Today during a press presentation at Disneyland Paris more details surrounding the new Ratatouille-themed ride and land (appropriately named La Place de Remy) were released. Previously, we had reported on the name of the ride as well as speculation that the ride vehicles would be on a new innovative trackless system, but now we have a lot of new information.
While the Disney Imagineers work tirelessly to keep surprising guests it was interesting to hear how much collaboration between Disney and Pixar was done to make La Place de Remy 100% authentic to the original film.
“[This is] by far the most advanced and sophisticated thing we’ve ever done from a ride integration standpoint. It will offer guests a totally immersive experience into a Disney•Pixar adventure”.Joe Schott, Senior Vice President & Chief Operating Principal
The presentation also gave a quick mention surrounding the Ratatouille-themed restaurant. This new restaurant will no doubt be yet another crowning achievement in Disney Imagineering as guests will be transported to feel like they are rat-sized as they dine on saucer cups once they step inside (as pictured above).
All of these exciting new details surrounding La Place de Remy have us wondering if perhaps there will be a Colette, Linguini, or even a Chef Skinner meet and greet area. We also think that a great addition to the land would be the Health Inspector’s car parked near the Ratatouille ride or near the restaurant. There are so many great ideas we could come up and we’re sure you have some ideas too – be sure to share your thoughts with us and other Pixar fans on the Pixar Post Forum.

Man do I wish this was coming to the states…stinks that II won't be able to experience this achievement! It looks absolutely fantastic and look forward to hearing more about it and watch people attend on youtube after it's completed haha. Thanks for this update guys! I wouldn't have heard the news otherwise.
I know, that would be great…and such a classy looking area for the parks as well. Obviously the dining experience ties in perfectly so it just works! Looks like you'll need to take a Euro Disney Cruise!
Hmmmmm….not a bad idea 😉
Awesome! This looks absolutely incredible, one of the Disney Parks finest achievements! To bad I won't be able to go. :(As always, thanks T.J. and Julie!
Looksamazing! Makes me happy to live in Europe! Ratatouille is my favorite Pixarmovie and I’m visiting DLRP Summer 2014 and begin 2015, so I can’t wait to experiencethis myself. I remember seeing Remy on the benches in this area and Augustegusteau’s head above a little tunnel that separates Toy Story land andRatatouille land. Super pumped!
Wow, that will be great that you can experience it firsthand. We can't wait to hear what you think!
