Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary: Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride opens at Epcot

Remy's Ratatouille Adventure is the newest attraction at Epcot park, opening in time for the park's 50th anniversary celebration.

Walt Disney World unveils a brand new ride just in time for the park’s 50th anniversary celebration.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is the newest attraction at Epcot park, and the ride brings the Disney Pixar film to life in an amazing 4-D experience.

We were lucky enough to get a special preview of the ride before it opens to the public.

It’s a front-row seat to all the sights, sounds and even smells, just like in the movie.

The engineering team says a special trackless ride system is part of the magic that makes each twist and turn feel real.

The grand opening for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is set for Oct. 1, 2021, at EPCOT at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The family-friendly attraction makes guests feel as if they shrink to the size of Chef Remy as they scurry through Gusteau’s restaurant. It will open in an expanded section of the park’s France pavilion and will open as part of the 50th anniversary celebration for Walt Disney World. (Matt Stroshane, photographer)

“One of my favorite things is how our ride engineering team was able to work on the vehicles and make those feel part of the overall 4-D experience,” said Sarah Ramos, Imagineering project manager. “You can feel the tilts. You can feel the scampering. You really feel like you’re a rat running alongside chef Remy.”

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is part of Epcot park’s newly-expanded France pavilion inspired by the film.

You can get a chance to experience this ride and all the fun at Disney during the 50th anniversary celebration.
