Posted: Wednesday September 9, 2020 8:39am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The latest views of La Crêperie de Paris in EPCOT's France Pavilion show the exterior is nearing completion.

Part of the expansion that will also include Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, La Crêperie de Paris will become the pavilion's fifth dining location and will feature the cuisine of chef Jérôme Bocuse, who also runs the pavilion’s Chefs de France brasserie and Monsieur Paul.

With a menu inspired by the Brittany region of France, the new location will offer table service dining as well as a quick-service stop for savory crepes called galettes and sweet crepes.

Epcot's Paris does lack that authentic urine smell that lingers over real life Paris. Well you know what they say, "getting busy peeing or get busy dying"! ;)

Graffiti is saved for Avengers Campus. I did once see someone peeing in public during Food and Wine. There’s still time to add that streetmosphere.

True! To add even more authenticity, add in some police armed with automatic weapons as well.

They need some streetmosphere - hire some yellow vest protesters.

With people selling cheap knock-off souvenirs and pickpockets nearby! 😂

(Bob Iger clears throat) “This is…Authentically Disney and distinctly Applebee’s”

Well if you wanted authentically Parisian, it would be a storefront covered in graffiti.

Oh that looks wonderful, authentically Parisian!!! Wait… *Thinks back to visiting a few places in Paris* No, no it doesn’t. This is more of the bland generic “modern” design that has infected Disney these days like … a bad disease that you can’t get rid of (keeping it family friendly). Minimal effort, maximum profit. #ThanksBobs

Mickey reads our feedback here too.

Ok I’ve changed my mind, it looks rushed and although it looks nice, sticks out from the rest of works showcase with its sterile design. Perhaps because WSC hasn’t had any new updates for so long it sticks out more while being surrounded by an almost 40 year old theme park. I think it was also added late at a request by the third party that operates the food services. All of that coupled with Covid possibly restricting budgets we get this. While nice looking, it feels off and the pavilion deserves better. I’ve said this in many threads, but it’s worth emailing GR about if you’re not happy. Yes you’ll get the “thanks for being such a great fan” standard letter back, but your feedback does go to the park’s executive leadership team. The amount of time we spend on here discussing these things on here we could take a moment to send our thoughts to the mouse himself.

No, I know. I wasn't suggesting they'd actually done that. I was merely saying that's the quality level -- not necessarily build quality but design/theme quality.

It's weird because the materials feel like they're straight out of a WDW restroom, which often has a similar brown-and-tan palette with natural stone ceramics. It's as if they couldn't shake what the building was originally supposed to be. In an odd reversal, some of the materials in the expansion restrooms would actually work better in the crêperie to help brighten the space, like the embossed wallpaper.

I think, from video, the rest of the Rat expansion, the outside, actually looks pretty awesome. I bet Mary Poppins would have been cool.
