First phase of the France pavilion expansion opens to guests
Posted: Monday January 18, 2021 10:40am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

EPCOT this morning welcomed the first guests into the new Ratatouille area - at least as far as the restrooms.

Guests are now able to walk along the street that leads into the new area.

Click on the video below for a walk-through of the new area.

The new bathrooms are open, which is partly due to the bathrooms in the nearby Morocco pavilion now being closed for refurbishment.


A large construction walls prevents guests from venturing any further into the new area.

Hopefully they continue until the launch, going 9/25-10/10 and would love to get on before the crowds.

I already had my preview… Nearly 3 years ago at WDSP. 😉 I’d like my kids to ride, though, they’ll enjoy it.

I feel like their goal is to give a “preview” to anyone possible so by October 1st it won’t be chaos.

If they have previews for certain groups, like DVC or AP holders, they have previously announced a registration date that you can sign up for a preview. Given it’s Epcot it shouldn’t be a problem to register and then book a park reservation for that day.

How do you get selected if you are a member of the preview group?

Me too…a week later. Anyone know how many people I could get in if it’s a DVC preview? We have 8 people in a 2 bedroom villa but only 4 of us are DVC owners.

Seems news is that there will be soft open opportunities for AP, DVC, etc… Any word on dates? I’m there in just over 2 weeks….
