Bricks in a wall

This week's entry to this column comes from yet another secret-rich attraction that Imagineers clearly spent a lot of time with. The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is filled with Twilight Zone references and this week we look to the boiler room of the attraction. After you exit the Library (the place where you watch the preshow video), you'll find along the wall a set of bricks with some chalk around it. Unlike the Pink Floyd song lyrics, this isn't just another brick in the wall (sorry, I couldn't resist). There is some meaning to this. 

The bricks and chalk are an homage to the Twilight Zone episode "Little Girl Lost", where a child stumbles through a wall and into another dimension. Basically, these bricks are a gateway to another dimension (which knowing Disney, still exits into a gift shop). There's actually more to this than just a wall. In the past, you could hear crying and a little girl calling for help along with the sound of wind and the feeling of air being blown at you from the wall.
