If I remember correctly, also about halfway back
in the theater, it was a couple of steps higher,
with a bar dividing the two sections.
I was just doing a rough 'sketch' so I could be absolutely sure of what you guys were saying. If someone else wants to do a better one (meaning someone who actually remembers the whole thing), by all means, go ahead.
And the 3 beige half-circles, I should have mentioned, represent Max, Buff and Melvin.
EDIT: Oh yeah! Thanks, guys for your help!

So, were the theaters laid out like example A, or B?
Figure A is very accurate. There was a "Loge" section in the back, you had to go up about 3 steps to get to it. I worked there the summer it opened in 1972. At the end of the long entrance hallway were several emergency doors which led to the employee break area and a lot of backstage shops.
anybody have pics from inside the Disneyland CBJ queue? It sounds very different from the CBJ queue at WDW. By my first DLR trip, CBJ had been long closed. Oh, how I long for them to evict Pooh and make Critter Country great again.
Interesting they were on the left at Disneyland. They're on the right at WDW.
Aimster, the enter/exit directions are switched at wdw. at DL you entered from the right(facing the stage) and exited left. WDW enters left exits right. The rest of the arrangement of the characters and show scenes are the same.
As I recall, the row of lobby doors did not open directly into the theater. There was a little hallway you had to walk through before you actually entered the theater, and the same was true as you exited the theater. The hallway had illustated pictures of the cast in fancy gilded frames on the walls, and ramps with brass railings seperating the guests entering the theater so that they would split into three groupings that led to the uppper middle and lower sections of the auditorium. Each one of three doors into the actual theater had a velvet curtain around the frame, that would each close automatically as the show started, and open automatically when the show was over.
