I understand that.Gondolas are going to see backstage Epcot and some pretty poor sightlines. That was an accepted problem of the route.
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.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.
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.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.
The vaunted Disneyland monorail has some pretty crappy sight lines as well... that really surprised me.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 agree! I rode the Skyliner as a nine-year-old in Disneyland many moons ago and enjoyed seeing the "guts" as much then as I do now. Far from ruining the illusion, it makes everything that much more impressive to me. I get that others feel differently, however.We call it “Disney guts”. It’s not all pretty, but it’s all interesting.
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?Or add coverings to the Rat Courtyard area. Perhaps?
