Disneyland Paris Announces ‘Ratatouille’ Attraction, Update to ‘Disney Dreams’
Last year, we let you know that Disneyland Paris was beginning work on a brand-new attraction based on the Pixar film Ratatouille. This week, Disney finally officially confirmed the new attraction, which is set to open in Disneyland Resort Paris’ Walt Disney Studios Park in 2014.
The new Ratatouille attraction will tell the story of the popular Pixar film, which focuses on Remy, a rat with aspirations of becoming a gourmet chef in Paris. While few details about the new attraction are currently known, it is reported that the ride will be a “dark ride” and travel through different scenes in the film. About the new attraction, President & CEO of Euro Disney Phillipe Glass commented:
“By developing this new ‘Ratatouille’ attraction, we continue to ensure our guests can experience their favorite Disney stories in memorable ways that only Disney can provide. The theme, which is very français, is a tribute to the capital and the unforgettable characters that make ‘Ratatouille’ the ideal choice for an attraction that fits perfectly at Disneyland Paris.”
In addition to this exciting new attraction, a few other new updates were announced for Disneyland Paris’ more immediate future this week as well. Disneyland Paris has been celebrating its 20th Anniversary since last spring, and it has now been announced that the celebration will be extended through September 30, 2013. As part of the extended celebration, the park’s spectacular new nighttime show “Disney Dreams!” will be getting an update, with new sequences from The Lion King and Brave added to this already-breathtaking show. In addition, guests will soon be able to enjoy the nighttime spectacular with special new “Light’Ears,” which, like the “Glow with the Show” ears that recently made their debut in the American Disney parks, will light up and change colors in synchronization with the lights and music of Disney Dreams.
