New Disney Rumor: Epcot’s New ‘Ratatouille’ Ride Moves Ahead of Schedule


WDW News Today have posted an intriguing rumor about the upcoming Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride coming to Epcot’s France Pavilion.

The plans for this attraction were announced at the D23 Expo in 2017 but we weren’t given much to go on other than it would be trackless, similar to the on in Disneyland Paris and would open before the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World.

WDWNT say that we might get it sooner than we thought as they have found internal documents that indicate it is ahead of schedule, by a month. A look at documents a few months ago gave them an estimated opening date, that is now a bit shorter.

Last year, we told you that Disney was aiming for a May 2020 opening for the ride. If sources are to be believed, the targeted opening date is now a tad earlier and set for April 2020 in the France pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase.–WDWNT

Disney has not made any official announcements regarding the opening, but I won’t be surprised if we don’t get official opening dates for the Ratatouille attraction and some others at D23 this summer!  They tend to announce a lot of things at that event.

Here’s a construction photo from last month. You can see it’s moving along nicely!

Across from this is where the new Skyliner Station will be, at the International Gateway. Recently they have taken the walls down and now there are just moveable shrubs blocking it off. The art on the front is very art nouveau and it’s absolutely gorgeous and blends in beautifully with the area.

I’ll just be happy when it opens! I’m looking forward to it this new attraction and the Skyliner that’s coming soon!

What do you think? Are you looking forward to these too? Comment and let us know!
