Think the key to successfully integrating a ride into a pavilion is not making it stand out. Mexico is the best example of this and the ride, while being fun, actually adds so much to the building.
It's why Frozen doesn't quite work for me in Norway compared to the other pavilions, it's a bit too much in your face where Maelstrom blended in. The size of the queues doesn't help in truth.
If they can ensure Ratatouille doesn't take over the pavilion, it will be a fantastic addition.
I wonder if they might rerecord some of the French lines or reanimate the characters speaking?To be honest, I don't see them making large changes, other than the change from French dialogue to English.
While I don't experience it, there was one member of my party to who gets somewhat motion sick. The motion was gentler than a similar ride like Transformers or Spiderman. She was fine, but I'd say it's in the middle of the scale, but leaning a little closer to Star Tours than Soarin'.
This would seem to solve or at least mitigate the problem of the backstage of France being seen from the Gondolas. Nice.
I know you're upset, but come on dude...by Fall?There's literally no research or development or creative "imagineering" necessary. It's just a matter of cloning and assembling the pieces.
Houses are constructed by small companies in a matter of weeks, there's no reason this small ride consisting mostly of SCREENS has to take years to assemble by one of the biggest corporations in the world.
It's lazy and a slap in the face. We've already been waiting decades for something new to this section of the park so the least they could do is get things up in a hurry if it's just a carbon copy of an already existing ride. It'd ease the pain of not announcing the Brazilian pavilion as well.
Why does everyone act like Universal is some model of perfection and the leader? They are a distant second and even with the somewhat disappointing D23, Disney has absolutely widened the gap and will be an even clearer leader in 2021 when all this is done.Disney being quick:
Meanwhile at Universal...
Let me draw a more accurate sketch now the word is out.
Yes, no, no, yes.Based on the concept art I have some questions:
- Will we access this area from the far right side the current pavilion in the small courtyard to the right of the perfume shop near International Gateway?
- The Eiffel Tower looks like it may be moved every so slightly, what will that be like?
- Will the new quick service bakery and deli be completely changed to open out toward the new attraction or even serve as a walkthrough area from the old pavilion to the new part?
- If most of the show building is in the back part of the expansion pad between France & Morocco (with it also possibly backup up into the Morocco pavilion), does that still leave room in between France & Morocco on the promenade for future expansion (something the size of the African Outpost)?
