Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and the newly expanded France pavilion at EPCOT is opening soon on Oct. 1 and we received a first look!
Remy's Ratatouille Adventure is a family-friendly attraction that invites guests to shrink down to the size of Chef Remy on an exhilarating “4D” chase through Gusteau’s restaurant. Joining the attraction is La Crêperie de Paris, the new restaurant offering authentic French cuisine in both table- and quick-service options.
Remy's Ratatouille Adventure
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure's entrance is located at the end of the France pavilion’s new plaza and looks like a Parisian theater. You can't miss the classic marquee with nearly 200 lights.
After entering the theater, you will find yourself on the rooftops of Paris where Gusteau invites you to join Remy for a special meal. You then board colorful rat-shaped vehicles and then put on your 3D glasses to begin your race around the kitchen as you see everything from a “rat’s-eye view.”
The trackless vehicles travel in groups of three and move forward and backward while moving from one scene to the next. Depending on which vehicle you board, you may take a slightly different path through the attraction.
France Pavilion Expansion
The France expansion doubles the size of the existing pavilion, and guests begin their journey to this new area of the park with a stroll down a waterside pathway near the EPCOT International Gateway. The art nouveau-style archway welcomes you before rounding a corner and entering a French market street called Alleé des Marchands (“Alley of the Merchants”).
The focal point is the “Ratatouille”-inspired fountain where three-basin structure features rats holding bottles and flutes of champagne as water shoots out of the bottles toward the top basin. There Remy stands atop the fountain wearing his classic chef's hat and holding a cooking spoon.
La Crêperie de Paris
La Crêperie de Paris is a traditional creperie with a menu from renowned chef Jérôme Bocuse inspired by the Brittany region of France.
The table-service restaurant serves savory galettes and sweet dessert crepes, along with some of Brittany’s famous hard ciders. The restaurant also offers a prix fixe menu featuring a choice of soup or salad, one savory galette, one dessert crepe and a glass of hard cider, soda or juice.
Crêpes A Emporter at La Crêperie de Paris is a quick-service location at the front of the restaurant. The walk-up window serves three savory galettes, four sweet crepes, soft-serve ice cream and an assortment of ciders and wines.
