Ratatouille: The Adventure Grand Opening LIVE Reports - Day 3 Roundup

Sunday 22nd June was the big day for more than 50 fan bloggers, reporters and tweeters as we were invited to discover not only Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy but a special preview meal at Bistrot Chez Rémy and an hourlong presentation on the making of the ride by two of the Imagineers themselves.

Staging an event like this purely for a guest list like us was truly unprecedented by Disneyland Paris, but hopefully its success will see the formula repeated again. Besides word that #Ratatouille briefly trended on Twitter in France, it presented a fantastic opportunity for us to gather as much information and as many photos and videos to prepare our blogs and websites ahead of the official public opening date.

In a sense, for every invitee we could take along another thousand or more diehard fans with us. Keeping the fans “in the loop” like this is good for us and great for Disneyland Paris.

No less than 41 live photos were shared on our @DLPToday Twitter feed, mostly focusing on the restaurant preview with the first pictures of its décor, menus and sample dishes. If you missed them at the time or want to relive it all again, here we go!

Step back to the Day 2 roundup here


Today, 50 fan bloggers and tweeters will preview #Ratatouille: The Adventure – a fantastic move from @Disney_ParisEN!

And now we’re onto questions from the audience! This could be fun! #Ratatouille

They’ve been programming the ride here since 12 Jan this year and still have some very very minor adjustments to make #Ratatouille

The video scenes could be changed, yes, but it’d be a huge effort and risky (so no) #Ratatouille
