One thing that many Disney fans are excited to see in the upcoming weeks is Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, which will be opening at Walt Disney World Resort in the France pavilion of EPCOT on October 1.
The attraction has been pushed back in terms of a grand opening for more than one year now, so Guests have been waiting for quite some time. Now, Disney decided to open the attraction as another new offering for the 50th anniversary celebrations. Although the attraction is not yet fully open to the public, Cast Member previews have already commenced, and now, Annual Passholder previews are underway.
Annual Passholders who could make a reservation to ride Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure have been able to enter the new France pavilion expansion and ride the attraction, but there have been some hiccups. This past Saturday, one of our editors went to ride the attraction and could not hop on at the reservation time since the attraction kept breaking down. The breakdowns occurred for a few hours, at which point they decided to head on out of the Park.
Others who had a Saturday afternoon reservation for the attraction were seemingly in the same boat as many took to social media to discuss the constant breakdowns in the attraction and the hours of waiting. Instagram user Serena (@livingbydisney) was posting to her story to share the news on the same day, as well as many others. Others have also taken to Twitter to show how the trackless ride has been stalling during different sections of the ride, causing Guests to see the same screens repeat on the screen in front of them over and over.
The attraction was back in action in the evening, and Guests riding seemed to find some good luck! Tradzak (@tradzak) posted that they were able to ride the attraction three times!
We rode Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure three times tonight!
That being said, Disney Baby Chick (@disneybabychick) was able to ride twice in the early afternoon!
Move over Emily, Remy has officially arrived in Paris! 🇫🇷🧀🐭
The passholder squeak preview for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure was everything!!! 🥰 We went Saturday from 12pm-1pm and got to ride twice!!! 🙌 They do ask for confirmation number and scan your magic band to ensure you have a preview linked. They had fun merch and the new crepes place was open. 😋 I can’t wait to go back and try one next trip. When this ride opens October 1st, the line with be a virtual queue like Rise of the Resistance. There will be 2 chances to snag one (7am & 1pm). May the odds be ever in your favor!
As we mentioned, the attraction is currently undergoing Annual Pass previews and will open on October 1. There is no mention of a soft opening at the moment, but we have seen it happen in the past. However, with the attraction being a virtual queue, I personally do not expect to see Disney begin that process until the attraction’s opening date.
