Twilight Zone references-
Rod Sterling's opening lines and appearance in the introduction video during the queue-- " Tonight's story on The Twilight Zone is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction. This, as you may recognize is a maintanence service elevator, still in operation (and) waiting for you. We invite you if you dare to step aboard because in tonight's episode, you are the star. And this elevator travels directly to...the Twilight Zone. "

There is a display case in the exit hallway of the Tower Of Terror attraction at Disneyland that contains two items relating to the A Thing about Machines episode. One is a typewriter (with the GET OUT OF HERE FINCHLEY message); the card next to it reads "Almost Writes By Itself". There is also an electric razor; its card reads "Has A Long Cord - Can Follow You Everywhere".
The queue at California Adventure features a reference to the Twilight Zone episode "Little Girl Lost." Chalk marks on the wall are in the same place they were in the episode when trying to find where the portal to find the girl was.

The floor indicator for each of the service elevators shows that the Hollywood Tower Hotel only has 12 floors, but the arrow moves past the 12 indicating a supposed 13th floor. This is another reference to "The After Hours", recalling the experience of the main character who was sent to the 9th floor of the department store that only had eight floors.
One of the shafts at DCA (called Charlie shaft by its cast members) features the mirror scene below the hallway scene while the other two (Alpha and Bravo) feature it in the opposite position. This is because the engineering room (which contains all the computers that operate the attraction) is located behind the mirror scenes for Alpha and Bravo.

At DCA, an envelope with the name Rod Serling can be found in both libraries, near the sliding wall, a reference to the episode "A World of His Own".

Other books in the libraries are in various languages from around the world, including German and Danish.

In Florida's queue just before the library, there is a board with white letters that announce various events scheduled at the hotel. Some of the letters have fallen to the bottom, and if you peer into the case, you can see that they spell out "EVIL TOWER U R DOOMED." These letters have since been removed. Several petitions on the Internet are active in hopes of returning the letters to the directory in the Florida lobby.
