PHOTOS: Construction of France Pavilion Expansion and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Continues at EPCOT

While work on a number of projects around Walt Disney World has been halted since the parks closed on March 16th due to COVID-19 concerns, a number have since resumed, and of the attractions currently being built none are closer to completion than Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, part of the France Pavilion expansion.

Today, we’re taking a look at the site of the expansion as it grows ever closer to completion — and hopefully a grand opening.

While not much has changed at the entryway to the new area from a construction standpoint, we did see the Ratatouille Metro-style sign removed and replaced earlier this week.

Further, into the expansion, we can see that some landscaping remains to be completed, though smaller details like benches are now lining the Parisian street.

At the crossroads between this entrance path and the street leading to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, several pieces of construction equipment still linger as further details are added to facades and exteriors of actual buildings.

One such building will become home to La Creperie de Paris. Additional theming elements and detail are being added to the expansion’s signature (and only) eatery, slowly giving it a more authentic French appearance.

Turning our sights to the pathway which leads to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, trees have long been installed amongst the completed groundwork, but additional details continue to be added to buildings on either side.

At the end of this walkway, Remy’s Courtyard, which contains the signature fountain, has been receiving the most attention as of late. Balcony railings have been added recently, as well as the themed gates off to the side. We can also see roof work isn’t quite complete on the overhang to the right of the future entrance to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure.

Finally, the exterior queue space for the attraction is pretty far along, but with some railings yet to be installed and landscaping totally missing, this area still has some progress to be made.

Are you looking forward to the potential 2020 opening of the France Pavilion Expansion and Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure? Or are you more excited about La Creperie de Paris than the ride itself? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

I would love to ride this new attraction but cannot get excited for the opportunity until I know if it’s open by October 3 when I arrive.
