Leaving EPCOT now, came to ride Remy mostly. I had only been on once prior and had to wait roughly five hours or so after getting my boarding pass. Rest of my group had never been on yet because of the boarding group hassle.

Long story short, being able to wait Standby was such a welcome thing. Line had a 60 minute wait around 7:00 and waited 65. Line moved at a pretty decent pace. I enjoyed it more this time, but still think it’s a pretty mediocre for this type of ride. My group said it reminded them of a Universal ride :lol:
A car the rides around looking at screens, something goes wrong, and you get water splashed on you?

Yup. And it wouldn't rank that high among them. There's something about the pacing that's just a little off.

It's closest comp is Transformers and it gets blown out of the water by that, which in turn gets blown out of the water by Spider-Man (imo). The story is just pretty weak, not getting Patton Oswalt back for the ride was a big miss, and the mix of English/French, while fitting for the DLPR and I guess thematically for the France pavilion, didn't work for me in the ride.

I'm almost certain Oswalt did return for the ride. It sounds a lot like him.


I do agree that the English/French hybrid is jarring and doesn't really work here.

Yeah, I was wrong. I thought the wikipedia page hd said the soundalikes were used, but I was mistaken.

Just rode it and that was... not great. The French/English voice track was weird and made the plot harder to follow, and the ride itself felt like Transformers without any energy, cohesion, or movement. Simply going from big screen to big screen on an empty black floor with nothing particularly exciting to hook you in. Worth it as a 15 minute wait type of experience but as a new attraction for the 50th with a 90 minute wait... hell nah lol.

Ratatouille will be included in general lightning lane for until Early August, meaning no extra upcharge on top of the base upcharge. It will eventually go back to being individual Lightning Lane, though.
