Disney Files Permits for Ratatouille Attraction at Epcot in Walt Disney World

We previously announced that Disney confirmed a new Ratatouille themed attraction to be added to the France pavilion at Epcot’s World Showcase in Walt Disney World.  The new attraction is expected to be a ride that will either be the same a similar to the trackless Ratatouille: The Adventure attraction located in Disneyland Paris.  We have learned today that Disney has finally filed permits to begin the work to develop the attraction.  The attraction will be located in the empty area that is located between France and Morocco as well as some of the space that is behind the current boundaries of the France pavilion.  This was an area that was originally intended to be used as a possible country addition to all of the World Showcase, but it looks like it will instead be used to expand the France pavilion with the new attraction.


The area is currently expected to be around 5.7 acres.  Of this space 1.1 acres are paved, 0.3 acres have buildings and trailers on it and 4.3 acres are landscaping and undeveloped areas.  The space will be reconfigured and developed to meet the needs for the overall plan for the attraction.  We expect that it is likely that a gift shop and/or other stands will accompany the attraction once it is in place.  This attraction is much anticipated as many guests feel that the World Showcase needs another attraction.

What do you all think about the planned Ratatouille attraction?

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
