    Welcome to the boards!

    I think this must have been TV `enhancements`. As far as I know, the only loading areas available are in the Boiler Room and at unload (as in the only places physically available to get on and off)

    There is no place where a Bellhop could stand in the drop shaft and have the riders pass in front of or behind him - not to mention he could get sucked into the shaft by the air pressure!

    Correct - TV enhancements, just like all Disney commercials, and TV specials!

    Chromakey special effects (superimposing the foreground bell hop in front of the shaft footage). Either that or one SERIOUS snapped cable...
