Happy Halloween, Disney Parks Blog! On a stormy Halloween night in 1939, a bellhop and four others stepped aboard a Hollywood Tower Hotel elevator and into the fifth dimension. To mark the anniversary of their disappearance, Disneyland Resort cast member Bryan Higashi will tell you about his role hosting guests at The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, whenever they drop in!

Read on for more from our “Every Role a Starring Role” series:


  • Do you know who the actors are in the video? I heard the little girl is Kirsten Dunst.

  • The Tower of Terror is overall the best ride in California Adventure! I love how the cast members fully take on the charater of the bellhop. We visited California Adventure last week and were not having a very good experience until we went to the Tower of Terror and the cast member we had in the room with the video was just awesome! His name was David and he was so in character and just knew how to keep the guests entertained, he made our night a lot more enjoyable!

  • If I get to be a cast member at Disneyland someday, I want to be a Twilight Zone Tower of Terror bellhop. They are such a vital part of the experience. I’ll never forget what an impression the bellhops left on me the first time I went on the Tower of Terror: they were creepy and funny at the same time!
