Every time I watch the Disney●Pixar film “Ratatouille,” it totally makes me want to visit Paris. As early as next year, fans of this film in particular will have a whole new reason to make the trip, as it was just announced that a new attraction based on this film is in the works for Disneyland Paris.
Phillipe Gas, President & CEO Euro Disney, announced this week that this family-focused attraction will open at the resort’s Walt Disney Studios Park in 2014. The film tells the tale of Remy, a cuisine-loving rat, who dreams of becoming a talented French chef. According to Gas, Disneyland Paris is the perfect setting for such an attraction:
“By developing this new ‘Ratatouille’ attraction, we continue to ensure our guests can experience their favorite Disney stories in memorable ways that only Disney can provide,” he said. “The theme, which is very français, is a tribute to the capital and the unforgettable characters that make ‘Ratatouille’ the ideal choice for an attraction that fits perfectly at Disneyland Paris.”
But that wasn’t the only exciting news out of Disneyland Paris this week. It was also announced that the resort’s 20th anniversary celebration has been extended through September 30, 2013, and during this time, Disneyland Park’s nighttime spectacular Disney Dreams! will be enriched with two new scenes from the movies “The Lion King” and “Brave.” Even better, guests will soon be able to enjoy the show while wearing interactive Disney Light’Ears, which change color in time with the show’s lights and music.
