Trivia

Most of the tower footage in the film, both interior and exterior, were shot at the actual Tower of Terror attraction at the Disney's Hollywood Studios. (Then Disney MGM Studios) See more »

Goofs

In the 1939 flashback scene, such as when the Tower gets hit by lightning, what seems to be the Capitol Records Building can be seen. The Capitol Tower did not exist at the time when Sally Shine died until it was completed in 1956. See more »

feel good movie
16 January 2005 | by riley453See all my reviews

I completely disagree there. I thought this movie was a good movie. Good plot, good acting, just enough fear factor for the children. And to top it off, it all happens in the Hollywood Tower Hotel. I take it you have never been to Tower Of Terror in Florida. The Hotel is exactly how the movie describes it. A great feel good movie for you and the kids. Harmless, silly fun. It should be on TV around Halloween more. Good sets, good costumes, good music, and it has enough to keep you entertained the whole way through. Definitely has my vote for a good movie.

A+
