Twilight Zone Tower of Terror — Part One

The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is my favorite attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In my opinion, it is one of Disney’s crowning gems and an absolute “must see” on every visit. I’d be surprised if any other attraction has more details packed into it as Tower of Terror. I’ve been on this ride dozens … Continue reading "Twilight Zone Tower of Terror — Part One"

Much of this was due to the fact that many of the buildings either looked like soundstages or office buildings. And most of the other structures and facades were uninspired.
