Didn't see a thread about it, so I figured I'd post.

Disney has agreed to finance DLPR 150 million to expand the studios park, most of which will most likely go to the long-rumored Ratatouille dark ride.

For an Orlando not on this...if TDO had half a brain (they don't), they'd partner with DLP on the ride and clone it to World Showcase or DHS.

World Showcase needs a ride like this. With their love of cloning rides to cut on costs, I have no idea why we won't be getting it :mean:

Yep, albeit Impressions of France is an impressive film, I think a ride would be much better.

France right now is probably the best Pavillion in terms of food in the whole park a ride would easily make it the best OVERALL pavillion.

Impressions could stay, I believe. There's room behind the pavilion that can be worked with, if I'm not mistaken.

Would not the country of France need to penny up on such a project being built in Epcot? I was under the impression that the world showcase is financed by the countries themselves.

Would Disney prefer that? I'm sure they would.

I don't think they need to. If Disney wanted to spend the money (HA!), then they could do it on their own.

^ that was the old epcot i think morocco is the only pavilion that is country sponsored.
Sorry 'bout that, you are correct... private companies sponsor the others if at all. I wonder if the focus is country specific companies?

Where is it stated that the Rat isn't coming to France as well?

Well, it's never stated that it isn't coming to World Showcase or Hollywood Studios. But there's never been a real legitimate rumor on it making it stateside.

Now, is this $150 million in American Disney Dollars? Because apparently that gets you an omnimover these days.
