This sounds like a bunch of presumptions that I highly doubt resonate with the average guest.. which even you cite as the ones impacted. The average guest would have been stumped by the old effect, and not the new one? The difference is now people know it's possible to do such things with CGI.. whether they realize the real-time abilities or not is questionable.. but such an argument would be that CGI has ruined all special effects everywhere where the guest can't move around the effect.
There is no glaring obvious 'hey it's a movie screen' moment in the ride. Have you ridden it yourself yet?
