    Ratatouille The Adventure coming to Epcot?

    Rumor has it the main attraction to Disneyland Paris' upcoming Ratatouille expansion could be coming stateside where it will find a place to scurry around World Showcase in the France pavilion.

    Normally I would groan at the idea of WDW getting another replicate attraction, but it's something new for Epcot which is hurting for attention. Also it's a copy of an attraction from a part of the world I would probably never make it too. So to a lot of Americans it may as well be an original creation.

    What do you guys think?

    Re: Ratatouille The Adventure coming to Epcot?

    Epcot desperately NEEDS attention...but then again so does DHS, but that's off topic. I'm OK with bringing in a replicate attraction, especially one from over seas. It's not like I'm going to ever go to EuroDisney (how's that for a throwback?).

    BUT (you knew that was coming) World Showcase can survive fine without Ratatouille. There are other areas that have been neglected. Future World comes to mind or even Innoventions.

    Yeah I agree about future world needing attention over WS, but at this point any attention is better than none. And DHS will have its day soon enough I'm sure.

    You are right. Any attention is better then none BUT I feel management would have been better served repairing the broken stuff instead of bringing in Avatar at AK.

    Bring Remmy in though. I loved that movie.

    Oh for sure. Avatar and AK are a completely different animal though (pun intended).

    Re: Ratatouille The Adventure coming to Epcot?

    I agree with most of you guys. I am okay with a replicate attraction, especially if it is from somewhere I will never get to (IE anywhere but Disneyland, though I would be okay with Carsland coming to DHS just because it needs SOMETHING new. I LOVE Ratatoille, and I think it would really fit in with Epcot and would help reintroduce characters into the park, especially with Remy just having left Les Chefs De France.

    Re: Ratatouille The Adventure coming to Epcot?

    I heard on a podcast today with Jim Hill (so take it for what it's worth), that Disney is wanting to keep their new rides exclusive for at least 5 years to entice people to visit other parks (makes sense).

    So that would mean even though Tom Fitzgerald, who was in charge of Ratatoullie The Adventure, is in charge of Epcot now he wouldn't be able to port the ride over until at least 2019.

    le sigh.

    You mean we need another new attraction in France besides L'Artisan des Glaces?
