 Best Post of the Day 5-5-14
Good evening! This day in Disney history, May 5th, 2004: 10 years ago today, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror officially opens in DCA.
tot


According to Disney Parks Blog:

"Inspired by the genius of Rod Serling and the creators of the iconic anthology series “The Twilight Zone,” The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror recalls the disappearance of five unlucky souls on a gloomy Halloween night in 1939 Hollywood “amid the glitz and glamour of a bustling young movie town at the height of its golden age.”

The night before the attraction’s official opening, Disney hosted a red carpet premiere in Hollywood Land to celebrate.

"The opening ceremony was hosted by the Hollywood Tower Hotel bellhop (nicknamed “Buddy”) you may remember from many of the television commercials created for the attraction in 2004. He was joined during the ceremony by Rod Serling’s wife, Carol Serling, who told the audience how thrilled her late husband would be with the attraction. She then invited everyone to “step into a ‘lost episode’ of ‘The Twilight Zone.’”

While similar in concept and theme to the original Tower of Terror in Florida, this version has been redesigned in order to conserve space and money. Reaching 183 feet, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is made of more than 900 tons of steel, 1,600 cubic yards of concrete, 50,000 square feet of exterior plaster and about two miles of HV DC power cableIt features three elevator shafts. Each shaft, in theory, is its own separate ride with its own separate operating system. Doing this made it easier to repair individual areas of the attraction without causing the entire attraction to "go down" (pun intended). Each shaft has 2 vehicles and 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 and 28 seconds long. When all the elevators are in use 1,543 people per hour can ride. Since each vehicle loads and 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 and Tokyo versions of the attraction.

Have you tried any of the other versions? Perhaps in WDW? Which version do you prefer and why?

For YEARS I was so scared of this attraction. Now it is one of my favorites!laughing and screaming at the same time, I walk away with tears of joy and fun. What a fantastic opening to ToT that was!! To see the beginning of the video on a large screen and then the fireworks go off โ€“gave me the chills! Thanks so much, Duchess๐Ÿ˜˜ - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5407.7 #17 7:22PM

