Wait how is it not ADA accessible? And I didn’t know that about the paint, very interesting. I’m really curious the plans of the whole thing, honestly seems better if they upgraded everything including the lines and somehow do major remodeling at the contemporary. But we all know that wouldn’t happen. I do however think they would consider extending the stations for them to be longer.Yeah definitely. Those existing gates are really dumb because they have to swing out which means they have to be set back from the train. I think Disney chose that simply because it was what they know, they're the same type of gates used on all the attractions. Those outside platforms are so narrow so any small amount of space would help.
It's probably worth noting there's a lot of reluctance on Disney's part in upgrading the MK station. It's not ADA accessible and from what I understand if they do anything too significant they lose their grandfathered status and would have to make it accessible. There's also lead paint (and probably other stuff too) which makes it difficult to do work on it. When they cut out the existing gates for the new automatic ones they had to seal off the whole area and send guys in with hazmat suits just to strip a way a 1/2 inch section of paint where the cuts were going to be made.
