As I recall, with Airside E, the waiting areas were upstairs, then after pax checked in for their flight, they would go downstairs for boarding. Very unusual design, but great for spotting!
Hey MarkTpa, is E actually being torn down as we speak? And is B still up, TPA's latest annual reports pictures show them both still around.
I'll be in MCO/TPA next month, so will get a first hand look.

BTW, major props to TPA for continually being voted among the top pax friendly airports in the US, and the world.
