PHOTOS: Say ‘Bonjour!’ as Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and France Pavilion Expansion Officially Open at EPCOT

Though many guests already got to experience Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure during previews, the attraction and the France Pavilion expansion didn’t officially open at EPCOT until today, October 1. The grand opening also marks the launch of the ride’s virtual queue.

Though difficult to see during the day, there were twinkling lights in the bushes leading to the Ratatouille expansion entrance.

You may remember there were several updates to the Ratatouille sign last year before any part of the expansion opened.

The signs were first installed a year ago, but changes to Walt Disney World’s queue system have since been announced. The righthand sign now reads “virtual queue” instead of “standby.”

The center sign originally read “FastPass+” but has been covered up for now.
