PHOTOS: Inspiration Behind Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Exterior Queue Revealed by Walt Disney Imagineer
Walt Disney Imagineer Zach Riddley has shared some of the inspiration for the exterior queue of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, alongside photos of the structure. Though the ride will not open to all guests until October 1, Cast Members are currently previewing the ride.
Here’s what Riddley had to say about the exterior queue’s design:
“Our design team took inspiration from Parisian architectural history to create new structures that define this neighborhood surrounding the attraction.

Les Halles (The Halls translated into English) was a grand fresh food market in the center of Paris with a legacy the stretches back to the eleventh century! The most famous architectural design of this market that inspired our team dates to the 1850s – an iconic glass and iron structure known for its light and airy structural system, ornate details, and arched bays – in all in a classic green color seen on many everyday structures throughout Paris. Les Halles was relocated as the former market center gave way to a major urban railway hub Châtelet–Les Halles, for those of you familiar with the Paris Metro[.]
The 1850s style serves as a perfect design for our exterior queue, complementing the nearby Ratatouille-instilled fountain and the theater facade that serves as our attraction entrance.”
“And fans of all the tiniest details can find paw prints left in the pavement from our rat friends ready to take us on une aventure d’une vie!”
