A large panel to the left of the breezeway is open, possibly for the movement of large equipment or ease of access for the crews. This is where Club Cool is rumored to go.

Are the folks in the art above artistic renderings of Real people or are they Fake like imagineer Zach Riddley who i still believe is a social media persona managed by different imagineers (depends on who is free at the time). If someone sues Zach Riddley; he will get a rude awakening at the begin of the trial.
