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.
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?

Looks very nice! Anyone have an idea of capacity and opening date? Also when Rat and Guardians open. Do you think rope drop will be better and more dispersed than it is now. Because everyone won't be running to Soarin', Test Track or Frozen?

Perhaps 1 or two will even become Tier 2! Purely a guess, but I think Tier 1 will settle at Test Track, Guardians, and Rat. Tough choice between the first 2. Capacity is identical to Paris’ ride. Opening is a little over a year away for Rat. Some are deeply concerned that there is nothing significant to market going into Summer 2019 unlike the last several years. They’ll be able to market Rat next summer (and some new entertainment) and, if we are honest, guests who get in line for Galaxy’ Edge in December will likely get into the land in June, so it’ll still be “new” throughout 2020. If Slinky Dog Dash is “NOW OPEN!” after 8 months, SWL will be “NEW!” until 2025.

Great point! I believe this ride is a great addition to World Showcase!

If anything screams "it's time to update the park, ya'll", it's guests having to 'run' to Test Track. woof.
