Comments for Birds Eye View Reveals Running Disney Parks Attraction Is Unfinished

    It’s kind of weird, because it does look like there was supposed to be something more there. At the same time, Disney never (almost never?) has “finished” the backside of buildings that can’t be viewed from the main stage/view areas. This part of the building faces “backstage” and away from the park. I’m not sure what the benefit would be of finishing this.

      It’s basically a film set. False fronts, unfinished backs.
      What I thought was weird was seeing the back of Pandora as you enter on the WDW buses.

    If it was not finished it would not be running. ISTM must pay the writers by the word and article.

    It is entirely finished. It’s supposed to look that way to blend in with other buildings. You’re not supposed to be able to see the Everest part of the mountain from other areas of the park in order to preserve the illusion that you’re traveling from one part of the world to the other

      Also why would you spend time and money on rockwork for areas of the ride building that aren’t visible by guests? Cast members don’t need the full Everest illusion backstage.

    I think it was meant to look like this, as far as they are concerned the ride is finished. It cuts down on cost, construction deadline and viewers can’t see the backend of it anyways. Reminds me of structures used in movie sets.

    It’s a shame they didn’t finish the mountain on all sides like the Matterhorn in Disneyland. Approaching the park from the road would have been more impressive if Everest had been complete in the distance. They could/should also extend the Dinoland area further so in that case the mountain needs to be completed.

    It’s amazing the drivel that comes up on this site. So many rides at Disney (and many other theme parks) are like this. Why would they waste money and resources on the back of an attraction that visitors don’t see? It serves no purpose. It’s not unfinished. Such a shame that all your recent articles seem to be trying so hard to put down Disney down.

    Who cares what the back looks like? Certainly not the guests. They don’t see it and don’t care any more than I do.
