Not sure why adding detail is a problem. Imagine if people said about Main Street “yeah, too nice. It distracts everybody and slows us down as we run towards the castle and the rides!!1!” I hope they add more detail, not less. I’d prefer to have a sensory overload than be underwhelmed. Ideally, there’s a balance. But, I’d posit that the balance leans towards more detail.
Ornament is not inherently a detail.

Even in Classicism ornament has a place. It isn’t just slathered on to hide a bad design decisions.
I agree to that but I think re Rat we have to understand the context of the expansion. It’s not exactly shoehorned but there are still constraints. I have a soft spot for murals and mosaics so maybe I’m biased but I like seeing Disney do more murals. It’s one thing Disney used to excel at and something I’m glad they’re reviving. From the Fantasia mural at the Welch Grape Juice stand at DL to EC’s glorious murals to this new generation of murals, I love them all.

There is nothing about the context of the expansion that required its placement or the insistence on reusing such a lousy facade.

I’m sorry. I’m critical when I need to be but I am usually an optimist. It seems like some will continuously find fault in everything Disney does. If they added no details and ornamentation, they would cry “it’s too bland!” When they do add it “they’re just covering their poor design choices.” You just can’t win with these people. As someone who has experience building out successful hospitality enterprises, I can appreciate all the hard work that goes into designing and building these projects (and then maintaining and operating them). It’s one of the reasons I love going to the parks so much. Disney gets a lot of flack from the keyboard warriors at home but in the end it’s Disney who’s making billions every normal year.

I’m well aware of what goes into a project. I’ve explained in detail why projects like this and TRON cannot just be dropped into place. Whether or not ornament is appropriate is entirely dependent on the story being told. Forcing people to walk around the pavilion was not a necessity. Keeping an old, poorly designed facade that is not integral to the theater’s building envelope was not a necessity with hundreds of millions of dollars.

But it wasn't too bland before; it looked okay the way it was (certainly not perfect, but better than it does now).

Plus, this is supposed to look like Paris, at least to an extent. The wall painting doesn't fit just like it wouldn't fit if they painted a bunch of stuff on the American Adventure brickwork, because it would actually detract from what the building is supposed to be rather than enhancing it.

Don't even THINK about comparing this expansion to the absolute perfection of Main St. USA.

A “sneak peek”? 😂😂

It’s a clone of the ride at DLP, there are full ride videos available. But sure Disney, you promote it as a sneak peek. 🤦🏽‍♀️
