The new family attraction, based on the Disney/Pixar movie about a rat who dreams of becoming a top chef in Paris, is set to open in 2014 in the Walt Disney Studios Park.
Gas said, “Our new family-focused Ratatouille attraction, which is scheduled to open in 2014, symbolises all of the creativity, innovation and emotion that guests associate with a Disneyland Paris experience.
“By developing this new Ratatouille attraction, we continue to ensure our guests can experience their favourite Disney stories in memorable ways that only Disney can provide.
“The theme, which is very français, is a tribute to our capital and the unforgettable characters that make Ratatouille the ideal choice for an attraction that fits perfectly at Disneyland Paris.”
The announcement was made at Euro Disney’s annual shareholder meeting. It was also revealed that Disneyland Paris’ 20th Anniversary celebrations will be extended until 30 September 2013. This will enable more guests a chance to enjoy the ‘Disney Dreams!’ show which will be enhanced with scenes from The Lion King and Brave as well as a further interactive innovation, Disney Light’Ears. Available for purchase from summer 2013 at selected locations throughout Disneyland Paris and online, Disney Light’Ears will change colour in time with the ‘Disney Dreams!’ show.
Disneyland Paris achieved record-breaking attendance of 16 million visits in 2012.
