The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is a popular ride located at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort. The attraction takes Guests into the 5th dimension after hopping aboard a maintenance service elevator, making for a thrilling experience.
But did you know that this ride is filled with secrets and hidden treasures — and no, we aren’t referring to all the nods to the television show, The Twilight Zone, hidden throughout.
According to The Odyssey Online, there is a jar of pickled sausages inside Tower of Terror! The Disney Imagineers reportedly played pranks on one another, and one of these tricks included a jar of pickled sausages:
Some of the Imagineers stationed in The Tower of Terror started playing pranks on each other by hiding and jumping out at each other while holding a jar of pickled sausages. One day, someone left it behind and it got glued down with the rest of the props. Now it is part of the ride. It is behind the photo pickup area.
So the next time you are “dropping” in for a visit, see if you can spot the jar of pickled sausages hidden behind the photo pickup area!

In case you aren’t familiar, the official description of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios reads:
Step uneasily inside the infamous Hollywood Tower Hotel and find a dusty lobby frozen in time. Even the subdued hotel staff seems strangely out of another era.
Suddenly a television set springs to life and Rod Serling welcomes you on a journey into the Twilight Zone. He reveals that on a gloomy Halloween night in 1939, some hotel patrons were riding the elevator when a violent storm struck the building… and they were never seen again. The hotel closed down and has stood empty ever since.
Enter the rickety, elevator-style lift, strap yourself in and prepare to discover what lies beyond the darkest corner of your imagination.
Shriek in terror as you’re suddenly propelled up and down the abandoned shaft—unexpectedly dropping and rising—as you hear the sound of cables snapping and metal clanging overhead.
Will you make it back to the real world… or will you become a permanent resident of the Twilight Zone?
