Ratatouille aerial construction pictures - May 2018
Posted: Monday May 14, 2018 11:55am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Today we have a great set of aerial images of the Ratatouille construction site at Epcot's France pavilion.

Since going vertical less than a month ago, a lot fo progress has been made on the steel structure of the main ride building.

The ride, based on the popular attraction found at Disneyland Paris is still some way off from its Walt Disney World debut, with current estimates of a Spring 2020 opening.

The merch cart near Ratatouille has apparently reopened -

Well, new to WDW... What is it with maintenance at WDW that causes issues with attractions that are stable in other parks but have fits in WDW? Rat, RoTR, Splash, BTMRR. WDWRR....I could go on and on. One site used to track this stuff. His list got so large to the point he just threw up his hands and gave up.

Indeed, trackless is far from new.

Implying that Ratatouille was the first trackless ride is one of the many dubious presentations made in The Imagineering Story. The technology was developed for Aquatopia at Tokyo DisneySEA and first opened with Pooh’s Hunny Hunt at Tokyo Disneyland more than a decade before Ratatouille opened.

Le Pooh, non?

Apart from the fact it’s a clone of a DLP ride. Which I believe was Disneys first trackless ride.

They seem to be having a lot of problems with the trackless rides, which is especially annoying because they often don't add much to a ride. While MM and MMRR make good use of their trackless system, there is no reason for Rat to be trackless. As for RotR - its open to debate, but the problems with the system seem to me to heavily outweigh the advantages. Disney is infatuated with the trackless system at the moment, and I really don't see why. They require warehouse-size spaces in every show scene and dictate absolutely smooth floors - which may make sense in a star destroyer but are a lot less logical in an outdoor park or a kitchen. Trackless rides also dramatically limit the imagineers ability to control the viewer's line of site. In most cases, the old omnimover (or some version of Uni's Scoop) would make for better rides. But the relevant point is that omnimovers and the Scoop seem to function much, much more consistently.

Remy’s Union contract states he has to have a French work week

Interesting, its been nearly impossible, the crowds this week were just insane at the park, and it doesnt help that rat always seems to be down. Does paris have this same problem?? We tried twice this week and gave up, its down more than running.

They have no problem sitting parties of two with random people (happens to us all the time) but they don’t open the single rider line? Weird… staffing issue? Training issue?
