The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is our choice for #Day21 of our #DisneyWorldCountdown!

Hello everyone, and welcome to #Day21 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  Today we are taking a look at the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, which, I will admit, is a ride that I have absolutely no love for!  There are some things that I think are really great about this ride, but the part I dread the most — the “elevator ride” — is something that I truly do not look forward to, and I rarely take in this attraction anymore!

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is not my favorite ride!

The backstory behind the Tower of Terror is, in my opinion, one of the very best at Disney.  From incorporating Rod Serling and the Twilight Zone into the tale, and the way that they have decorated the queue line, it all builds up to a great backstory.

We met new friends who were just married when we were in line to ride it back in 2008!

The first time we rode this attraction, way back in 2008, we met this happy couple who had just been married!  We congratulated them, they wished Sophie a Happy Birthday, and we chatted while we were in line.  Our time in line turned into a pen-pal writing relationship between Sophie and them, and we are friends to this day!  Fortunately, they did not become ghosts, like our next picture suggests…

The ghosts stare at you as you approach the elevator to your “room”!

The Imagineers do a great job of building up the tension as you approach the elevator.  You’ve got the Twilight Zone story, and the ghosts, and the darkness when you don’t know what is going on, and then, a terrifying drop!

I will admit, though, that the building is great, especially at night!

I will admit, though, that the building is neat when you look at it at night!  However, this YouTube video may just dissuade me from ever riding the attraction again…

What about you, though? Do you like the attraction, or are you like me and can’t stand the “elevator ride”? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by today!
