Located within the recently expanded France pavilion at Disney’s EPCOT, the iconic theme park has begun welcoming cast members, Disney Vacation Club members, and annual pass holders to preview Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. This ride is a part of Walt Disney World’s multi-year plan to add more attractions and favorite Disney stories to its EPCOT campus.
After more than a year of delays due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will open its doors to all guests on October 1, 2021, and will be included in the park’s 50th-anniversary celebrations.
Inspired by the beloved ride at Disneyland Paris, guests will follow Remy from Disney’s Pixar film Ratatouille. Remy will guide guests through Paris and his restaurant while he avoids being caught by the restaurant’s head chef, Skinner.
Thanks to Disney’s Imagineering team, no stone is left unturned when it comes to all the little details that make this film and ride special. This multi-sensory ride has been designed to truly immerse guests in Remy’s experience from start to finish.
The oversized props and the use of screens will “shrink” guests to Remy’s size and travel alongside him as he makes his way throughout the city. Throughout the story, riders will experience changes in temperature, the mist of a popping champagne bottle, and more. Additionally, the characters speak a mix of English and French to create an even deeper connection between the ride and the new France pavilion.
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure uses some of the same trackless ride system technology as other rides like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance attractions. However, the Imagineering team has adjusted the vehicle to be positioned on a stand so it can tilt and spin as they travel through the various scenes.
Whether guests wish to explore the new twice-as-big France pavilion before or after they hang out with Remy, they will experience a seamless transition from the existing pavilion to the expansion.
The expansion consists of a more dreamy and animated design that reflects the art style of Ratatouille. Not only is this new style noted for its beautiful color palette and imperfect lines, but visitors will also find nods to the film- from the manhole covers to the street names.
If these changes weren’t enough, there will also be a new dining option available. La Crêperie de Paris is a new restaurant offering authentic French cuisine and a menu created by celebrity chef, Jérôme Bocuse. It will offer both table and quick-service food options.
