Really great pictures! It's truly unbelievable how different the park is starting to look....so much construction. It'll be nice to see the games in front of the Simpson's queue. Add some life to the area. But gosh, the park looks bad right now haha. So many construction walls. Reminds me of DCA a few years back. All worth it though I hope they finish the Simpsons expansion fast.
Despicable Me's facade looks fantastic, although I find it mind boggling why they didn't make the "tree" backdrop a bit taller to FULLY hide the blue show building. Seriously, just a few more feet and it would've been completely covered. Very odd choice. Also, not happy that the first part of the queue will apparently be the same old left over T2 queue area. I hope it's at least partially themed. Just seems weird that you enter through the house and then boom, back to plain metal...
SSFL will be a wonderful addition though. I'm excited
From Westcoaster's pictures, it looks like they've already cleared all of the land that the new tour animation will be located at, so it'll be interesting to see how soon they'll start construction!

They could've added clouds or a hill back drop above the trees or something else cartoony. Even disproportionate trees would be better in my book than a visible show building. You know? It's like...you go to all that effort to make such a beautiful detailed facade and you stop short...Universal is good with working with scale illusions.
Also, there's no logical reason for it to be lit up at night NOW, since when it was T2's building, the building itself was a design "icon" of sorts and very prominent. For Minion Mayhem, they've went to greater lengths to cover it and just make it "the sky" or whatever. So lighting it up at night in its new form wouldn't make much sense anymore.
