PHOTOS: Latest Progress on Epcot’s Ratatouille Attraction and Disney Skyliner Station

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Last week, Disney started to clear the way for the entrance to the new Ratatouille sub-land in the France pavilion at Epcot. Work is progressing nicely, as you will see below.

You can see the show building for the Ratatouille ride in the background, with a Skyliner pillar towards the water’s edge.

The pavilion’s Eiffel Tower is looking less and less convincing these days given its surroundings.


As of right now, the targeted opening date of the Ratatouille attraction at Epcot is May 2020.

Meanwhile, across the water, work continues on Epcot’s Skyliner station at International Gateway.

No opening date has been given for the Disney Skyliner transportation system as of yet.

  • No air Conditioning they have been there long enough to know temperatures can go into double digits, you will see people jumping to th h.g eir deaths on this ride. That is stupid with all the money they make they should gave included some type of air Conditioning. Sad very sad Disney is turning in his crave .

    • The temperature is pretty much ALWAYS in “Double Digits” (10-99 Degrees) It’s rarely in Triple digits though and I don’t think it’s ever been in Single digits in Orlando. And whats a “Crave”?

  • The new Skylines not having Air Conditioning is going to be very uncomfortable when the temperatures or in the high 90’s+. Guests are not going to be very happy.

  • For the record, I am NOT turning in my grave, but I would appreciate it if someone could locate my head in Frozen Storage.

  • Can’t wait for the Ratatouille ride, but those skyliner towers are an eye sore and ruin the sight lines of the France pavilion.

  • Surely Disney will have to expand international gateway to allow for the increase in guests arriving. I can’t see how those god awful gondolas have ever been given approval!
