A dark ride attraction inspired by Disney•Pixar’s Ratatouille will be added to the France Pavilion in World Showcase in time for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort in 2021. The attraction will expand the pavilion and open a new area past the area’s Eiffel Tower, Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald said during the announcement at the D23 Expo, and no mention was made of closing the existing Impressions de France film.
Similar to the 4-D attraction Ratatouille: The Adventure that opened at the Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris in 2014, guests will be able to shrink to Remy’s size and scurry to safety in a dazzling chase across a kitchen with the sights, sounds and smells of Gusteau’s legendary Parisian restaurant. The attraction will use mouse-shaped trackless ride vehicles, and 3-D projections.
Here’s the presentation from the D23 Expo:
