Forced Perspective is the name of the building process used throught disney parks on their buildings. It makes the buildings appear to be 3 stories tall when in fact they are only 2 story.

There are 3 percentage ratios that are used.
Most parks use 1 of the 3... but... epcot uses 4.

The forth at epcot is called Reversed Forced Perspective.

So this is a 3 part question

The first part:

Does someone know all 3 Forced perspective ratios used by floors? For example:

1st Floor 100%
2nd floor 75%
3rd Floor 30% or


The second part:

Can you name the 4th Reversed Forced perspective ratio by floors? For example:

1st Floor 100%
2nd floor 150%
3rd Floor 250% or


And where & why it is used in Epcot?

I know one of the buildings in the World Showcase, but which one?

The 3rd part.

I mentioned there are 3 Forced perspective ratios used in Epcot. And only 1 used in the other parks. Where in epcot are the other 2 used (be specific)?

Can anyone tell me the ratios on this? I am new here and maybe it might be posted but I don't know how to look for it!

I believe you may be referring to the American Adventure usin Reversed Forced Perspective.  It's "show" required so much space that it would have dominated World Showcase, so while it is at least four stories tall, it looks like it is three (and a cupola).  It is also built further back from the lagoon than the other pavilions.
