So, there are dumpsters outside the two main entrances to Innoventions Northwest. Gutting must be happening then. We still thinking they're gonna salvage the structure?
Seems like it's still coming down

If we're deciding which is the objectively better attraction, I'd say Beast by several nautical miles.

If we're asking the better fit for EPCOT (recognizing that truly neither of these really fit), I would indeed still cast my vote for Ratatouille.


Man up and put this in MK's Fantasyland where it belongs, Disney. For it's imperfections, it's still a flagship attraction fitting of your so-called flagship park. Bite the bullet and find a way to bring it there -- and then give the other parks several gifts to draw people back away from the chronically overcrowded MK.

But I know it won't happen these days.
They have plenty of space behind Fantasyland as anyone who has ridden the WDWRR is acutely aware of.

I'd just assume there was a staircase landing on the other side.
Again, the whole point of such a door is to avoid the stairs. You put the door on the floor where you need the big stuff to go, not the landing that only gets it most of the way there. Imagine an elevator that didn’t take you to the second floor, just one of the stair landings. It’d be stupid and pointless.

Not to avoid the stairs, but to avoid the turnaround at the mid-point landing.

Just, no. It’s a double door, so that’d be a very, very wide stair with unusually short landings. Why would you spend the money to make really wide stairs but then make the landings too short? Even then, you’re still just adding extra work instead of putting the door on the actual floor. You’re hoisting stuff up all but a few feet of the way there to then lug it up a few steps.

Maybe a furnishable loft/balcony? I dunno...just making wild guesses at this point.

I agree, you shouldn't. But why not try to figure it out? I would just about kill to have a wide door that leads out to a roof-deck on top of our first-floor addition...the main stairs to get to the second floor are so freaking narrow we can barely get a queen-sized mattress up them, let alone a dresser or anything of size. Plus, all the first floor, exterior doors are either relatively narrow, or have obstructions that make bringing large objects in dang near impossible (we had to take the doors off of our new fridge just to get it in the house).

An exterior door on an upper level is not what is nonsensical, the door actually exists and for a reason. The problem is that it has no relationship to anything else on the facade. The horizontal rhythm just has a huge gap at the door with the door not even being centered. The style of the building is one where regularity is a feature, windows are usually have an equal spacing between them. Then the door does not vertically relate to the second floor windows. These doors you would like in your home are on the second floor, not a few feet below the second floor.
