This theming is way better than any Disney ride I have been on in North America!!! Wow Universal you really did a great job on this one.

I see something very wrong with this picture. It looks like forced perspective was used on the room (it get narrower toward the top of the room to give the appearance of looking taller) but not on the pictures hanging on the walls.
The pictures completely ruin the illusion. Disney would never let something like this slide.
Alain, since you are leaving the blog at the end of the month, could you just focus on Disney for the next two weeks?

actually they did not make it narrower at the top they don't need to use forced perspective in that room.

Alain, could you tell me how you get the pictures in your header to change?

The room may get narrower at the top, the pictures on the wall do not however. This ruins the illusion of length.
If the designer used perspective on the frames, it would have looked more natural and realistic.
