That really is very cool. It definitely shows you how little I know about roller coaster construction. The first thing that ran through
my mind when I saw the picture was, why start there? Still very cool to see.
Probably started there because there is additional construction that has to happen to close that section in once the track is installed.

I'm spitballing here, and it's probably already been discussed elsewhere, but I'm guessing that the roof/walls were constructed first due to all the integrated electronics/technologies built into the track/ride that needed shielding from the weather. This ain't space mountain after all.

Anything that sensitive would be installed after the track had been installed.

You can't even do the rough electric work (running conduit, putting up boxes, etc) until the building is weather tight, because all the inside electrical materials don't carry a weather rating.

Literally. Its an off-the-shelf coaster they put in a box and added cutouts
I think it was a custom layout made for Disney. Mainly because there's only one other version of this ride (as far as I know) and it came after RNRC. I think an off-the-shelf model would constitute something like an Arrow Corkscrew, which was all over the place.
