The Millennium Biltmore Hotel is a 4-star hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Its former lobby, the Rendezvous Court, serves as the design inspiration for the lobby seen during the queue of The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and subsequently in Walt Disney Studios.
The lobby design is evidenced in the Moorish Revival style with a unique curved 24-carat gold accented ceiling as well as archways that are mimicked in the attraction’s version.
Walt Disney visited here on at least one occasion that we know of: to attend the 9th Annual Academy Awards in 1937. The ceremony was held in the Biltmore Bowl, an 11,500 square foot conference venue in the hotel. Walt accepted an Oscar for Best Short Subject Cartoon as the Producer of The Country Cousin.
