With the heightened anticipation of the latest ride set to open to the general public in just a few weeks time, it seems Remy may have met his match!
Remy’s Rattatouille Adventure isn’t a new ride to the Disney parks however, it’s new to the US. Disneyland Paris was the first to receive the ride a few years ago and it has been quite a popular attraction since it’s installment there. Here’s a bit about what you can expect for the storyline with Remy:
“Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure invites guests into the flavorful world of Disney and Pixar’s Academy Award®-winning “Ratatouille,” where they will feel as if they shrink to the size of Chef Remy and scurry through Gusteau’s famous restaurant. Guests will find Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure in a newly expanded area of the park’s France pavilion, where the real is made fantastic in a reimagining of Paris inspired by the film.” (source: comicbook.com/Disney)
Guests with DVC and passholder previews have been fawning over catching a glimpse of the latest expansion for the France pavilion in EPCOT and with as gorgeous as it is, who could blame them? Soon after the first few days worth of back to back hours of rides, the first of what we hope won’t be a trend has finally become a reality. Reports filed in about two ride vehicles that had collided with each other, and as a result halted guests from boarding with no immediate understanding of how long the delay would be.
Fortunately, guests were only held up for around 45 minutes before cast members received the all clear to continue boarding new guests for their spin around with Remy.
This doesn’t appear to be the only technical difficulty that the ride has suffered so far though. Another previewer reported that the screen where they were viewing the rats popping open a bottle to send the ride vehicle backwards very quickly had a longer than normal delay before their ride vehicle was projected back as it should have been.
In any case, we’re so glad to see that previews are back up and running and can’t wait to grab our virtual boarding passes to ride with the rest of the EPCOT guests starting October 1st.
