Behind the Velvet Ropes

Yesterday at Disney California Adventure, a unique opportunity arose.  As I made my way over to the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, I noticed it was down.  I walked up to the front and I noticed they were letting a few people inside.  As I approached the bellhop, she said “Come in”.  Inside they let us explore the lobby and library.  We could really get close to these wonderful details that you would never notice on a normal day.  Besides the up close experience, the bellhops did a great job conducting their tours describing facts and secrets.  For instance, did you know that the couch and two chairs represent the ghostly inhabitants of that fallen elevator?  The following are some photos I took.  Unfortunately, I only had my phone, so the quality of the photos aren’t as nice as I would have hoped.  Enjoy!
