Was there any mention of a timeline or projected date of completion for Rat?
From this thread (and see the second post for a timeline): http://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/rumor-and-upcoming-timeline-tracker.926402/
the Ratatouille Ride as it exists in Paris has beat out the Beauty and the Beast ride as the new attraction for the French Pavilion. This is Greenlit. Its installation has been pushed sooner because GotG was pushed later. [confirmed at D23 2017] Opens in 2020, 1-2Q.
the placement of the Rat ride would not necessitate any changes to IdF or any of France's restaurants or shops, however, that doesn't mean a separate decision could affect them, e.g, updated the IdF [here]
there is no demolition or connection through any of the existing France pavilion buildings... access is around the pavilion, not through it [here]
Some info on the original ride that might affect the new clone.
Embarrassing. Shameful, really. Unless you mean 2019, which surely you do not.
It should have been open for a few months three years from now.
So, was the arrival of Body Wars when they toned down Maelstrom or sometime later? Is there any footage/photos of the "original" Maelstrom?
I've no idea. I rode both in 1990 and got quite damp in Norway.
I got drenched on Norway yesterday lol, first the seats are already soaked so you have no choice but to sit in it, then the entire front end of the boats now dip into the water after the flume and they get flooded. That never use to happen. So for those of you who sit in the front, be ready.
Backstage survey markings are now in place.
So Epcot will have gone 4 years, from 2016-2020 without a new addition by that point, not including upgrades. That's awful for a park in such a state.
Will we see changes to the land/Seas/Imagination beforehand?
Not at this time.
Hmm so literally nothing new to market for the park in 2018/2019? I'm guessing they're hoping Star Wars does all the work and gives them an excuse to do nowt in this park?
Maybe the UK attraction, albeit perhaps only a C level ride could make it by 2019.
No, not at the moment.
With the apparent lack of decision over an IP, do you think Ratatouille will open before whatever goes into the UK pavilion?
Currently yes. Just.
Marni, if the Coco overlay gets done. Should we expect it to be open before Ratatouille then?
I don't believe so. Guests should see the Space TSR, followed by Rat and then a slew of other things.
Thanks, I can't wait to hear more about those other things. By Space TSR are you referring to the Restaurant? Also do you believe they might be aiming for Day of the Dead 2020 for the possible Coco overlay? That would be amazing in my opinion.
