Remy's Ratatouille Adventure construction - February 23 2020
Posted: Wednesday February 26, 2020 10:47am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Today we have a quick update from Epcot's France pavilion where work is moving at a brisk pace adding the finishing touches to the exterior facades and buildings.

With yesterday's announcement that Spaceship Earth will close on May 26 for a long refurbishment, it seems reasonable to suggest that Disney is expecting Remy's Ratatouille Adventure to be open to guests in May to provide much needed ride capacity for the park. Disney previously stated a summer 2020 opening.

I hope they get so many complaints when guests get turned away and told they are not allowed to wait in line to ride, that it changes sooner rather than later....and I agree you should have the freedom to wait in a line if you choose. The direction they are going with all this stuff is ruining it for so many, this is exactly what Disney wants though, to push people out because of the overcrowding problems, and sadly it will work because if you don't agree to let the app dictate to you what to do and pay for extras, Disney is showing you the door.... check out the rick steves radio show if you can from todays broadcast,,this was all stated loud and clear and theories behind it. It was very telling and just reaffirmed the direction they are taking.

i really dont think VQ will last long with this ride, it will be a standby / lightning lane within a year or two. Same with Web Slingers. Thats not to say the rides arent good, I really like WS and RAT looks to be a great addition to Epcot. Hopefully RotR gets its VQ removed in DL sometime soon because I really dislike VQ and would rather have a 5+ hour standby line oppourtunity than nothing.

It’s a visa related issue. Cultural reps have to wear their “national costume” as part of their visa which can’t be worn by domestic cast unless they are from that country originally. So World Showcase should be fine once cultural reps return. In the meantime though yes, it’s a lot of generic costumes in the countries as they can’t wear the national ones.

I get the feeling "temporary" will become permanent, which concerns me for the rest of WS costumes down the road.

France has new “temporary non cultural” costumes for Rat and merchandise shops consisting of black pants/vest/bow tie. Though IDF for some reason is still wearing flag shirts.

Yeah, a bit. In all, it felt like it moved a lot less than rise or runaway railway. The 3d really got in the way of me liking it more. The physical scenes were nice and I didn't like that the 3d glasses got in the way of my enjoying them more. Runaway railway accomplishes most (short of the cork gag) of the tricks without the use of 3d.

I take it based on the changed signage that single rider won't be available?

Had 3pm slot and got to ride 3 times in the span of about 20 minutes. The line for photopass was almost longer than the 3 rides.. at around 15 minutes. No wait for crepes at around 345. It seemed to be crowded at the top of the hour. As for the ride. Good fun. Only the left eye projector wasn't working in the outdoor scene before going "in". Didn't know the champagne scene could be different from ride to ride...

Yet we can’t get them to throw a parade in honor of their biggest resort’s 50th anniversary…

I’m sure. They just need to slow down and take a few weeks to get this set up right. Let the 50th start and then roll this out during the early November lull. Or barrel forward in a couple weeks….
