I watched a ride video from Disneyland Paris, yesterday just to hype up this opening, hoping it opens up soon!

Anyone seen any picture updates of this area? I’m wondering if it’ll get some more theming or if you’re just supposed to look away.

It’s still pretty much bare with some trees in the way. Screenshot from a recent MickeyViews video.

In most cases it wouldn’t bother me too much, like before as it was kinda off to the side and not a focal point, but now everyone walking to this ride is going to see this big blank wall. I know it’s not done yet so I look forward to seeing what happens.

Since people have buyer's remorse (or they think they dodged a bullet) and can't help comparing the new Beauty and the Beast ride in Tokyo with Rat... I made a separate thread for that...

I don't know. What did people do before when it had always looked like that?

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.

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.

I don't think this example in the France Pavilion would really register with many people as an exposed, un-themed wall.

Sure, but generally bare wall warehouses aren't attached to old residential buildings. They're in a different part of the city.
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.

I thought a 2021 opening was the standing rumor/inside info
There are two factions kind of fighting on Rat’s opening. Burbank wants 2021 (probably Spring), while TDO (and especially Epcot leadership) wants it in time for the holiday season.

The local thought being that Epcot could use a draw to pull people to it from the other parks (3 day vacationers seem to leave off Epcot More than any other park), and give it a bit of extra capacity.

Corporate sees holding Rat and promoting the crud out of it next year will drive attendance to the resort as a whole the most when held until 2021 when more restrictions are (hopefully) lifted.

I haven’t posted much since I was riding the Parisian version this morning.

Don’t expect this cousin to open this year as things stand.

You might be able to say but I wonder what would cause such a delay. It remains very close to being done but again we have no idea what the inside is like.

I’d assume it’s about hiring and training.

Also about spacing out the official opening of new attractions for the marketing value of having a steady drip of new things opening instead of "wasting" it by opening everything at once during low-capacity COVID times.
