    Imagine standing in the middle of the desert of Cars Land and being able to see the ToT hotel. There's nothing they can do about that, unfortunately.

      Cars Land will have a large show building, probably 40-50' in height that will house the indoor part of RSR. The backside of that building will probably be the usual colored (hopefully tan/orange) wall. On top of that will be the rock/cliff work, which from inside DCA will hide views of the outside world and the power lines, and from outside DCA will probably be fully themed. So from outside, you'll see high rock work like that at BTMRR with a tan/orange wall at the bottom, which will mostly be hidden by trees. Therefore, no eyesore.

      There's no way the Disney will be paying for rockwork on the outside of the attraction. The amount of rockwork already laid out for the attraction itself is apparently the most extensive that anything Disney has ever done, including the Everest attraction. To almost double that for anything other than show will probably not be done. So the exterior of the facility and rockwork will probably resemble a huge 100 foot wall from the outside.

        That would be cool--then I'd get to eat the whole dessert myself! I hope it includes chocolate. )

          We're still talking in terms of quantitative comparisons that seem a little dubious to me, unless anyone has a credible source on 'em. And the rockwork would be far from doubled if it extended along the back. We're talking about a huge, sprawling area of rock formations versus a narrow, near-vertical slope of rockwork that wouldn't even extend to ground level, since foliage and fences would obscure that area, and there'd need to be doors and so forth down there anyway. However...I agree with your conclusion that Disney won't theme the backside. And actually, re-examing the concept art and models, I don't think Cars Land is going to be nearly as close to Harbor as I imagined it'd be. The visibility issue will be a lot smaller than I thought it'd be, I think.

            Agreed. The bulk of the rock work is on the front, covering the show building, plus pushing out into the rest of Cars Land and the cliffs, of course. The back of those cliffs, if themed, probably would amount to about 5% of the total. And as you say, the lower parts will be covered by trees.

            Cars Land won't be that close to Harbor but pretty close to Katella.
