Remy is making his signature dish, Ratatouille. Where does a pint-sized chef shop for ingredients? He travels the countries of Disney’s World Showcase at the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival to collect all the tasty trimmings for his cooking pot, and you’re invited to join the scavenger hunt.
On our last trip to Walt Disney World, we decided to accept the Hide and Squeak Challenge and locate Remy at all 12 of his ingredient stops. We could have purchased an official map that included all of Remy’s stops ($7.95 plus tax), plus ingredients stickers. But, we decided to be a bit rebellious and trust our instincts and our investment in higher education to find Remy. It took us three trips to Epcot, and assistance from a seven-year-old guest who had already completed the challenge, to locate Remy. In the end, we did find all of his hiding places, but we were so excited that we forgot to capture an image at one of Remy’s perches. AND, now we find out that if we had purchased the map and applied all the ingredients stickers, we would have received an exclusive pin. All we have to say is—RATS!
Seriously, we had a great time playing this challenge. We recall a similar game during a past Epcot Flower & Garden Festival that involved locating 28 trolls in the gardens at the Norway pavilion. Does anyone remember that?
