It’s a recipe for excitement! Intriguing news is coming out of Walt Disney World that has us on our toes with mouse ears wide open. While we await the beginning of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary – “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” – on October 1, we’re finding ourselves eager get the 18-month long party started! While we’re thrilled with the Cinderella Castle décor and new nighttime spectacular called “Disney Enchantment” coming to Magic Kingdom, we are equally excited about what EPCOT is dishing out. Not only will we finally see the debut of EPCOT’s new nighttime spectacular, “Harmonious”, but we’re also going to have a chance to ride EPCOT’s newest attraction – Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. BUT… do we have to wait until October 1 to ride along with Remy? Maybe not! The President of Walt Disney World, Jeff Vahle, took to social media to share the intriguing news.
As shared via Jeff Vahle Instagram on July 30: “Walt Disney World Cast Members, we’re COOKING up some fun for you! Starting next month, you will have the opportunity to experience Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure before it officially opens to our Guests on October 1. More info will be posted on the HUB soon, so keep an eye out. And if you’re not a Cast Member, there may still be a way for you to see this attraction before it opens. More details to come!”
What do you think that means?! It sounds like some soft openings may be in the works Disney fans! We’d recommend everyone keep an eye on Disney news and the My Disney Experience App to see if a soft opening date(s) gets released. Currently, the Walt Disney World website notes: “In this 4D ride experience, join Chef Remy on a daring culinary caper that will captivate all your senses as you zip, dash and scurry through the bustling kitchen, dining room and walls of Gusteau’s famous Paris restaurant. C’est magnifique!” The opening date listed is still October 1, 2021. We’ll be sure to share any information we learn!
