Thursday 10th July 2014: Disneyland Paris announces Ratatouille ride opening date

Tuesday, 15th April 2014 at 17:59

Disneyland Paris Ratatouille ride opening date 10th July 2014

Disneyland Paris has just announced the long-awaited opening date of Ratatouille: The Adventure – L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy: Thursday, 10th July 2014.

Sensibly, the resort has chosen a date just slightly in advance of the official French national day — Bastille Day on Monday 14th July — to officially inaugurate the huge new dark ride and restaurant in Walt Disney Studios Park.

From 10th July, guests will officially be able to enjoy the attraction and its adjoining restaurant, Le Bistrot Chez Rémy, in Toon Studio at the second park.

However, this will likely follow a traditional period of “soft opening” lasting as long as a few weeks, during which time Disney’s newest E-Ticket attraction will be opened to guests for limited trials to test and adjust any operational or technical bugs.

The date of 10th July has only recently been associated with the development, which up until now has steadfastly been promoted only as opening vaguely in “Summer 2014”.

Most rumours pointed to 14th July being the most appropriate date, but it’s likely Disneyland Paris decided the Thursday before what will be an incredibly busy Monday, with the parks already at saturation, is a more sensible operational choice.

The announcement was made with a brand new teaser video, below…

Along with the all-important date, for the first time ever the video reveals a number of glimpses inside the huge new Ratatouille showbuilding, allowing a look at the attraction’s physical scenery, giant props and even trackless ride vehicles.

  • A soft opening would be great. I am here now, but I think I am too far out to even hope for a quick peek

  • Any castmembers doing ride previews yet or hints of a soft opening?

    • It sounds like there will be a Cast Member preview day on 17th June. The press opening event is on the weekend of 21st/22nd June, so soft openings immediately after those dates would seem very likely (but not confirmed!).

  • I am at e park at the end of June is there any chance that the soft opening will be available then for park users or is it just for specialist guests?

    I have read on a reliable sourced social media group. That annuel passport holders may attend the attraction before anyone else.
    I don’t know if this is true. However I sincearley hope that phillipe gas. Will allow his best customers to ride it first.

  • Any hidden mickey spots yet?
