May the Force Be With You

Not everything is as it seems at Walt Disney World.
Walt Disney began his career as a storyteller. When his kids were young, he would spend time at local amusement parks. During that time, amusement parks weren't the most wholesome or cleanest places to take a family. Walt came up with the idea to build an amusement park where the entire family could spend the day in a safe, clean, and fin environment.
As he drew up plans for Disneyland, being the storyteller that he was, one of his decisions to save money was to invest in the what he considered to be "on stage" - the areas of the park that guests could see, and leave the backstage areas unfinished. So much of what you see as you experience one of the Wald Disney theme parks is a facade.
Disney's Hollywood Studios was initially designed to reflect actual working sets and on purpose several of the icons at several attractions are purposely "unfinished" on one side to invoke the feeling of being on a real movie set and seeing the back stage part of the prop.
