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.

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?

This seems a bad move to me.
