Sorry, that's not the impression I intended to give. I was referring to the Orlando design vs the Anaheim design. I got a little bit of tunnel vision in the discussion. Sorry for the confusion.
That said, the Anaheim and Paris versions aren't simpyl carbon copies of each other. Oh, how the imagineers would love it if building attractions could be that simple.

Exactly. The imagineers were expressly limited to a footprint bordered by A Bug's Land on the west (which itself has a service corridor behind it), the Hyperion Theater to the north, and the backstage maintenance area next to Harbor Blvd on the east. Also, the maximum south perimeter could not extend past A Bug's Land's south perimeter. Also not apparant to a lot of people simply looking at aerial views is that much of ToT's power comes from a huge series of power relays to its east side, further limiting available space (in fact, when you're backstage in that area, you feel like you're in the middle of a So Cal Edison power plant).
