PHOTOS - A look at Remy's Ratatouille Adventure as construction work resumes

Remy's Ratatouille Adventure construction - July 29 2020

EPCOT's France Pavilion is once again a hive of activity as work resumes on Remy's Ratatouille Adventure in World Showcase.

Crews can be seen working on the exterior facades and landscaping.

There is still no word yet on an opening date, which has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 shutdown. The new ride would most likely have been open by now, but will now largely depend on when the remaining work can be completed, and Disney's plans on when is the best time to open a new attraction during a global pandemic.

It doesn’t bother me at all. I don’t see it matters unless their voice is muffled (in which case I suspect they’d re-record it). In years to come people will know exactly when the video was recorded, just like photos taken now.

Wish they’d do the videos without the masks on. They’re social distancing. I get why they don’t though. They probably don’t want people to think they can take pics wo it. In any case, I love when they release these behind the scenes videos!

I will disagree that the courtyard in Epcot looks grander and more impressive than the one at WDSP, from what I’ve seen of both in person (or at least from pictures and from the Skyliner, in Epcot’s case).

Anything that can disturb / push air around is considered a risk.

No, but feeling a wet mask isn't pleasant.

I've never ridden it pre-covid, but I rode it 4 separate times when it was a walk-on when the parks first re-opened and never got sprayed

You think the 4D effects on the ride could give you COVID?

These effects were never turned off on FOP. Each seat has its own personal air and water effects and there is nobody behind you.

They were back on for FOP last week. I made an error in judgement and rode it when the line looked to be short. It was not and didn't feel safe at all. Plus there was air blowing on my face the whole time and water mist hitting my face a few times on the ride. Eek

Yep. Besides, I already go my answer. But thanks for chiming in.

Eddie praised the documentary on LinkedIn. The technology was actually developed for Aquatopia but Pooh’s Hunny Hunt ended up opening first.

Imagine being Eddie Sotto, someone who helped design Hunny Hunt, hearing that and knowing you were in that same documentary.

Especially since it was the first trackless ride according to The Imagineering Story.

It’s “brand new” to WDW and how many people from the US really know about it? I’d say it’s more likely for international travelers to WDW (assuming they can travel due to COVID) who know more about it than domestic visitors.
