    It's been a long while since I have seen Impressions de France film. Is there any CGI in film. Not sure when that technology came out.

    No CGI. All shot the old fashioned way.

    Go see it again. The digital projection is stunning.

    That is good to hear. Then I think they should keep this one for quality purpose. I am not trying to derail a thread but when I saw the new Soarin' Around the World, for me I was not impressed. Too much CGI or to looked like it.

    If you're like me and you can't make it to the park at the moment, there's



    There's also a nice playlist that has full-length tracks from the movie:

    In short, "a lot". But it would also open up additional land around it/north of it.

    Can we settle on a different shorthand for Ratatouille? Every time I see Rat, or RAT, I spend numerous brain cycles trying to break out the acronym, which it isn't.

    How about Rata2E?

    How about Remy?

    Like, "as a film, Remy is a good fit for World Showcase if we must have IP. However, my concerns over Remy the ride come from my feeling that, while a great ride, it is the weakest use of LPS we have seen. In fact, it is an inappropriate use of LPS as the cars largely follow each other around from screen to screen. LPS really shines when multiple cars can explore and interact with massive sets in different ways."

    I'm also amenable to Remy's Totally Zany Adventure, or RTZA.

    I get nervous when you tell people to go see an attraction. Will it be closing soon?

    I hate Disney World. Don't go and screw up France. Both the film and the rat can fit in the pavilion. Show some class.

    They can. That's one option. Sadly there's now also others.

    the film is gorgeous, I have seen it a hundred times and still go every time I am in EPCOT... Would be nice if they would add the Ratatouille attraction on the other side between France and Morocco.. so that they could have both the fantasy attraction and the real France travelogue.

    If they remove IDF, corporate can expect the French Revolution 2.0.

    If Impressions stays (and I hope it does), and the other WS plans come true, there will actually be a net-gain at Epcot.

    I'm a little in shock. :eek:

    Ratatouille (+1)
    Small UK attraction (+1)
    New WS pavilion and attraction (+1)
    Another potential WS pavilion and attraction (+1)

    We're looking at a minimal 3 new attractions that aren't replacing anything. That's incredible.
