In 1966, Walt Disney was diagnosed with lung cancer, contracted after years of smoking cigarettes. His illness and its connection to cigarette smoking prompted the Imagineers to remove Rod Sterling's signiture cigarette from the pre-show video in the Tower of Terror.

My understanding is that this is false.

" It is a misconception that Serling's trademark cigarette is absent from his hand due to the family-friendly atmosphere of the ride, as it is actually absent in the original footage as well."

- Mark Silverman, "Voice" of Rod Serling on Tower of Terror.
