A Physical Trip to the Twilight Zone

At Disney California Adventure, guests can experience a physical trip to Rod Serling's famed Twilight Zone. While the attraction itself is not based on an actual episode of the famed series, there are numerous nods to the show hidden throughout the attraction.

For example, were you to be escorted to the right side library doors, you might notice that they feature the number 22 above one of the doors. Just a random number? Not at Disney!

The number 22 actually refers to the Twilight Zone episode Twenty Two. An actress, hospitalized with a case of the nerves, keeps having the same nightmare over and over again. A forbidding nurse beckons the actress to Room 22, which in the nightmare is the hospital morgue, insisting that there's room for one more. This being the Twilight Zone, the nightmare is actually quite prophetic, but we won't spoil the surprise.
