During their annual shareholder meeting earlier today, Euro Disney Chairman Philippe Gas announced plans for new attractions and enhancements of Disneyland Paris, including a new attraction based on the hit Disney/Pixar movie “Ratatouille.”
Set to open in Walt Disney Studios Park in 2014, the attraction is is said to take guests into the world of the Oscar-winning Disney/Pixar movie “Ratatouille” which tells the tale of Remy – a talented young rat who dreams of becoming a renowned French chef. Few details of the ride experience have been released, but Disney notes their world-reowned combination of storytelling and state-of-the-art technology will come together in this larger-than-life, Parisian experience.
“Our new family-focused Ratatouille attraction, which is scheduled to open in 2014, symbolises all of the creativity, innovation and emotion that guests associate with a Disneyland Paris experience,” said Gas. “By developing this new Ratatouille attraction, we continue to ensure our guests can experience their favourite Disney stories in memorable ways that only Disney can provide. The theme, which is very français, is a tribute to our capital and the unforgettable characters that make Ratatouille the ideal choice for an attraction that fits perfectly at Disneyland Paris.”
The Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary celebrations have also been extended until September 30, 2013, enhancing the popular “Disney Dreams!” nighttime spectacular with scenes from “The Lion King” and “Brave” as well as bringing Disneyland’s “Glow With the Show” interactive Mickey ear hat technology from Anaheim to Paris, renaming it as “Disney Light’Ears.”
Disney Light’Ears will be sold beginning summer 2013 at select locations throughout Disneyland Paris and online.
