We have been long awaiting the official opening of the expanded area of the France pavilion in EPCOT, and now the area that houses Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and La Crêperie de Paris is FINALLY open!
We’ve already shared a FULL review of La Crêperie de Paris’ table service option, a full review of the quick service crêpe situation in this area, and a look at Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure itself, as well as a peek at the Ratatouille merchandise. Now, the NEW Ratatouille merchandise has become available for everyone to snag and we’re going through ALL the details you need to know right here!
During our previews of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and the expanded area of the France pavilion, we were able to spot all kinds of adorable Ratatouille-themed merchandise being sold at a green kiosk within the expanded area.
We expect that this kiosk will likely be utilized in the future to sell the merchandise themed to this area.
Today, however, this particular merchandise kiosk was closed. Instead of heading into the expanded France pavilion to grab the new Ratatouille merchandise, guests were being directed to the World Showplace building, which is located between the Canada and United Kingdom pavilions.
This arrangement could have been set up due to the large number of expected guests as it is the opening day for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and the start of the 50th Anniversary celebration. This set-up could continue for a period of time though, so during your visit you’ll want to check and see whether Ratatouille merchandise is being sold at the kiosk in the expansion area or in World Showplace.
There was quite the line of guests waiting to grab Ratatouille merchandise inside World Showplace. If you’ve got your eye on a cheese necklace or a remote-controlled mouse, be aware that you’ll likely have to do some waiting. Once we got inside World Showplace, we were able to check out all of the new Ratatouille merchandise.
While we didn’t go inside ourselves, we were able to look at a list of items that will be available, as shown to us by a wonderful Disney World Cast Member. The items you’ll find inside include the Remy Bump and Go Toys that are designed to look like the attraction vehicles ($14.99)…
…a WEARABLE Remy Remote-controlled Buddy ($34.99) (he can crawl all over you and it’s kind of awesome and also terrifying)…
…an Emile Remote-controlled Buddy ($34.99)…
…Remy and Emile Cheese Plushes ($24.99)…
…and more (including a cheese glow necklace — a must for cheese lovers!).
Here’s a look at the items that are set to be available in World Showplace at the moment.
If you’re a big Ratatouille fan or just love Disney merchandise, be sure to look for these new items during your next trip to the park. Stay tuned for more Disney news, photos, and updates!
