    Disney Tidbit for Today

    Rod Serling's introduction to the Tower of Terror attraction (as viewed in the library) was taken in part from a Twilight Zone episode called "It's A Good Life." Serling began the episode with the words, "Tonight's story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction." Imagineers completed the introduction with new dialogue performed by a sound-alike actor.

    Walt Disney was so passionate about trains ... that he built a 1/8-scale railroad running through his backyard and the rose gardens of his California home!
