While 2019 brought us Disney’s Skyliner, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and of course, Rise of the Resistance, we’re ready for 2020! That’s because Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will be opening this year and we can’t wait to “rat around” on this new Disney attraction!
Here’s the scoop on everything you need to know about this fabulous new ride coming to Walt Disney World!
Alright, friends! It’s time to dish out all the info we know at Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure so far! We’ll be trying not to include any spoilers here — rather just consider this a DFB amuse-bouche to whet the appetite and awaken your palette!
What is Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure?
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is a trackless 4D dark ride based on the 2007 Disney/Pixar animated film, Ratatouille. It will be a replica of Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy that opened in Disneyland Paris in 2014. Once you are “shrunk down” to the size of one of Remy’s vermin friends, you’ll scamper through Gusteau’s Restaraunt in a rat-shaped ride vehicle encountering various characters from the movie along with the sounds, sights and smells of this highly-acclaimed Parisian eatery. There will also be special water and heat effects — but we don’t want to ruin the surprise, so that’s all we’re gonna say about that!
Where Will It Be Located?
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is coming to France Pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. Construction has been underway on the new attraction’s show building at the back of the France pavilion for some time, located across from where the new International Gateway Skyliner Station is now open.
While we still don’t know the exact date Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is set to debut, we know the timeframe will be sometime in the summer of 2020!
Will there be FastPass and Single Rider?
At this moment, Disney World hasn’t confirmed if their new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will offer FastPasses or a separate Single Rider queue in addition to its Standby queue. However, Disneyland Paris’s version does offer both FastPasses and Single Rider options, so it looks somewhat promising that Disney World will do the same. Stay tuned and we’ll keep you updated as soon as we get more info!
How Long Is It?
The duration of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is about 5 minutes.
Is it Family-Friendly?
Yes. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will be a fun, thrilling ride for many adults and small children alike. Quick potential SPOILER sidenote to follow — One scene involves a chase from a meat cleaver-wielding Chef Skinner which might frighten some little kids, but we think the overall impression of the attraction promises to be of a more light-hearted and whimsical nature. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will be a delightful addition to Epcot’s World Showcase, and not-to-be missed in our book — right up there with Norway pavilion’s Frozen Ever After!
What Are the Height and Safety Requirements?
Disney hasn’t officially released any information regarding the Disney World version of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, but going off the details of Disneyland Paris’s website, guests may be any height to ride. Expectant mothers or guests who are sensitive to motion sickness are advised not to ride.
Is the Ride Wheelchair Accessible?
According to Disneyland Paris’s Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure’s website, yes, although it hasn’t been officially confirmed yet for the U.S. version. Disneyland Paris’s attraction has specially-adapted ride vehicles for accommodating ECVs and wheelchairs directly without transfer, but guests may also transfer from their wheelchair to standard ride vehicles.
