It's interesting to me how detailed the whole building HAS to be because of rides like screamin' and the sun wheel. Think about DL buildings and how they all basically have a front facade and the back is just a big grey or green wall. Because of the nature of the rides around it, they had to either sacrifice show and let people riding the roller coaster be able to see the facades or build the ride complex in a 3-D way they haven't had to in many past cases. I dunno, just find it kinda cool. Not that it's something they've never done before, just that I'm glad they did it here.

I was thinking the same thing RumRunner! I love how even the parts that can only be seen from Screamin are being themed up. It being done so very well. The detail in each individual shingle, and the changes in their shape is incredible.
Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter
I wish they finished the entire building portions under Screamin'. Disney used to do that. I don't care if you don't notice on Screamin's, you still can notice it from the Sun Wheel and it really distorts the look of the Victorian theme. But the finished parts looks beautiful. I can't wait to see the Midway games new facades that are still behind tarps. I also love the varying color scheme. It adds depth and brings up the details. It makes Paradise Pier 1.0 look as bad as it really is.
For as much complaining as some have done before... the buildings look EXACTLY like those from the Pike or countless Victorian Theme Parks. While I may not like the ride, I will enjoy the architecture.
