News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

Honestly the old Magic Kingdom Skyway sightlines were terrible except for when you passed over 20k Leagues... otherwise it was a lot of unthemed dirty rooftops... And despite that it was still nice to do and had HUGE lines... This Gondola is an active form of transport, not really an attraction the way the Skyway was...So I would think the sightlines matter even less.

I understand that.
Simply pointing out that passengers are going to be coming in and travelling along a route with a sightline that is far lower than the images we have seen present.
I was always under the assumption that Ratatouille got approved primarily so the skyliner wouldn’t expose the parking lot behind the France pavilion and would instead give guests a view of a beautiful brand new E ticket attraction.

Also, guests fleeing a packed DHS by skyliner would have something to do on arrival at Epcot besides booking it to Future World to ride Test Track for the 367th time.

The vaunted Disneyland monorail has some pretty crappy sight lines as well... that really surprised me.

I honestly think majority of guests will be engaged in conversation and not really looking around that much. You are facing inwards and towards each other. So backstage views shouldn’t matter.

But this isn’t the Gondola thread. So about that Rat?

Or add coverings to the Rat Courtyard area. Perhaps?
I wonder if they could just move it more towards the center of the building it's on now? And maybe build up the false rooflines a bit?

I'm not a quantitative expert on forced perspective, but I wonder if there's a solution like that or whether such a move would necessitate redesigning the tower to re-proportion the forced perspective?
