A new line of pins inspired by The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is available at Walt Disney World. These pins all say “Hollywood Tower Hotel” (in a font we have never seen related to this ride before) instead of the attraction’s full or shortened name, most likely to avoid licensing fees from CBS.

  1. I actually like the Hollywood Tower Hotel themed merchandise and prefer it over anything conspicuously indicating the attraction name or the TV show name. The idea of treating the building like a real hotel just adds to the story and makes sense to me.

    It’s not for everyone, and I get it. But I miss the merchandise from around 20 years ago in the Hollywood Tower Hotel store that was themed to the hotel and not the ride (towels, robes, key chains, do not disturb signs, etc. I bought and still use a bath towel set and coffee mug (only saying Hollywood Tower Hotel on it). I don’t see it as cheaping out on the licensing; I see it as good theming. Something similar would be selling Grisly Hall or Jungle Navigation Co. LTD merchandise instead of Country Bear Jamboree or Jungle Cruise merch.

    I will admit that the type face used does look a bit off. So I agree with you there that that look is odd.
