Wow, that was fast! Thanks. I guess I can understand what people mean. It does kind of ruin the illusion, doesn't it? Of course, if you can't see it from inside the park, that's a plus, but if you've already seen it from outside the park, I can imagine it would kind of stick in your head. Well, whatever. Thanks for posting.

Disney only has to commit to the "illusion" once you are in it's parks.

And that, they do excellently. They've done it that way with the orginal park for years, right?

Doesn't surprise me that people will actually take time out of their trip to complain about being able to see an (obvious) show building - from a parking lot.

::roll:: What-ever.

Wow.. 100Mill couldnt afford theming to cover every visible area of the ride? Thats alot of money! Its like paying tons of money for plastic surgery only to look like the perfect person from the front, with a saggy arse..

The only people complaining are probably diehard disney fans, or enthusiasts. I would think they would complain only because the disney 'magic' is kind of ruined, and by their standards in the past it makes them look a little sloppy. Im sure thought that the GP doesnt pay enough attention to know that they are looking at E:E when they are driving through the parking lot. They are just excited to be going to AK.

I myself could care less if the whole ride looked like a warehouse.. as long as the coaster was fun!!

I agree it's not that big of a deal, but I still find it disappointing they didn't try to cover it more. I guess it's kind of hard to mask a 200 foot mountain. This is Disney though, I'm sure they could plant a lot of trees or something to block the view from that angle.

Might as well include these two I found on the net.

(Pardon my double post, here.)

Ah, the dispair of knowing "the truth" about "the attraction."

Enjoy. :wink:

(And BTW - there were taken last summer, while The Mountain was still being built.)

It is really noticable from the parking lot... but not as bad as that aerial picture! That's awful! I hope they at least paint it a similar color to the mountain... maybe that's on the to do list before the real opening.

Oh, I'm pretty sure they already took care of it in these past months, what with all the new trees coming in for planting...

And I think they painted it a brown color, yes anybody? On the back, there.

Now that's the shot we all need - a current back view shot "up close." There's a roadway (probably a workroad) that travels around it all.

Hmmm. Erik? ;)
