    Really? Has anyone ever been up in there, or is this like DL's "pip pip" club with exclusive access? I would have never guessed there's people up in there eating. I always figured the entire tower was a complex machine with space only for pullies and cables.

    I'd love to in there.

    The Tip Top Club is part of the storyline and doesn't physically exist.

    In the movie, it was where the unfortunate riders of the elevator were headed on that fateful evening...

    Too bad they didn't actually design it with a real restaurant/club there - the view would have been incredible, Epcot on one side, Studios on the other. Wouldn't it have been an awesome space for a party?

    for real!

    I figured it to be true, only Disney would think of a great idea like that but then again, the entire structure is nothing more than wire and putty so.. they'd of had to use real bricks for such an idea.

    I actually read that Disney had planned on the Hollywood Tower to be a real Hotel for guests to stay at in conjunction with the attraction but scrapped the idea at some point.

    Unfortunately I can't seem to access my favorite ToT site.

    I have also read about a dinner being held there during Halloween I think. Expensive. I'll try to find more on that. Not sure where they held it. I think it might have been held in the gardens.

    Wouldn't that be a creepy yet fun Halloween dinner. A picnic under the canopy of those looming trees with the think fog sweeping in...

    The Tip-Top Club was where Sally Shine (the child star) and her posse were headed to the night of October 31, 1939. The movie version of the ride says that Sally's sister Abigail was supposed to have a birthday party, and thats where they were all headed. Too bad they never made it... >=D

    It would be lovely if they actually opened it up as a club. Same thing with the Sunset Room near the gift shop of the Hotel. That'd make a good restaurant place, too.

    I believe Tower-of-terror.com is down for good. Another site you may like is Towerofterror.org. It's made by my friend (and MGMStudios.org webmaster) Matt. I don't know when it's supposed to open, but it'll be soon.

    Oh no Micah

    That was a great site!

    I will certianly check out your friend's site.

    Do you recall hearing about the dinner at ToT? I have been searching and have only been finding information on a dinner given at DCA's ToT.

    I haven't heard of the dinner at Tower, but I do know sometimes the bellhops have a party on Tower's birthday.
