Sheltered-at-home Park nostalgist
Pickpockets roaming the streets or it isn't authentic.
There was already a tangent on the ride that was deleted.Maybe a can of worms I shouldn't open up yet again, but now that the BatB attraction that was the other candidate for this spot has opened at TDL, I'm kind of interested to know if those who preferred that option still feel that way:
I always thought that Ratatouille fit the pavilion better, but I also kind of think the ride seems a bit more fun despite being less elaborate and technically impressive.
It’s still pretty much bare with some trees in the way. Screenshot from a recent MickeyViews video.
Compared to DLR and DLP, I've always felt WDW (and particularly Magic Kingdom) is surprisingly full of these types of exposed bare walls. The backs of the Main Street USA facades were also always visible from certain angles.That’s what I was saying, before people never really needed to look at it because it was tucked away in a quiet corner, but now with the new entrance over here this wall is going to have a lot more opportunity to be noticed. But sometimes they just hope you don’t see it, like this big wall behind Cheshire, and maybe that’s what they’re going for here too.View attachment 500008
Also, not sure they're going for realism. Probably more like an idealized representation. In that sense, the bare walls stick out--it wasn't the product of years of development, it was literally built from the ground up for a theme park. Unthemed elements stick out.Sure, but generally bare wall warehouses aren't attached to old residential buildings. They're in a different part of the city.
