News Remy's Ratatouille Adventure coming to Epcot

I mean MMRR probably has similar capacity, right? I'm thinking about those switchbacks in the courtyard at DHS and wondering where on earth they could go in epcot. Does it cross the path and block the international gateway? Or go right and block the entire France pavillion? And can you fit queue and exit traffic, and access to creperie down that access path?

This was discussed dozens of pages back and it’s a real problem.

Most of the queue is that coved area next to the crêperie and it is all switchbacks.
Depending on when the crêperie opens, the line could go around the building and then out the service gate backstage a la Star Wars land. I know that’s not the best show, but if they need room to physical distant it could be a temporary option. They could also just make the whole courtyard and path leading up to it a switchback queue and just leave an exit path. If they got real creative they could use the france islands as more over flow queue and just have to block the promenade every so often to get people across, like during parades....

The virtual queue solves this.

Not the biggest fan of the ROTR virutal queue, but it does what its supposed to do.
You could easly move the entrance to the virtual queue for Remy to either the Crêperie or even the arch way and have more room then ROTR.

Maybe it's just semantics, but the post above was from someone who said that they had a friend who was being trained, as in currently right now.

Marni then acknowledged that they were aware that CM's had been trained (as in the past), but then added a comment about redeployment.

I was just trying to clarify what was meant by redeployment--to the Remy attraction (as a current posting now that they've had training on it) or from Remy to another attraction (presumably so Remy-trained CM's could work at other attractions until the new ride is officially opened.)

The friend mentioned in the first comment who is currently being trained could still be redeployed to another attraction after training is complete, so the question is still open as to what was meant by "...and redeployed currently".
@pdude81 said “his” post just above - meaning Martin’s post just above. This one:


As far as I’m aware not right at the moment.


So the trained staff are not available, therefore have been redeployed elsewhere.

edit: I should have read on, I see Martin confirmed it.

Virtual queues create such a hassle. If MMRR doesn’t need one, neither does Rat.

MMRR also has a massive park hub area in front of it to wind people through. If Rat uses a virtual queue I would imagine it’s simply because there’s just nowhere else for people to go. I don’t care for them either but I could see it.

I feel like this area could be used. Issues would be the stairs down to the landing, getting people across the promenade, and having to move the food&wine kiosk. Also having to get across the line to get to the stroller parking area as you exit, unless you make stroller parking corral part of the queue and have people leave their strollers closer to that canopy area by the entrance so you drop on one side and pick up on the other.

edit: this was just to get an idea of where the line could go, not an exact layout. One of my previous roles before being laid off was to deal with queue management and location flow, so was just putting out an idea.

They have the line mapped out already...

I imagine this ride and most future big rides will use virtual que tech, as it allows people to spend more time walking around and potentialy buying stuff instead of standing in a line. This will cut down drastically on line length if they do it correctly.

This has been discussed many times, but that's simply not feasible.

Just think about how busy the parks get already in summer and how the walkways are jammed full of people. Now imagine adding several thousand more people to those walkways. That's what you'd get if every major ride was a virtual queue. The parks don't have enough space to do that.

Plus, if Disney was planning for this to use a virtual queue, there would have been no reason to bother building a traditional queue. That space could have been used for something else.

yeah thats true, but maybe they will keep capicity limits down for a while (couple of years) and implement it during those times while the ride is new and super in demand (not that it wont ever be not in demand but ya know what i mean) im all for the virtual que and ride reservation style system for major e ticket rides if done in a way thats.....good lol. Perhaps they do like RotR with a reservation/virtual que setup, but leave an actual que line for people to use that didnt get a reservation in time. Then alternate reserve and in line customers onto the ride? That way you can still get a chance to ride the ride even if you dont reserve a spot, it just means standing in line for a couple hours instead of 30 mins
