Construction is yet to begin on the new Ratatouille ride in Epcot's France Pavilion, but permits are now being filed for some of the early site work.

The aerial image above shot a few days ago shows the France Pavilion and the current state of the backstage area that will become home to the Ratatouille expansion.

The expansion pad is currently used to store the Food and Wine Festival kiosks, with a few of those still visible in the photo. Most are already out in World Showcase ahead of the upcoming festival.

Based on the popular attraction at the Walt Disney Studios park in Paris, Ratatouille is expect to open around the Spring of 2020.

The problem is, if boarding passes run out in seconds, I imagine it would be pretty tough to get a CM to snag you one.

I may be wrong, but when we were at DHS for ROTR in GE, there were Castmembers stationed for people who had problems on their phones and I believe there were also CM that were for people without smart phones... Want to say guest services make the effort to support those guests who don't have a smart phone (like they still offer the key to kingdom card & magic bands). Know before you go, cause timing is key.

I will be at Epcot on October 1st, so will get to witness first hand the likely crush of people converging in France for this. Assuming Disney will be implementing a similar reservation system through the MDE app for those wishing to expereince the new Attraction........which of course shuts me out since i don't have access to that ( no smart phone / digital toys that work ) No big deal, i have plenty of other things to keep me occupied at Epcot ( and elsewhere ) that day....but it shall be fun to watch it all take place in person. -

Or, rename the ride The Haunted Ratatouille-Adventure. Then, the dust can stay.

Ok how hard is it to hire people to portray rats?

Sirwalterraleigh8 days ago

They probably need to hire a few more hands to sweep the extra dust off the ride
