Picture if you will

As you exit riding Tower of Terror, the first thing you'll want to do is go check out the on-ride photo that was taken of you so you can laugh at the funny looking poses the photo snapped as you dropped 13 stories. Many guests overlook a classic Twilight Zone reference that his hidden in the photo area that is one of many Twilight Zone references.

The name of the ride photo area, "Picture, if you will" is a reference not to one Twilight Zone episode but something the show's host, Rod Serling, would say in many of the Twilight Zone episodes. In an episode, Serling would often set the scene for the episode by using the words "Picture if you will..." and then go on to describe the setting. Imagineers took the famous phrase and turned it around as a play on words to make the perfect setting for ride photos.
