While the progress of Rémy’s Ratatouille adventure appears to have stalled, construction has not yet been completed with the extension of the France pavilion in EPCOT. Our last visit reported great outward progress being finalized. We hopped on the Disney Skyliner to get a new take on the expansion area. Let’s take a look at the current situation.

If the entrance to the current reception area of ​​the France pavilion seems to be completed, the presence of equipment and a tarpaulin indicates the opposite.

This area is beautiful and complete. The last time we photographed this building, the flowers had not been installed in the windows on the second floor. New Auguste Gusteau Street (Rue Gusteau) and Merchant Alley Road signage (Allée des Marchands) has also been installed, indicating the intersection to which guests will be transported from the entrance to the attraction.

The orange net shows us that the construction crews don’t want traffic in this area because the tiles have been freshly laid.

The teams have not finished laying the tile that runs along the sidewalk, thus explaining the net.

There does not appear to be any obvious work located in this rear area.

Construction machinery, a ladder and other materials are stored behind the scenes. Otherwise, the other relevant infrastructure appears to be fully installed.

These elevators continue to be used by construction workers for tasks at each of these structures. Yet the teams organized the area as it opened.

Admittedly, the FastPass +, Single Rider and Standby entrances have been installed at Rémy Ratatouille Adventure, but the ladder and the tarpaulins reflect the need for more work.

The blue building needs flower arrangements on the second floor. You can see the empty window planters. Maybe we will see some new flower decorations soon.

From this perspective, we can see that more tile work needs special attention. A lot of these details are tiny compared to most of the construction we have followed. Outside, construction crews appear to be working on finishing details.

Disney has yet to announce an opening date for the pavilion expansion or for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. However, the way things are going on the outside may not be too far into the future. We will continue to follow this story and keep you updated on the progress, so check back with us regularly for more details.
