According to several sources, the permit filed with Orange County is for “Project MI” with an address that places it at the same location as the France pavilion. This initial permit is for core a shell work which includes mechanical, electrical, plumbing, structural as well as concrete and metal work.
Disney has not officially commented on the permits as of yet, but the location is consistent with the new Ratatouille ride showcased during this year’s D23 convention in California. Disneyland Paris already has a Ratatouille attraction where the famous Chef Remy (who is also a rat) shows off his knack for cooking. Dubbed Ratatouille: The Adventure, the ride offers a 4D experience following Remy and friends who have cooked up a delicious storm. But it’s not long before the rats are discovered by Chef Skinner who chases visitors through the sights sounds and smells of Gusteau’s famous Parisian restaurant.
Many Disney-insiders are expecting the Epcot ride to be a close match to the one in Disneyland Paris.
There’s no news yet as to when this new attraction is expected to open to the general public. However, Disney has already announced that the attraction would one of the new offerings up and running by the time Disney begins its 50th-anniversary celebrations in 2021. We here at Chip and Co. wouldn’t be surprised if we see it a bit sooner.
This ride joins an already impressive list of new lands and attractions slated to hit the theme parks in the years ahead. This includes Toy Story Land, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway at Hollywood Studios as well as a new Guardians of the Galaxy coaster at Epcot and a Tron Coaster slated for the Magic Kingdom.
Keep following along with Chip and Co. for the latest news regarding all of the exciting attractions coming to Disney over the next few years.
