Possible Attraction in France pavilion (Epcot) Update - new Attraction Greenlit

In regards to Arts and Holidays, there isn't too much leeway (unless they make Arts open daily).
This year's dates:
  • Arts: January 13th- February 20th
  • F&G: March 1st- May 29th
  • F&W: August 31st- November 13th
  • Holiday: November 24th- December 30th
Now, Disney could push F&G back a week if they wanted to give Arts an extra week, and they could start F&W one week earlier, but that's about it (unless they want to run a festival in the summer- which they technically already are doing with F&W).
Yep, that's a pretty packed schedule. Aside from the summer months, we really just have a few weeks off between festivals while they get everything set up. I really like the variety as opposed to a more "permanent" feeling. Having the seasonal treats and drinks are nice.

Holiday was just 5 booths. Wonder if they'll expand that or if they were just there for the crowds. During peak seasons, WDW puts out more food carts to handle the extra people, and so, the holiday booths were just classy food carts.

I'll like to see Arts go daily to give me a chance to experience it.

It looks like the 24th is the earliest Disney will go for the Holiday festival (day after Thanksgiving), but I'm sure more booths could be set out. If Alpine Haus returns, it might be moved (was in between Morocco and France last year) if construction for Ratatouille is occurring.

So it looks like the France pavilion will have:
  • A brand new ride
  • Some type of film
  • Two table service restaurants
  • A counter service restaurant
  • An ice cream/sorbet parlor
  • A perfume shop
  • A wine shop
  • Two little alcohol/crepe kiosks
And a Gateway and gondola station...

From what I have seen DSNY on YouTube just recycles any rumour as fact... primarily from this forum.
We all hear rumors from different places all across the internet, all I do is bring the rumours to those who are not savvy enough to enter the world of the Disney forums on a daily basis. Overall at the end of the end, more educated Disney Fans are better Disney Fans, in my books. :)

I personally feel anyone reporting on Disney (and really any topic for that matter) should carefully vet the rumors before posting them to prevent the spread of rumors that don't have solid provenance. I have seen many times when someone will post a rumor here and talk about how it must have credibility because it's on multiple sites, but when you trace the rumor you find it leads back to one less then reliable source.

The News and Rumors section has become flooded with ridiculous threads (especially over the last few months), that have no reason to be posted other than the OP's desire to create it. Many have no credibility behind them and are neither news or rumor. Some threads are just questions. How does that constitute news or rumor? I get it that News and Rumors is like the "cool kids table at lunch" and people want their thread to be seen, but it needs to stop.

I am sure the mods are taking names.

Just think, you could be enjoying a Florida summer where it's hot and downpour at the same time.
Where I am in NY it was hotter than FL for a few days, we just didnt have rain. The humidity here can be just as bad.. The big difference is that in a week we will probably start to see temps in the 50s, or lower, and raining. Its those days that I would take Florida heat and humidity all day long. In fact, I just got a promotion where I am based from my home. I am absolutely going to attempt the move to FL in the next few years. Not to orlando though... That would be silly.

I have a question regarding Paris Ratatouille and depending on the answer I will also have a question regarding Epcot's version.

I have gone to DLP in 2013, 2016, and 2019.

In 2013 the ride was not open but I rode it many times in both 2016 and 2019.

My question is regarding the vehicle, specifically its movement. I rode the ride in 2016 and was blown away, however, in 2019, while still impressed by the ride, I felt something was missing.

In 2019 my first ride through lacked the tapping rat effect, but in later ones it was present. However, I remember in 2016 the Rats would move in front of the screens, like tilt. Despite this memory, every time I rode it the rats simply parked in front of the screens and sat there. Did I imagine the ride vehicle movements?

I know Epcot is supposed to be a near-perfect clone, but if Paris does lack a tilting system on the ride vehicle, will one be added to Epcot?

The lack of movement, imagined or not, was profound, and greatly detracted from the screen-heavy attraction.
