It’s possible they could be used to accommodate lines that stretch outside the attraction entrance. But with virtual queuing in place, they may not see much use.

Inside the courtyard, palm trees are in place.

Large speakers are installed just steps from the gate. While we were there, we heard them play a triumphant instrumental tune.
