Permits for Ratatouille Attraction & Expanded France Pavilion Reveal New Details of Epcot Project

A new round of permits have been filed for the upcoming Ratatouille attraction to be located at the France pavilion in Epcot.

This permit shows the expansive show building to be constructed on the expansion pad between Morocco and France. If you look back to our detailed analysis in June, you’ll see that most of the buildings we predicted would be relocated are indeed now shown in their new locations.

You’ll see in the lower right corner the new cast break building as well as relocated merchandise “sheds” located behind Morocco.

North of the new show building you’ll find the one existing entertainment trailer as well as the newly-relocated entertainment trailer.

What is most interesting in these new plans is the new area leading to the attraction, filled with new shopping and dining options.

The new path will follow the canal side of the existing pavilion, then curve along the back of the existing pavilion until it meets with the show building for Ratatouille. While we don’t know everything about this new street area, we do know there is a restroom facility and that one of the new food options will be a establishment selling crepes.

Stay tuned to WDW News Today as these plans slowly comes to fruition, and we’ll bring you updates as construction commences.

I love that they are building it all behind the existing pavilion so not changing the character of most of France. Not sure what it will end up being like but seems pretty low key as far as Ratatt-izing the whole pavilion (for those who have issues with IP at Epcot). I know many don’t agree but i like rides and countries with rides are just more interesting to me since i am not a big shopper or drinker and can only eat so much food on a given day.
