‘Ratatouille’ attraction, restaurant opening for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary

The culinary character inspired an expanded French pavilion at the theme park.

Francophiles get ready for a fresh taste of Paris at EPCOT this fall with a new attraction and restaurant dedicated to Disney and Pixar’s beloved little chef.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will open Oct. 1 in tandem with the epic Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary celebration.

“In this delicious new attraction, you’ll feel like you’ve shrunk to the size of Chef Remy as you scurry through Gusteau’s famous restaurant on a wild adventure for the whole family — no height requirement,” the team announced on the Disney Parks Blog. “Based on Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award-winning film, ‘Ratatouille,’ the experience will be part of a newly expanded France pavilion inside EPCOT.”

The new fanciful pavilion will transport guests to “Paris that feels straight out of the animated film,” the blog post said. “It’s easy to understand why little Remy fell so head-over-heels in love with the ‘city of lights.'”

The launch of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure also includes a new restaurant opening, La Crêperie de Paris, that will offer both table and quick-service options. The menu created by celebrity chef Jérôme Bocuse will honor traditional French cuisine with items like sweet crepes and savory buckwheat galettes, as well as authentic French hard cider.

“We’re looking forward to Remy joining us for The World’s Most Magical Celebration, an 18-month event that will feature new experiences at the four Walt Disney World theme parks and beyond, where shimmering EARidescent décor will appear as if by magic,” Jeremy Schoolfield, managing editor at Walt Disney World Resort Public Relations said in the release.

The Walt Disney Co. is the parent company of “Good Morning America” and ABC News.
