Remy's Ratatouille Adventure virtual queue quickly reaches morning capacity but afternoon slots remain available

EPCOT'S new Remy's Ratatouille Adventure is now officially open with a virtual queue only, and here is what is happening so far today.

The virtual queue opened at 7am this morning, with all boarding group allocations taken within 5 seconds. This is very similar to what we saw previously with Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. However, where things have differed on day one is that Remy's Ratatouille Adventure has not sold out the 1pm slots as of 2:40pm. The current estimated wait time via the virtual queue is 315 minutes.

Here is an overview of how the virtual queue works at Remy's Ratatouille Adventure.

Guests will be able to access the virtual queue system via the My Disney Experience app and check for an available boarding group starting at 7am on the day of their park reservation. As with Star Wars Rise of the Resistance when its virtual queue was in use, you will need to have park admission linked to your Disney account and have a Disney Park Pass reservation. If you are unable to join the morning virtual queue opportunity, you may check for an available boarding group starting at 1pm after you have entered the park.

The virtual queue means you will only be able to ride Remy's Ratatouille Adventure once per day, and it will not be part of Early Theme Park Entry for Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests.

Later in the year, when Disney Genie becomes available, guests will have the opportunity to purchase admission via the Lightning Lane entrance even if the virtual queue is full. Pricing has not been announced, but individual attraction pricing is expected to be between $4 and $24 per person, per ride.

Initially, Rat had 3 individual seats with dividers in between, but shortly after opening they removed the dividers and made it a front bench and a back bench. I’m not sure if they ever get up to 4 people (1 adult and 4 children for example) in the back, but they no longer have the capacity for single rider given it’s a bench with undefined seating (like MMRR). Alternatively, (and likely the more likely driver) too many Americans couldn’t fit between the dividers, causing delays and decreased guest satisfaction that exceeded any potential benefits from single-rider.

It was pictured in concept art. Single rider is pretty important for a 3-wide car

I was wondering if they had single rider as it still exists at DLP

Gotta sell those genies. They better not pull that with the new Test Track.

Interesting that it’s getting that high considering they axed single-rider at the 11th hour.

Not to bump an old thread, but we measured Remy's hourly capacity at rope-drop this morning at 2,151 guests per hour. That's pretty close to the estimated 2,200/hour we've heard elsewhere.

Why is Disney always responding right after Universal and not vice versa. Mmm

It was. Felt not as immersive and even more like you are just watching a movie during the big screen sections.

It’s usually due to projector or glass cleaning maintenance

Not alleged, they're running it as a test until March 9. It's a cost-cutting measure.

I know they've done this before in Paris due to technical issues, so I'm not sure I'd read too much into it.

saving expense from replacing and or cleaning the glasses all the time? wouldn't surprise me, cost cutting moves.

Universal allegedly downgraded King Kong from 3D to 2D as well. What's the trend here?

LittleBufordMar 04, 2024

This seems a bad move to me.
