The difference being one is a painted flat of a landscape, wherein desaturating the color helps to fool the eye into it appearing at a distance. In this case, the flats are small, chimney shaped pieces that jut off the top of the structure, belying their implication of being a three dimensional object.Or Tokyo Disneyland
I assume they want to give the illusion that "Paris" is not just 30 yards deep ending in an alleyway with dumpsters immediately behind the show building but instead make it look like the roofs go on for miles.And why did the flats need to be that much higher than the showbuilding? Bringing it down a few feet would do wonderes!
The typical Parisian Street is tall enough that you don’t tend to see rolling rooftops beyond. The flats are there to conceal the parapet of the show building. A berm would not do anything as it would need to be massive and go where the queue and main facade is located.I assume they want to give the illusion that "Paris" is not just 30 yards deep ending in an alleyway with dumpsters immediately behind the show building but instead make it look like the roofs go on for miles.
Is this issue mostly caused by the Skyway exposing guests to backstage areas? Probably berms are the only real answer but very difficult to retrofit.
Good question. Rat will definitely be a Tier A attraction, but what gets bumped, if anything? I could see EF get bumped, or maybe they just leave things alone and just add Rat to Tier A without moving anything down. I also wonder if they'll move a 3-tier system when GotG opens.What's our current best guess of what happens to Epcot's FastPass tiers when this opens? If MMRR isn't getting boarding groups, I assume this won't either. So that would put it in Group A I'm guessing, but does any of the existing Group A slide to Group B?
