But the experience of being on a broken Disney Parks ride isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. For AJ (@citrusswirled on TikTok), a fifteen-minute breakdown of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at EPCOT devolved into a tense, anxiety-inducing nightmare:
There are worse rides to get stuck in, for sure, but this was a bit stressful! #disneyworld #epcot #remysratatouilleadventure #disney #wdw
AJ shared a video of where their rat-shaped ride vehicle was stuck on the ride, and it’s scary to even watch from home. The France Pavilion attraction stopped as they approached the iconic champagne scene, where Remy and his friends tried to use a fork to open a carbonated bottle. When the ride operates correctly, the cork pops, and a burst of water and air hits Guests in the face.

While being stuck right before a jump scare was “stressful,” AJ said it was a positive experience. “It was cool to get to see all the details that we might have missed- like being able to put my phone up to the 3D glasses for this shot!”
