Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia - Tower of Terror
Did you know that there is a jar of pickled pigs' feet in the Tower of Terror? Okay, okay, I may be mis-remembering the pigs' feet part, but it's a pickled jar of something gross! Apparently, the Imagineers had an inside joke involving this jar of "delicacies", and like a White Elephant gift at Christmastime, they passed it around to one another, always trying to stick someone else with the jar. It was during the time when the Tower was being staged and themed, so props were being placed everywhere.
The unfortunate Imagineer who was then currently stuck with this jar ended up setting it on a table behind the Photo Viewing Station that is in front of you when you exit the ride elevators. When he went back to retrieve it, he found to his dismay that the workmen had glued it into place, thinking it was one of the props!
Well, needless to say, it was now incorporated into the decor permanently ... so they themed it appropriately, and there it stands to this day. If you pop your head through the "window" under the picture viewing screens and look off to the left, you'll see a large, dusty jar in the corner. And now, you will know the story behind that dusty-looking jar.
This tidbit is something I picked up at a "Dine with an Imagineer" experience at the Brown Derby in Hollywood Studios.
