AT D23 EXPO 2017, DISNEY PARKS CHAIRMAN BOB CHAPEK ANNOUNCES NEW RATAOUILLE ATTRACTION COMING TO EPCOT -- Looking ahead to the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek announced exciting plans across Epcot to realize the original vision of the park while making it more timeless and relevant than ever before. Patterned after the number one family attraction at Disneyland Paris, Ratatouille will be added in an all-new space in the France pavilion in World Showcase at Epcot.

RUMOR: Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Ride Opening Date Moves Ahead of Schedule for Epcot

With all of the attractions announced at the D23 Expo 2017, we were not given any actual opening timelines or dates other than “before Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in 2021”. According to internal documents, the trackless Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride for Epcot is now a bit ahead of schedule.

Last year, we told you that Disney was aiming for a May 2020 opening for the ride. If sources are to be believed, the targeted opening date is now a tad earlier and set for April 2020 in the France pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase.

Of course, nothing is official until announced by the Walt Disney Company, but official, internal documents are stating the above as the project timeline.
