PHOTOS: New City Facades and Scrim Appear at EPCOT’s France Pavilion Expansion (1/12/20)

Bonjour once again from EPCOT’s France pavilion! It has been a minute since we checked in on the work with the new expansion, which will include Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and La Crêperie de Paris. Let’s take a look and see what’s new.

First, as we come up on the expansion overhead from the Disney Skyliner, we can see that much of the concrete work toward the front is complete.

There is still some work to do with a few open dirt patches and plywood planks.

Further along on the exterior of the front of the building that will house Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, new brown scrim has gone up to hide work on the theming of the area.

More scrim remains on the section of building facade directly next to the ride entrance. Toward the top, a large section of scrim has recently been removed, revealing the painted sections of faux Haussmann-style buildings meant to round out the space and make it appear as though guests are in a busy, bustling Paris street.

The sides of the La Crêperie de Paris restaurant also got some of its own scrim in preparation for exterior theming.

The restroom has also made progress, with most of the roofing details added, some paint applied to the front of the building and concrete added to the ground.

This area and the new Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure ride are set to open this summer, and we just can’t wait to explore this new area and stuff our faces with crepes!
