I would love if this starts a new tradition of birthday buttons

That is very cool. With all the October 1st openings, it would be cool to see more of this. Like SSE and LwtL 41st, WDWRR and the other MK originals 52. Things like that. It's a great little touch.

I was walking from Pandora to Everest today when I saw this (near park close, like around 6:30pm). Cool of the custodian CMs cleaning up there to do this on WDW's birthday (which shares it with Remy's!)..

To awaken this thread from its long slumber, Cast Members were wearing this neat little button for the ride’s second birthday! Props to the person behind these!

Those dividers definitely weren't there this past Friday when we road it.

Its' a nice little attraction that is perfect for Paris. I would have expected a better queue however.

When you're lucky that adds additional smells to the attraction - no upcharge

I was riding Soarin’ the other day and the person next to basically sitting in my lap.

Looking at my own hips that aren't where they were a few years ago, I support this move. Wait, did I just agree with something they're currently doing at Epcot? ?

…I wasn’t thinking of that (I swear!)

That's because the lower halves of so many Americans are too large to fit into one third of that seat.

It's been flying under the radar recently, but modifications are apparently being made to the RV's at Remy's Ratatouille Adventure at Epcot. Ride opened a little over a year ago. The seat dividers are being removed from the bench-style seats, presumably to allow more room for guests. Picture here of removal: This is what it looked like before, where two dividers seats 3 people per row:

Had the opportunity to ride the original Ratatouille in Walt Disney Studios during my trip to France. It's pretty much the exact same thing as the Epcot clone, as far as I can tell/remember. It was in both French/English, like most attractions in DLP/WDS. Some of the effects were kinda tame compared to the Epcot version. Like the tilting of the RV's was nonexistent on 3/4 RVs I rode in and the rumbles were "softer". I did a total of 4 rides in a short span, thanks to the single rider line (<5 mins waits!). The unload was the biggest difference, as this grants you a view of the attached sit-down restaurant. Epcot really should have gotten the same thing, tbh. I will note the RV's in WDS's version are in very rough shape. Scuff marks and paint missing, aka the usual. Plus as noted above, the tilting in some RV's are broken. Heat and water spray was working in their respective scenes. The courtyard at WDS where the ride sits in is beautiful, but I think I prefer Epcot's setup behind the France pavilion more, where it's treated as more as an alleyway leading to the ride. However, bonus points must be given to WDS as they have actual detailed facades everywhere as opposed to Epcot's painted flat facades behind the attraction and minimal actual facades. The stroller parking right at the entrance/queue kinda ruins the vibe, while Epcot has theirs hidden away near the Creperie. Overall, am glad I got to experience this version. It had many pluses and really no negatives. The negatives I did note are just ride defects that can be easily fixed when given time/maintenence. Also, am happy that I got multiple rerides with little to no wait, but in Orlando I only got one ride (at the time) because of the VQ system in place.
