    Solving "open shop doors" and the "energy / AC conservation" issue

    I was just looking at some pics of how shops / restaurants are opening doors to encourage guests to enter and was wondering if the future planning of vestibules would solve the problem. For example, keep the main entry set of doors open to encourage guest to come in, with a second set of doors to conserve cooled air. Wondering if this can be added over time, or at least be taken into consideration for future planning / building. What do you think?

    Buena Vista Street depicts old Los Angeles. The climate of southern California is such that double sets of doors to protect from the elements just don't exist in any significant ways like in other parts of the country.

    While I think putting in such doors would be effective, I don't think it would match the architectural theme at all.

    Anyone with more knowledge of 1920's southern California architecture than me please chime in.

    i know, i agree, but i think a little creative license may be needed to make an exception. it's really expensive and not very green.

    Simple solution, enclose the entire park with a lightweight clear dome. Air condition the entire place and dont worry about the doors being open anymore

    It's true. Why don't they just have, "Come In We're OPEN" signs in colors and fonts that would make sense for the time period and individual store? It doesn't seem like it should be that difficult. Maybe even a bell that dings on some doors. I know there are STILL Main Streets across America where there are "We're OPEN" signs and bells on doors that ding when you open them. It would probably cost them $40, tops.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

    How about SALE signs. I know nothing`s on sale, but everything is for sale. If BVS represents 1929, they could put up Going Out of Business Sale signs

    Among different types of shop doors, most important is sliding doors that is is very attractive from customers point of view, but little expensive from simple one. Aluminum folding doors are also very amazing. Simple glass doors are risky one. All these are good for air condition system.
