Thanks to an Annual Passholder preview, I was able to take my daughter and I to a preview of Epcot’s newest attraction, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. For the preview, you were able to pick a date and an hour to spend in the area where the attraction, a new restaurant, restrooms, a merchandise cart, and spectacular fountain reside. During the preview, pass holders were able to experience the attraction as many times as they could during their hour. My daughter and I rode the attraction twice during our hour.
Some highlights of the attraction:
The queue for the attraction is incredibly well themed. At one part of the queue, guests are atop the city on what looks like a rooftop with the Gusteau’s sign. Gusteau himself talks to guests touting Remy’s cooking skills. My daughter even noticed him winking at her.
The attraction runs seamlessly on a trackless ride system much like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and Rise of the Resistance. This leads to a smooth ride for guests in an adorable vehicle which resembles a rat.
Guests experience the attraction as a rat, twisting and turning through a restaurant, being swept under a table with a broom, splashed with water from a mop, and even riding on a serving cart.
I thoroughly enjoyed the attraction and found it to be adorable.
However, my young daughter did get scared at times on the attraction especially when the ride vehicle seemed to drop or the nefarious chef chased us. My daughter can tend to be a tad sensitive, therefore, I would recommend this ride for young children. I coaxed her to ride for a second time with me citing that she’d already been on it and knew what to expect.
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure was well worth the wait and is a great addition for the whole family for your next Epcot day. The attraction officially opened to guests on October 1, 2021 to celebrate Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary.
