The 4D interactive ride called “Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure” was already a success in Disneyland Paris, and since the same experience is coming to Disney Guests at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT,  the World Showcase’s France has gotten an update to make room for the apron-toting rat and his attraction. Opening day is October 1st, in line with Disney World’s 50th Anniversary celebration, and Joe Vitale (a Senior Production Designer from the Imagineering team who spearheaded the expansion of EPCOT’s France) highlighted several details that Guests will notice in the architecture of Ratatouille’s neighborhood.

The stomping grounds for Ratatouille’s (tiny) paws can be found just past La Crêperie de Paris, the new Brittany-inspired restaurant, and Disney visitors will instantly notice that the intrepid rodent’s neighborhood bears a slightly more “whimsical” and less realistic version of France’s capital. Brighter colors and romantic details will add to the ambiance! Keep an eye out for an engraved manhole cover near the courtyard’s fountain: the engraving features Ratatouille on his original journey through the Parisian sewers!

Wine connoisseurs will enjoy perusing the wine bottles in a storefront near the ride; the wine brand is named after Anton Ego, the food critic from the Disney and Pixar film, while the bottles’ labels feature significant years from the making of “Ratatouille”. Disney Guests can also enjoy taking photos with the scooter and motorbike that belonged to Chef Skinner and Chef Colette, two other characters from the movie.
