Then the black fades. Then water flows over it. Then it looks like crap again.

Did they just never look at the RoE barges?
I'm assuming that the new black paint has some higher performance durability than whatever was there before. We know the original finish only lasted a few months before looking terrible. Perhaps this paint life is measured in at least years.

I'd assume it's higher durability. But like the concept art assuming water is a solid and the fact they couldn't even cut the center docks "L" off (or build new like a lot of this project was), I'm going to question a lot of this project.

tried to pay attention as I was there last week, good views where I can still see the center stargate occur from Canada (after Le Celier enterance)-Mexico (up to La Hacienda) and Italy-Japan. I fear for the trees that line WSL in the US, they almost assuredly aren’t long for this world to increase good viewing angles. Most interestingly, the old cooperate spots (the garden below the IG gateway and the island in Italy) are horrible spots with no view of the stargate. I can’t imagine someone paying to reserve those spots, also as expected Norway/China and R&C have poor viewing angles as well. I don’t think crowds are going to spread out around the lagoon like they used to, they really didn’t think this through.

OOF. It makes Spaceship Earth look small.
The finial also makes SSE look small.

Strobes/whatever the twinkling effect is called is currently turned on for Italy. Been running for 5 mins so far. I assume show programming or something like that.

Edit: I know it's a giant nothingburger but here's a quick video just because.
Why are they testing that during the day with all the people walking around? Couldn't it wait for the evening when EPCoT is closed? :eek:

I know they aren't perfect. I just tried to cover everything as well as I could to let people decide for themselves.

I know my feelings on it (and others do too) but I felt I gave them a good chance in the pictures.
Good job of keeping other landmarks in the photos. It really shows the scale of these things. Next time I'm in EPCoT, I'll tell my family to just look away, nothing to see on the lagoon!