Happy Anniversary ToT! Here is another family memory.  While they were building this my daughter was 7.  We wanted her to ride it when it opened, so we called it The Tower of Fun.  She could not wait!  But she rode it only once.   And now we have to bribe her to ride it with us.  Thanks for the hard work you do to put these posts together!!! - AZDisney  610.4 #309 8:24PM
HA! How old is your daughter now? I have to bribe my 8 year old to go on it to! Doesn't always work either! LOL - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:52AM
She is 17.  She also wanted to ride Screaming really bad when she was younger.  Got upset because she was too short.  When she was big enough she was so happy.  She rode it once in her life.  Will not ride it again. - AZDisney  610.4 #309 7:04AM
The bribes don't work for us anymore either. - AZDisney  610.4 #309 7:05AM
Best ride ever!!! - sagarcia4  47.5 #4611 8:28PM
Seems you aren't alone with that thought. :) - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:52AM
Love this ride!!! Best in DCA!! Other than TLM of course ๐Ÿ˜‰my favorite part is that first drop! So scary and fun! I also like to be there when people are riding for the first time- always fun to watch them conquer their fear and end up loving the ride!! - missariel33  2084.8 #65 8:31PM
And thank you for the awesome post!! ๐Ÿ˜˜ - missariel33  2084.8 #65 8:31PM
Good choice! The first drop IS the best! I agree! It is fun to go with first timers! One of these days we'll get MeridaFanon there! LOL Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:53AM
I still have mixed feelings about the ride, and usually only ride with guests. I think it's one of the best themed rides at DCA (at least before RSR), but the elevator ride itself is more something I endure than enjoy. And as always, a good informative post!   - redsoxcarlos  1770.6 #80 8:31PM
::giggles:: what a good sport you are! It is themed well I agree! Thanks SO much! - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:54AM
My neighbor helped work on those commercials for this ride and helped put together the premier that you write about.  Little did we know at the time he had the beginning symptoms of ALS.  A few months after TOT opened he was officially diagnosed with the disease.  Fortunately, he is still alive although in very bad shape.  However, I look at TOT as a symbol of my friend's work and know that after he is gone that ride will continue to have a special meaning for me in my heart. - potatohead25  608.8 #310 8:34PM
๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ฅ - PrincessDuckie  820.6 #204 8:35PM
Aww. That is special.  - MeridaFan  3549.5 #36 11:24PM
that is a super sweet story. Thanks for sharing that with us! ((hugs)) - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:55AM
So about 6/7/8 years ago I was determined to go on. I was scared out of my mind!  Walked  the queue, looking for exits along the way. By the time we got to the room with the TV I was having a full on anxiety attack!  After it was done I was practically jumped into the CM begging him to get me out of there!  I remember having to wait to get escorted out, I'm sure it was just a minute but it seemed forever. I was never so happy to see sunlight. And that was that! My nephew was a CM on TOT for the longest time. Through him I felt so familiar with it, but it was never enough to try to ride it again. Thanks a lot Free Fall! (That ride made me cry!) - PrincessDuckie  820.6 #204 8:35PM
So you've never been on it? - philliprocks  1152.9 #141 9:05PM
Nope! - PrincessDuckie  820.6 #204 9:44PM
oh you poor thing! Sounds like you'll be hangin with MeridaFan holding purses on the bench near the entrance. ;) - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:56AM
I will be in great company, can't complain! - PrincessDuckie  820.6 #204 9:05AM
Great post hon!! I love the show Twilight Zone, so when this first came out I was sooo excited to try ToT, and it it did not disappoint! Nothing like the first time on this great attraction, still love how much fun we still have on it! (I love the one in WDW too, fun to have a different twist to it!) - piratelife4me  962.0 #176 9:02PM
Thanks darlin! I agree! TOT is themed very well! I hear the WDW one is much more interesting of a ride though. - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:58AM
Such a fun attraction...I was a little intimidated at first but loved it right away after riding!  Thanks for all of this great info, I really enjoyed reading and watching!!  I actually do prefer the one at WDW because it is a little more of a ride too, not just the drops.  ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ‘  - MinnieMousewife  884.3 #185 9:07PM
I felt the same way! So glad you liked the post! Thanks so much for always commenting! I've never been to WDW but I've hear that TOT there is a bit longer. Thanks for adding that! - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 6:59AM
Such a cool opening. I started going back and watching the original Twilight Zone series on Netflix the other day. What a great show and great concept for a ride! Thanks as always for the post, Duchess! - chrismis21  544.6 #350 9:34PM
Ohhh! That's a good idea! I didn't know they were on Netflix! Thanks for the heads up! Glad you enjoyed the read! - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 7:00AM
I was one of those who didn't care for DCA much especially before they changed the concept in the park. I rode this and it changed.. I still really come for this attraction. I love watching the show to see what I can spot on here.  - adventurerEnDisneylandia {AED}  966.3 #175 9:48PM
REALLY?! That big of a fan eh? Well bravo Disney for reclaiming the magic for ya! - Duchess_SMK  6041.0 #15 7:01AM

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 week of June 29, 2015

Last year, Independence Week was unusually slow. July 4 was one of the slowest days of the year, if you can believe that! Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week averaged in the 60s, which is not very crowded at all. It is supposed to cool down a little later in the week, which could bring large crowds this weekend. To get a real-time look at how crowded the Parks are, check the MouseWait app for real-time Crowd Index averages and wait times.  - Admin Jun 29, 2015 12:52PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  425.2 #475 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7066 11:53PM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  130.6 #2942 5:08AM

TOP 5 THINGS to do this week at the Disneyland Resort:

1. Watch the new "Paint the Night" parade 8:50 and 11pm nightly.

2. Watch the new "Disneyland Forever" Fireworks show at 9:30pm nightly.

3. See the new "World of Color" 9pm and 10:15pm nightly.

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise. 

5. Look for the Word of the Day displayed outside of the theme park entrances (or in the MouseWait Lounge) and text the word between 7am and 10:59am Pacific to the shortcode listed on the sign. You must be at the Disneyland Resort to enter. If you win, you will be notified around 11am via text or phone. For more info go here
