    The building looks great. Wish they would have done this when the park opened. All these changes are really nice, the quality that they are pumpig out is amazing.

    See this is what Disney can do when they're trying to be Disney, not Six Flags.

    Really, it's just best if we don't question these things and move on.
    Can you imagine if people really did that?

    Really not understanding the level of praise this building is getting.

    It does not look at all like something you would find in reality. It looks so sterile and inhuman. I would much prefer something more gritty and lived-in looking, like the American Waterfront land of TDS.

    I know that this look fits better with the other buildings in PP, but it still kinda looks like a shopping mall entrance...

    I just did a Google search for mall entrances and instantly found something that would have looked better...

    with the tacky christmas lights?

    the TLM building is still covered in scaffolding in tarps and looks better than that.

    That would not have fit in with PP whatsoever. It's actually kind of ugly too. The fountain is nice though.

    This is one of those things that you just can't do. You can't compare TDS with DCA and you can't compare the amount of money the Dubai has at its disposal on whatever they wish to build with what a building that is housing a ride on a Californian pier looks like. The building looks pretty darn great and it's not even finished yet.

    With that aside, the Ursula AA looks incredible. As a Mechanical/Aero engineer, I love seeing stuff like this and how fluid movements have come in the past decade.

    I personally thinkthe building for TLM looks really nice. Compared to what used to be there. At the current state it's in right now it's turning out to be a nice piece of work for sure. I'm sure once it opens in 2 1/2 months it will look even better with finished paint and the addition of landscaping.
    Not really thinking of a mall entrance when I look at the attraction building but that's just my opinion.
    If that's a shopping mall entrance then that must be South Coast Plaza
    (best mall ever by the way)

    All right then. Let's take all the "all-year-round Christmas lights" off the rest of Paradise Pier and Main Street to see how that looks at night. Sound like a plan?

    I think you misread somewhere along the line...

    Well I guess I have to be the Devil's Advocate on Ursula. They keep saying she is the largest A/A figure they have worked on. I am hoping not. Let's see. First there was the Yeti in Expedition Everest. Biggest, meanest, ect. A/A ever. No longer working. Next came Murphy. 45 foot tall A/A Dragon. Fell apart before it even started. Fell and broke it's neck. Has failed several times. What's in store for us with Ursula? Haven't they learned their lesson yet. Bigger is not necessarily better in Audio Animatronics. Maybe 3rd time will be the charm. But it worries me. The building looks great and beautiful. At night it's going to be spectacular. The ride itself, from what little we have seen in sneak peeks, looks amazing. But will Ursula be the new Murphy? Only time will tell.
