Standby line opens at Remy's Ratatouille Adventure
Posted: Monday January 10, 2022 11:!5am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Remy's Ratatouille Adventure opened its standby line for the first time this morning, with guests no longer needing to secure a spot in the virtual queue to ride.

Wait times peaked around 90 minutes around rope drop, with the queue extending to the International Gateway entrance.

Around an hour after opening, the line settled into an average of a 60-minute wait.

Beyond the initial surge at rope-drop, the queue itself has been contained within the courtyard, with the 90-minute wait seeing the line begin at the entrance archway.

Of course, the courtyard is packed, with lines snaking throughout the area. Crosswalks controlled by ropes are in operation to move guests from one side of the street to the main queue area.

Remy's Ratatouille Adventure was open this morning during Early Entry as a test but is not yet part of the official Early Entry attraction line-up.

If you are in the park for Early Entry, be sure to check My Disney Experience to see if Ratatouille is open, as it may not be announced.

Although the virtual queue is now gone, you can still purchase a Lighting Lane access to the ride for $9. Slots were sold out this morning shortly after the park opened.

That's actually my point. There were a couple of initial renderings of a movie focused pavilion for Future World. They were exploring new pavilion ideas. It was not nearly fleshed out as legend makes it seem. Namely because all of the concepts moved over to the new high priority studios park. So, it's not really accurate to think GMR (as we know it) was going to be in Future World.

Back in the day, there were artist concepts of The Great Movie Ride, located in EPCOT.....oh, get me some smelling salts !☺

poor planning looks like

Actually, the concepts were either focused on how films were created or the creative process around the artistry of film. So, it would be much more about film creation or film history. It would have been made to fit Future World's story, and there actually were concerns on whether it would fit - INSIDE the company, not in the fandom. So, I don't know that your assumption would reflect reality either then or now.

At some point that switched and MK and DHS became about rides with EPCOT and DAK being about experiences.

No. Not at all.

Can you imagine if a movie themed pavilion were announced for Future World today? I can already picture the gnashing of teeth and complaining about it... But since it was being considered in the 80's in the Epcot heyday, I can only assume that it obviously is a perfect fit and would have been embraced by all had it opened then. Probably would have been hyped as the next evolution of Epcot's celebration of human achievement or somesuch.

I read elsewhere that there is currently no single rider line open.

The indoor queue (once you pass the ticket booths and CMs) isn't that long. Iirc it's only like four switchbacks until you reach loading. Majority of the queue is right outside with the covered switchbacks.

The real question of importance: Did the Single Rider queue open today?

Why such a long queue if the wait time is only 40 minutes? Isn't there queue space inside?!

Epcot82Guy6 days ago

Oh totally. There was a long-standing belief that the pavilion was actually fully developed and then became the GMR and the inspiration for the whole of DHS. That's not historically accurate. But, the idea of a Movies/Movie Production attraction for Epcot in future world was certainly in the ether.

Not sure I would want to stand around in that congested area to ride a 3 minute attraction.
