    Tower of terror does have lots of empty space but mainly on the lower few levels. Not any office space but breakroom, restrooms and stockroom on the lower level.

DCA's ODV (Outdoor Ventures) warehouse is behind the boardwalk games (you can see it from the top of the highest point on Screamin').
    The only other building on mainstreet that has a significant 2nd story is the Emporium where the 2nd floor contains the stock room and a few tiny offices. stock rooms are otherwise crammed anywheres just out of site of guests.
    Other lands such as New Orleans and Fantasyland have much more interesting complexes. Main Street is old, and it mostly areas cannibalizing what was there before. I.E. The showcase stock room is in the old Hill Brothers Coffee House kitchen.

    I didn't get too in-depth of the area back there, but I did some walking around... There's storage for large cranes, as well as garbage bins, trucks, and a tram route for CMs... Mostly things from DCA shoes are kept back there. And there's the DCA Cafe for CMs.

    So where is food/merch stored for all those Main St stores? And, where are the operations offices for all the lower mgmt that handle daily ops? I work at a theme aprk and our offices are all hidden on the second floors and large back areas of buildings.

    GR1 -- some corrections to your information:

    1) PBX still maintains an office above the opera house, they have not moved offsite
    2) I do not believe that you have to go through walt's bathroom to access the patio
    3) there are two entrances to the appartment: up the staircase you mentioned, AND via the patio itself. This entrance is located up the stairs from the back-stage city hall door.

    Upstairs on Main St.? It's a roof.

    for the most part main street has no upper floors, just look at the height of the ceiling next time you're in the meporium or any other shop. once you add AC on the roof, it's done. thanks to forced perspective and lots of tiny windows. Of course, Dr Bitz lives in one of them.

    There was a TEAM Center up over the bank, but they closed it. I believe the Public Address System is up there though, as well.

    They're made to look 3-story, but really they're only 2-story.... 2nd Story is something like 60% normal size and 3rd floor is only 40% normal size. Makes the street "look" longer, taller, wider than it really is.

    In the '80s and very early '90s it was offices and a very narrow staircase with linoleum that made you feel like you stepped into a time warp. The wonderful group of longtime switchboard operators used to have a huge space above the Opera House. Never been in the other second stories of the rest of Main Street except for Walt's apartment.

    Are there other floors? I always thought they were just built tall.

    I know for sure that the DL Operator is sitting up there...

    There's also a dentist, a music lesson studio...
