Though Epcot Forever will run in 2019, in 2020, a new permanent nighttime spectacular named HarmonioUS will debut. This new show will be a celebration of Disney music, and will show how Disney music inspires people around the globe, and will feature large floating set pieces, custom-built LED panels, kites with special effects, choreographed moving fountains, lights, pyrotechnics, and lasers. Confirmed Disney IPs that will be featured in this new production include Coco, Hercules, and Moana. Moving forward, this will be the permanent replacement for IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth, and the infrastructure for this show is under construction as we speak.

Remy's Ratatouille Adventure, the new name for the Ratatouille: L'Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy ride which is being cloned for Epcot is now under construction and is set to open in Summer 2020. This Ratatouille-themed 3-D dark ride will use trackless technology to "shrink" guests down to the size of a rat, and is being constructed in an expansion pad behind the France pavilion. 

10. Crêperie hybrid restaurant (Summer 2020)

The most recently-announced addition to the France pavilion is a brand new unamed hybrid quick/table service restaurant that will feature the cuisine of celebrity chef Jérôme Bocuse, the mastermind behind the pavilion’s Chefs de France brasserie and its celebration of gourmet cuisine, Monsieur Paul. This new location will feature a menu inspired by the Brittany region of France, and will have savory crepes called galettes and sweet crepes. And though the France pavilion already has plenty of places to eat (this will be the fifth dining location in this pavilion), this new hybrid restaurant should be a nice addition to the lineup with a simple menu with familiar options. 

This new location will open in summer 2020, alongside the afroementioned Ratatouille attraction.
