    True, but at the front they at least tried. :stun:

    This was "themed" very lightly. Much like the backside of ToT is themed. It has theming to it, but nothing like the front. This was a backstage area before, never meant for guests to really see much of this.

    I'll keep an open mind until I see the end result of the facade as I still think there will be much more detail added.

    It looks like they also removed shutters. Or were there never any?

    That’s something they’ll likely add. I suppose they may repaint the entire thing and add actual wrought iron as well (although unlikely).

    ”Curious area in the expansion”
    It’s obviously going to be a fountain or water feature of some type. Both water and drain lines plumbed.

    There is supposed to be a fountain near the entrance of the ride, although this is a bit further forward than the concept art shows.

    I think they’ll stagger this and Mickey, and all hints are that Mickey will be ready early spring. At a pure guess, I’d go with late spring or early summer for this.

    They said summer, so I’m presuming July or August.

    The only new rides that will be open then are both rides in SWGE. Remy and MMRR are Spring and Summer attractions.

    Tim Tracker recently did a vlog at Epcot and showed the preview center. He seemed disappointed this ride was mostly screen based. If I recall, its like, 85% screen and 15% practical sets? I wouldn't get my hopes too too high here, although it could be a nice little addition this park needs.

    The middle ground between light and shadow...
    Think of it as a more tame, sedate Spider-Man/Transformers.

    Think of it as 40% sets 60% screens, the sets in the paris version are very large and very impressive and much more memorable than the screen bits.

    They’re advertising this as a Summer attraction. So yeah, there’s a chance, but there’s also a chance it doesn’t open until September.
