Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure

Walt Disney Studios Remy's Ratatouille Adventure

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure (known in French as Ratatouille: L’Aventure Totalement Toquée de Rémy) is one of the best rides at Walt Disney Studios. 

The ride was completed in 2014. When you approach the ride, it looks as if you are walking through a plaza in the middle of Paris. The exterior of the ride looks just like Gusteau’s restaurant. When you enter the ride, you’ll notice that you’ve been “shrunk” to the size of a rat.

Guests of any height can ride this attraction, so it’s a great option for families with young children. We used Disney Premier Access to skip the line, and it was well worth the money in our opinion. We were able to walk right on. 

Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is a trackless 4D ride. You can’t see the tracks in front of you as you glide across the floor. You’ll sit in a rat-shaped vehicle, and you won’t follow the car in front of you at all. So, there is no way to know exactly where you are headed next! That was one of our favorite aspects about this ride. We twirled effortlessly as we glided from room to room. 

As you move from room to room, you’ll be “chased” away by the kitchen staff. The attraction uses large 3D screens that are reminiscent of Soarin’.

Once you complete the ride, you’ll exit the rat car and be able to see behind glass panes guests dining at Bistrot Chez Remy. (This part reminds us of how Captain Jacks is located within view of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland Paris.)

After the ride was built in Disneyland Paris, its equivalent was built in Walt Disney World in Florida. We haven’t been to the Florida one yet, but we sure enjoyed this ride at Disneyland Paris! We found the ride to be interesting, fun, and very smooth. I’m a bit prone to motion sickness so I did get a little dizzy with the 3D screens, but I enjoyed it so much that I would definitely go again.

Our Review of Bistrot Chez Remy

Bistro Chez Remy at Walt Disney Studios

Bistrot Chez Remy is a restaurant located adjacent to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure. When you enter the restaurant, you’ll first notice the decor. Everything is extra-large, so it’ll appear as if you’ve shrunk down to the size of a mouse. Giant plates serve as dividers between booths, paper umbrellas tower over tables, and bottle caps are used for chairs. I really liked the giant string lights overhead.

We highly recommend that you make reservations well in advance if you want to dine at this restaurant. We booked our trip to Disneyland Paris last-minute, and unfortunately when we looked there were no reservations available. However, we recommend that you check back frequently. While we were at the park, we noticed that dinner reservations became available the next day. We quickly made reservations and we were excited to be able to visit this restaurant!

Bistro Chez Remy at Walt Disney Studios in Paris

The menu is all based on French classic cuisine. We ordered a prix fixe menu that came with a starter, a main course, and a dessert. 

Menu at Bistro Chez Remy

Here’s what I ordered:

  • Starter: Spelt and Mushroom Salad with Garlic and Parsley, Kitchen Garden Vinaigrette
  • Main Course: Grilled Steak, Ratatouille, and French Fries
  • Dessert: Bistro Delight, Flaky Pastry, Crispy Vanilla Cream Puffs, Whipped Cream, and Red Berries

Here’s what my husband ordered:

  • Starter: Duck with Thyme Flower and Pistachio Pâté en Croute, Fig Jam
  • Main Course: Grilled Steak, Ratatouille, and French Fries
  • Dessert: Chocolate Lava Cake with a Choc-Milk Caramel Centre, Custard

And our kiddo ordered:

  • Starter: Chicken Rillettes with Toast
  • Main Course: Linguine Pasta with Tomato Sauce and Ratatouille
  • Dessert: Fromage Blanc with Fresh Fruit

Personally, none of us really enjoyed the starters. However, we really enjoyed our main courses. The grilled steak was perfectly cooked and expertly seasoned. They gave us the option of having a sauce on the side, so we asked our server for his recommendation. He highly recommended the melted brie sauce, and it was the perfect pairing. We definitely recommend that you order that sauce! We were also really impressed with the desserts. Each one was fabulous!

We felt that this restaurant was worth the money for both the experience and the food. It was one of our favorite dining experiences at Disneyland Paris.

We recommend that you bring the following things while you’re at Disneyland Paris:

  • Cell phone charger: Pack a fully-charged cell-phone battery pack.
  • Water bottle: Bring your own water bottle and fill it up throughout the day.
  • Ponchos: Make sure you’re prepared if rain comes your way.
  • Sunscreen: We couldn’t find sunscreen within the parks, so make sure to bring your own.
  • Hand sanitizer: Thousands of people touch the rides every day, so it’s a good idea to sanitize your hands often.
  • Disney clothes: Many people dress up in Disney-themed clothes while at the parks. Be sure to pack a few things to wear, and save room to for souvenirs as well!
