    Am I the only one who can't make heads or tails of the concept art as it relates to the existing pavilion?

    Everything we see in this pic is on the right side of the existing France pavilion.

    Bottom left is where Aurora usually meets. Right side is currently water. Ride entrance looks like where the cast member backstage gate is now.

    Yeah, if that's at all realistic - none of the existing buildings in the pavilion will remain.

    It looks like we are facing in from above the bridge between France and International Gateway. They are moving the small Eiffel Tower south from its current location and placing the ride at the end of the main throughfair into the land.

    The water to the right appears to be the canal going to DHS.

    Yes.

    And all the existing buildings remain. The image is showing everything being added to the right of existing land.

    Here. This is what that area looks like now. Backstage gate to be new ride entrance:

    Here is France main. New area will go on right side of this. You can see the right side of the building on the right of France in the new concept art.

    The attraction sits to the right side of the existing pavilion. Basically that corner tucked in the back (near where Aurora meets) is getting expanded.

    Yup. Exactly.

    Looks like the building to the right of existing France is widened on bottom left side of concept art.

    Then why did the permit remove everything and reclaim the land in the adjacent pavilion spot? And that is -not- what the side of those building looks like, just for the record.

    Yea, the backside of those buildings look different/extended and given new facades. Or it's just a pretty concept art meant to over prettify just for looking goods sake.

    But there's not room to put the ride building right there, which is what is even more confusing.

    What do you want me to tell you? :lol:

    It's an expansion - not a replacement. Only logical spot based on how the concept art doesn't show any existing buildings to the right of it.

    Could those plans refer to another country perhaps? This seems like a much better way to expand france and still leave alot of space clear for a whole new country the other side. Can easily fit something else also.

    I'm pretty sure the ride building is to the left of the existing pavilion when facing in, but the entrance and new throughfair is to the right. The queue will snake behind the existing buildings.

    EDIT: I'm beginning to think this is #fakenews concept art. The placement still doesn't make sense.
