The 2007 hit Pixar film “Ratatouille” is coming to EPCOT, and not just with a new dish at a restaurant or another plush toy, but a full ride at the France Pavilion.
The ride is heavily based on the Disneyland Paris attraction “Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy”, which opened in March 2013.
The Attraction is a dark ride where guests board a rat shaped vehicle and you, from the perspective of a rat, follow Remy on his journey through the Gusteau Kitchen. As you move the ride takes you from setting to setting with wall projections and massive sets while you try to avoid the kitchen staff at to not get exterminated or stepped on.
A new look from Walt Disney Imagineering shows that most of the outside has been completed, but no looks yet on the inside as they are still putting on the finishing touches before it opens in October.
WDW Imagineer offered this statement: “In this delicious new attraction, you’ll feel like you’ve shrunk to the size of Chef Remy as you scurry through Gusteau’s famous restaurant on a wild adventure for the whole family (no height requirement!). Based on Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award-winning “Ratatouille,” the experience will be part of a newly expanded France pavilion inside EPCOT that will also open Oct. 1.”
The attraction is being added to EPCOT in Florida seemingly as an initiative to eventually give more pavilions their own attraction as a Mary Poppins ride was scheduled to be added to the United Kingdom pavilion but was canceled amid the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic.
Are you looking forward to the new ride?
