IAAPA is the global trade association for the attractions industry. The association typically hold its annual IAAPA Expo in Orlando in the fall, allowing attendees to see the latest in attractions technology and innovation. But the coronavirus pandemic forced the in-person expo to be canceled, and in its place, a virtual conference is being held.

One of the attractions for which D'Amaro provided an update was Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, which is under construction in the France pavilion at Epcot.

The attraction, which is based on the 2007 Disney-Pixar film “Ratatouille,” was initially set to open this summer, but then the pandemic hit.

When construction resumed, fans wondered when the ride would make its debut.

During Monday’s presentation, D’Amaro revealed that Remy’s is slated to open next year.

“Coming in 2021, we’re still on track to open Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure, and we’re looking forward to seeing you race through Gusteau’s famous Parisian kitchen aboard a trackless ride vehicle in a thrilling 3D chase,” he said.

An exact opening date was not given.

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is part of Epcot’s multi-year refurbishment project, which also includes a new nighttime show and the Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind coaster.
