    Awesome, Epcot is in dire need of attractions. Each WS Pavillion needs a ride in my opinion.

    Is the concept art showing the view along the current back of the pavilion?

    Better question is, what is the fate of IDF?

    The backside of the pavilion matches up to the concept art pretty well, so I would assume that Impressions is safe, or at least the showbuilding is. New ride in the expansion plot between France and Morocco. Capture.PNG

    So the name of the attraction is Ratatouille: Kitchen Calamity? That's what the concept art suggests, but I'm not sure if that's just a working title.

    I don't particularly like Ratatouille the movie, but since WS needs more rides, I guess this is good news.

    Excited. This is a good ride... It's always first on my list to ride when in Paris.

    It will make Frozen look like a B ticket.

    Yes. There was also a water management permit for this area.

    The backside of the theater is shown in the art. There is no need to remove it for this project.

    That was the original title for France too, so it could change again.

    I was hoping for B&tB but oh well. Should be fun.

    Bye bye Epcot Center :(

    Happy we're not losing anything for this.

    I just hope they add something else to do back there.
    So it's not just a long walk to and from without nothing else along the way.

    A little shop, a little garden, fake store fronts, anything

    They do but I guess rides actually base on the country is too much to ask.

    As much as I don't want more IPs in Epcot at least we are not losing a classic Epcot attraction for this one such as Maelstrom or EEA.
    It looks good and although I haven't personally tried the Paris version most people I know who have been on it say it is amazing so I expect good things!
