.5 #140 7:58AM
Teehee! It's not for everyone! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:34PM
no. just no ;) - OhanaPhoto  6397.2 #20 8:06AM
lol cmon its a fun ride:) - Hendizl  2862.2 #49 8:11AM
::makes chicken noises:: πŸ˜‚πŸ˜˜ - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:34PM
I have been on the DCA and WDW versions. I felt that the WDW version was weird since you do move on a track and the view you see is of the building rockin roller coaster is in. DCA's version has a better view of the parks making you realize you really are up high. - McQueenGal  268.6 #1220 8:06AM
I think it's neat you were able to experience both! Thanks for sharing with us! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:35PM
I have not been to any other versions yet. But I know where I'll be going today if we make it to the parks. Thank you miss. - GrumpyPirateDad  1938.8 #92 8:18AM
SA-WEEEET! I hope you enjoy! Jelly!!! I'd love to be there today! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:36PM
This is such great info on the redesign! Its only 9 years old, it seems like it has been here so much longer! - adisneyfamily  1004.0 #194 8:23AM
Thanks! I agree! I don't remember the park without it! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:37PM
Great info, thank you! - BombFrogFormerCM  1028.5 #188 8:28AM
Thank YOU sir! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:37PM
Thanks for the great info as always. It kills me to watch little kids walk off this ride laughing and I'm always scared to death! I wish I could keep my eyes open on it just once...I'm a chicken! - MinnieMyLove  218.0 #1807 8:44AM
Awe! At least you try! So many won't even do that! ::pats you on the back:: - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:38PM
One if my favorite rides!! - JollyRoger5  3949.1 #39 8:50AM
and yet you won't ride with me anymore - pikarich  5900.7 #22 9:06AM
Me too! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:38PM
Just watched and thanks for posting it I also watched the making of tower of terror hosted by Kurt kameron from growing pains ad newsies - alphathedog4  154.3 #2698 8:57AM
Oh! I'll have to look for that! Thanks! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:39PM
Thanks Duchess you said it.our load version is better. Better setting on the twilight zone , Disney was playing with ideas for this attraction including having it be Mel brooks Frankenstein. The main difference between our tot and wdw is the elevator comes out of it's elevator shaft down a hallway then start its drop sequence but nobody beats our loading and shaft sequence , great job ca Disney version. Its also just shy of a few feet from having an airplane light on its roof but they decided to build it just under to keep the theme , imagine an annoying red flashing light on the top. They also used tot to install time lapse camera to record the building of carsland from the old pumba parking. This ride is fun and FOR THE RECORD I HAVE RIDDEN THIS RIDE FOUR TIMES IN FOUR YEARS,I MAY NOT LIKE AS MUCH BUT IT DOES NOT MEAN I HAVE NEVER RIDDEN IT!!!I just need to clear that up . I typically choose to ride this ride once a year. thank you for this awesome history lesson. - pikarich  5900.7 #22 9:01AM
This reads like you should be having a TOT meet up today/night. What better day than its anniversary for your yearly ride. - GrumpyPirateDad  1938.8 #92 9:20AM
^^^^ahahah your too funny - pikarich  5900.7 #22 9:30AM
Nice a year?! Awe! You need to update that! ASAP! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:39PM
One of our family's favorite rides! My 5 year old absolutely loves it. Thanks for the info - fab5  150.0 #2768 9:02AM
What a brave 5 year old you have!!! My 7 year old doesn't care for it! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:41PM
One of my faves! I've been on WDW's version as well and actually like theirs more because of the movement through the floor before getting to the elevator shaft. - LBChica  2543.8 #61 9:25AM
Hear it's a whole different experience. - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:40PM
Luv this ride! !!! As always duchess-THANKS! Ur awesome :) - missariel33  2115.6 #76 9:26AM
You're so welcome! And YOU'RE awesome!!! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:41PM
Love the TOT at night! Always a must do. I still scream my brains out even though I've been on it multiple times :) - Melli_mo  506.1 #438 9:27AM
Oooh so that's YOU that always hurts my ears! ::giggles:: - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:42PM
Such a great post! True confession - I have never been on this ride. No one in my family has ever wanted to go and I've always been too reluctant to go alone. - cmogo  74.4 #4135 11:38AM
