in Walt Disney World

The Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is a popular ride that gives Guests a thrilling, yet unique, experience. If you have never experienced the ride, it drops Guests directly into the Twilight Zone every few seconds, but not before Guests walk through an abandoned hotel lobby, setting the mood and transporting Guests into the storyline.

When Guests walk through the queue, they must go through the abandoned hotel lobby, filled with dust and spiderwebs. Once through the lobby, Guests will enter a room, which is where the pre-show takes place. This room is filled with antiques and even props from The Twilight Zone television show.

Well, on a recent trip, Guests noticed that one of the antiques within this room had a terrifyingly odd addition.

Paging Mr. Morrow shared a video to TikTok showing that the statue in the Tower of Terror pre-show room received a terrifying new addition — googly eyes! Now, normally googly eyes are fun and light-hearted but when adding them to the Tower of Terror statue, it just makes it more terrifying!

Se the video here:

We do not know if these were placed there on purpose by a Cast Member or if someone else placed them there when no one was watching. If that is the case, and a Cast Member did not place the eyes on the statue, we want to remind Guests that vandalism is prohibited.

In case you aren’t familiar, the official description of 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?
