Though Remy's Ratatouille Adventure was originally scheduled to open in an expanded France pavilion in Summer 2020 work in the area ground to a halt after March, and has only recently ramped back up again. And though well-placed sources seemed to indicate that this attraction was facing a delay due to the COVID- 19 Pandemic, now it has been made official: this attraction will not open until sometime next year.
The announcement was made at this morning’s IAAPA virtual conference by Disney Parks Chairman Josh D’Amaro, and though we now know that this attraction will indeed open next year D’Amaro did not give an exact opening target.
Work on the attraction's exterior has been continuing at a moderate pace over the last few weeks, and while reports seem to indicate that the interior of this attraction is all but finished, many believe that Disney is delaying this attraction to take advantage of what many are hoping to be increased travel next year after the effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic have subsided and international restrictions related to the pandemic expire.
While it may be disappointing for 2020 visitors that this attraction will not open in 2020, you can check out our in-depth look at the Disneyland Paris version of this attraction here (which is essentially identical to the upcoming EPCOT version), and even check out a video ride-through of the ride!
