    anyone else want a little more twilight zone love?

    i love the twilight zone and since disney owns the rights to use it...why not use it even more? I love the old black and white tv show and love the twilight zone of terror not because of the big drop (i actually dread it a bit), but because of the cool twilight zone effects. Even though its not a real episode I still feel like Im in the episode. Why can't they do more of it at dca? Maybe one based on a particular story liine or all of them...like ur going in the tv? The twilight zone was not about things popping out and scaring you but good story...I think it wouldn't be too scary and would be a good fit...a lil more like the haunted mansion and a movie ride in one...any thoughts?

    They should add the killer Doll "talking Tina" into Small World.

    A Twilight Zone "land" would've been nice, maybe like a small show building with a gift shop and two or three rides. One of them would be ToT, another would be a dark ride, and maybe a show or something. Unfortunately it's too late for that.

    It really is a good property. At least they did it justice with ToT.

    Re: anyone else want a little more twilight zone love?

    I like the old Twilight Zone shows and remember seeing them when they were new! I am puzzled, however, by Disney's decision to connect ToT with Twilight Zone.

    Rod Serling's show has nothing to do with Disney. The rights had to cost a bundle. (Disney owns ABC. Why pay money to CBS?) The Imagineers surely could have come up with a backstory for the ride that didn't involve Twilight Zone. There's no cross-pollination synergy to be had here. I'm guessing that most people under 30 have little or no connection with the old TV show.

    It's a cute and effective back story. I don't dispute that. BUT: why is Disney putting so much effort into connecting with TV shows and films that aren't even Disney?

    I don't think Disney "owns" the rights- every time they use the words "The Twilight Zone" they have to put an asterisk saying that its a registered trademark of CBS. Not to mention the necessary approvals and this and that...

    Don't get me wrong; I love the Twilight Zone. But I think one ride is enough, and the Tower of Terror is a good ride.

    Forest Whitaker animatronic would be pretty scary.

    I think they should just put a nice Twilight Zone pinball in the gift shop. It would fit perfectly.

    They didn't own ABC when they acquired the rights. Also, it was just a rights issue for TOT, and that only at WDW and DL. The new versions in Paris and Tokyo have no Twilight Zone references at all.

    I love the theming and synergy. I only wish the DCA version was as great as the MGM version.
