Today Josh D’Amaro, Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products Chairman, announced that the upcoming Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure attraction, located in EPCOT’s France Pavilion in the World Showcase, will be opening in 2021.
D’Amaro is taking part in the IAAPA Expo and this bit of information was announced in the keynote presentation. I’m sure we will get more information from the upcoming ‘D23 Fantastic Worlds Celebration Virtual Event’, running from November 16-20.
There will be several panels during the event including one on Thursday, November 19th called “EPCOT: The Magic of Possibility.” Considering they have a lot of cancelled projects and a big hole from tearing old buildings down, they need some “magic of possibility” right now.
Here’s what that the panel description says:
“Premiering at 3 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. ET on Thursday, November 19, host and Walt Disney World Ambassador, Marilyn West, is joined by Zach Riddley, Imagineering Portfolio Executive for Walt Disney World Resort and Melissa Valiquette, Vice President of EPCOT as they share about the Magic of Possibility at EPCOT and how this park is transforming today and building toward the future. You’ll also hear from Pixar’s Roger Gould and Harley Jessup along with Tom Fitzgerald from Walt Disney Imagineering about the making of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and what it takes to bring this animated favorite to life in the France pavilion.”
Stay tuned as more information becomes available.
