While most of our attention at Epcot has been focused on the demolition of the center of Future World, the expansion of the France pavilion continues to move forward. The addition of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will add a new courtyard to the pavilion that will contain the attraction’s entrance, a new creperie restaurant and a fun fountain themed to – you guessed it – Ratatouille.
Let’s take a look at the latest developments on the France expansion that’s expected to open in Summer 2020.
First, an arch gateway that will serve as the entrance to the new area has been added to the side of the France pavilion.

Next, we can see that theming elements have been added to the facades that surround the new courtyard.
And a slightly closer look at the new fountain.
Summarized, things are really coming along at France in World Showcase. There’s still quite a bit of work that needs to be done before everything is ready for guests, but the progress made over the last couple months indicates things are getting closer to wrapping up.
Once completed, the France pavilion will hold a brand new attraction, a new restaurant and the new courtyard space. That’s in addition to the multiple restaurants, shops and theatre space that already call the pavilion home. The France pavilion is already one of the most popular at Epcot and should only surge in popularity once this project is completed.
While we don’t have a specific opening date yet, we know Disney aims to have the ride and area ready for a Summer 2020 opening.
