And past the lush landscaping, you can glimpse a little of Scar – especially his green eyes and hair:

Two weeks ago, someone had keyed a car in the Cars section (according to WFTV). I can’t help but think that Disney will eventually end up putting barriers around the Cars characters (we had been told that the signs were a “first step” to keeping guests off). I noticed some scratches and scuffs in a few of the cars as we walked by yesterday. It seems that putting a couple of PhotoPass photographers in this area during the day/early evening could help – guests could have their photos taken, and the photographers could watch over the cars.

And in a parking lot area not yet opened, you can see Simba:
