While most of our attention has been on the construction over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, things continue to progress on the Ratatouille attraction at Epcot.
New photos show that facade work is well underway to transform the rear of the France pavilion into a guest area. Guests will use this new area to access Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure when it opens in 2020 or 2021.
The facade work appears to be adding windows and a sloping roof to what was formerly a flat wall on the France pavilion. The new theming elements are a welcome addition now that the area will be fully accessible to guests, and now that it is clearly visible by guests using the International Gateway following some land clearing for the Disney Skyliner.
Earlier aerial photos show another look at the preliminary stages of the facade work as well as the large green building that will house the ride.

Once completed, the France pavilion will arguably be the pavilion with the most depth in all of World Showcase. Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure and the new crepe restaurant will load the pavilion with four total food options / locations, one feature attraction, rotating films in Palais du Cinema (including a Beauty and the Beast sing-a-long) and some outstanding streetmosphere.
We’ll provide additional updates on the France pavilion’s transformation in the near future.
