Has anyone had issues using the employee entrance with the now "old" premier membership (from last March) during Christmastown? We haven't been since Hallowscream and are planning to go tomorrow.

There is a huge difference between supporting a lounge in general and supporting a lounge specifically in DarKastle.
While I would love to see DarKastle used for something better, I think a member lounge there would be cool until they can do something greater. Imagine having refreshments in a DarKastle dining room. Now, I would go for that. COS would be nice too, as others have said.

With the size of the Darkastle building there is no reason to not be able to take a chunk out and make a decent size lounge. Even with two mazes at HOS there was still a ton of empty space. The old ballroom would have made for nice lounge decor, but sadly that was destroyed last spring.

I dunno how much space is actually used in DK for stuff but it seemed like a lot of space was under-utilized last HOS. Lots of empty pathways and lots of open building everywhere. Santa's Workshop shouldn't take up that much room so even if both mazes stay up year round and the Santa meet and greet spot is still there, I'm sure there's more than enough room to stick lounge space somewhere.

ha, either you overestimate the size of the building or you underestimate the true size of the attractions that take up space in there.

the only possible way to fit anything in there, is if they take out some stuff, which they wont do because $$$, the same reason cornered still stands all year round

Or they could just reduce the size consumption of what is there. I know both haunted houses had hallways that were much too wide, could've been laid out much better.

There were huge dead spaces around the mazes, they spent a fortune in black curtains to hide it all at the exit of Frostbite. In reality they made the paths in both mazes way to big, they need to make the paths smaller. When you walk into a 20X40 room with no set pieces and only one scare actor walking around that is a waste of space. Only thing that has to be where it is is that electrical room that kinda sits out in the middle of no where. They old ride vehicles are in there too, we all know the ride is never coming back so move the cars to storage somewhere else. Just because of poor planning of a design of a couple mazes dosent mean things can be reworked to make it all fit better

all that dead space with black curtains between frostbite exits and DDs exit is all taken up by santa alone

electrical rooms literally stick out and take up the enitre center section of the building

sure smaller/redesigned houses could save space, but atm rn irl nothing else is getting squeezed in there.

Move any of the mazes to Royal Palace. That would create a lot of space and I feel it would be better used there. Plus the park wouldn't have to drop anything.

Are the cabanas still in use? I feel that would be a great place to stick something provided there's enough space.

The reason that they took one away was that the time line was becoming too tight and they were having trouble transitioning to Twas. There were complaints from Elvis and others that the rink wasn't setup in time to allow for enough rehearsal time. I don't see a maze going back in there while the are using it for a Christmas show.

Santa's Workshop has a very temporary setup. I do think they could easily set it up and take it down for the most part. The problem then might be setting the lounge up and taking it down. I don't know how hard it could be, but Santa's Workshop is about 80% curtains, and I couldn't see FrostBite lasting much longer.
