A new “Ratatouille” ride and a French restaurant are set to open at Walt Disney World Resort later this year, but don’t worry – humans will be preparing all the food.
Disney CEO Bob Chapek said the new ride, called “Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure,” will open in the expanded French pavilion section of Epcot at the Florida resort on Oct. 1.
The family-friendly ride will make guests feel like they’ve shrunk down to the size of Chef Remy the rat and that they’re scurrying through the restaurant from the 2007 animated movie, according to Disney.
