I think the fact that the parks are at capacity during spring break shows you that the demand is there. They are at 35% full with all of the international borders shut down, so you basically have parks full of locals and out of state guests. Not to mention all of the pit of state guests in the US that are just waiting for the vaccine to come through and then they will be there too.

I assume it has been talked about countless times, but I’m guessing the show building/backstage of the ride won’t change from how it is now?

It looks awful from what I’ve seen from Skyliner videos.

I believe it was confirmed that in building the Skyliner, Imagineering accepted that sight lines didn’t have to be considered from the gondolas.

That's a shame but I'm not surprised.

I think it's the only sightline that is desperate to be addressed on the Skyliner.

I do find it interesting that Avengers Campus is opening on June 4th, roughly a month and a week after Disneyland reopens following a 14ish month closure and a year after its initial opening date, whereas Ratatouille is going to open roughly a year and a quarter after its original opening timeframe, despite the Orlando parks only being closed for a few months.

I'd say the most likely reason, is that the majority of Californians will be vaccinated by June. Secondly, since the expansion is an entire land, it can add a sizable amount of capacity to the park, and thus, increase the number of people allowed through the gates. If my brain serves me right, Epcot has the highest capacity of any of the Florida parks, so the Ratatouille expansion would create a marginal boost.

Also, it is opening 6 days before Velocicoaster. I guess Disney wants some buzz.

Really glad to see a Disney project opening up though!

To be fair they didn't seem to bother when they had the Skyway in the MK. 20,000 Leagues track and show building clearly visible. The not so nice roof tops of various buildings along with IASW and HM show buildings on display also.

Funny how Disney is opening up a Universal type ride (Ratatouille) and Universal opening up a Disney type ride (Secret Life of Pets). I'm pleasantly surprised how good the ride is and the queue is well done. I'm more attached to the Ratatouille IP since it's my favorite Pixar movie but good job to Universal,
Hopefully the plans for SLOP in USF come to fruition - though they may have to get in the queue.
