In the late afternoon during my little 4-parks-in-one-day adventure (achievement unlocked), I found myself waiting for Hollywood Studios to wind down so that I could tackle the Tower of Terror with minimal crowding. At 7PM, when the park was about to close, I ran inside the attraction to begin taking some lobby shots.
After a couple of snaps, one of the coolest cast members ever asked me if I wanted to get a little closer to some of the elements and allowed me to plant the tripod outside of the ropes. We got to talking and he offered me one of the most awesome opportunities: to shoot the Library for as long as I wanted with the lights on, doors open.
How do you say 'no' to that? I ran into through the Library on the right (the southern wing...?), tripping on my feet with joy, and started taking photo after photo with this ridiculous grin on my face. If there was a time-lapse video of me doing this, it would look like I was surveying each inch of the room for money.
After conversing with two other cast members and having a lot of ToT knowledge being laid upon me, I was given the chance to ride solo and "close out" the attraction. Done!
The whole cast was waiting by the photo review when I got off and were pretty pumped to see what I had gotten myself into. What next? I took more photos.
Basically: THANK YOU TO THE CAST OF TOWER OF TERROR FOR BEING AWESOME.
Now, enjoy this photo that I think is super rad, follow me on Twitter because I have no friends, and have an awesome day!