Thanks! Awe!!you should try it with a big group of MWers!! - Duchess_SMK  6491.2 #19 2:44PM
Thank you for another great post ! I have been fortunate enough to ride both WDW and DCA versions . I like them both. I personally enjoy the queue part of TOT better than the actual elevator part. I like the creepiness factor and all there is to see and the back story. I would be content to walk through and then leave the line if I could :) lol - eviljules  1445.1 #122 11:59AM
My wife has been on both. Upon questioning her on which is better, her response was WDW. The reason, "just because it's better". :) - RapunzelledColey  140.0 #2940 1:07PM
LoL! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜„πŸ˜„"Just Because" Love it!!! - WaltSentMe  330.6 #773 1:26PM
I love this attraction. Can't wait until the little guy feels comfortable enough to go back on. This always makes me laugh. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1851.5 #98 2:07PM
Thanks for the info! I love them both but prefer the WDW version. Awesome attraction. - CheshireCam  200.2 #2038 2:10PM
Thank you for the fun info! You are a font of wonderful Disney information!!! - Boundin  778.1 #251 3:13PM
I love the one in WDW... hooked from the start.. couldn't wait for the one in DCA to open and now I ride or every chance I get..!!! XXO - carminaire  843.8 #223 5:01PM
Cool information. My son loves this ride. My wife hates it, so it is a father/son ride. - adventuremickey  285.0 #1053 5:49PM
I still remember the first ride on this. When the first drop occurred, I actually let out a little scream. I never scream on rides and this one caught me! One of my favorite ride pics ever is from this one too. My SIL decided to be brave and ride it. We randomly got the front row. At picture time I'm posing and my SIL looks like a deer in the headlights- eyes wide, mouth open in a scream. It's great! - LilSterner  5732.5 #23 6:00PM
Duchess thank you. Great info as always. I have been on both WDW & DCA and find the line area a different layout decor , the wait time seems longer in WDW but the ride itself seems identical to me. I think TOT is a brilliant ride in that no matter how many times you go on it you still get that same " why do I do this " feeling right before the drop. It's great - polo33  80.3 #4021 6:14PM
I love your informative post on TOTπŸ˜ƒ - E-Ticket  1472.4 #119 7:37PM
I do prefer WDW b/c of the movement through the floor before the drops...but I also love the DCA version! Such a fun attraction. Thanks for this great info Duchess!! 😊 - MinnieMousewife  916.3 #206 8:38PM
You always post such nice and really interesting things. Thank you very much! - april_december  299.7 #952 9:43PM
I remember watching Howie Mandel on Regis and Kelly do a test run of the ride before it was open to the public. The camera was on him the whole ride. He was wearing a Goofy dreadlocks hat so every time he dropped the dreadlocks were straight up. So funny.... my daughter and husband have said they liked WDW version better. - HalfCaff  582.8 #361 11:14PM
I dislike rides with free fall, but I have ridden both ToTs and I certainly prefer WDW's! You move out of the elevator shaft and go through the hotel in WDW before moving into the drop shaft! It's such a cool and unexpected experience the first time you ride! - DisneyDreamer93  16.7 #8342 11:15PM
I have rode the one in WDW. I would agree that DCA is much more efficient and gets people in and out quicker. WDW is more like a "ride" where you travel through it for a bit before the actual drop. - mrstrmiller  522.1 #420 7:12AM
Thank you for the link and fun history. You find the best videos - Tealtownfan  1152.2 #162 7:41AM
I love this ride... - Apples2  637.9 #327 7:56AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the month of May 2016
The last few weeks have been relatively quiet, but we will see crowds rise as we get to the end of May, especially toward the end of the month when Grad Nite begins. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), crowds averaged in the high 70s (approx 70% capacity), then the Crowd Index rose to the 80s toward the end of the month. Remember, we've seen larger crowds ever since the 60th Celebration began, so keep that in mind when looking at historical Crowd Index data. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin May 9, 2016 5:42PM

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that theΒ android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community.Β I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait.Β Thanks for reading Β and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.0 #127415 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6372.5 #21 8:10PM
