Remy's Ratatouille Adventure DROPS the "Virtual Queue"!
Since the launch last year - Remy's Ratatouille Adventure in EPCOT has utilized a "Virtual Queue" which required guests to get online at 7 a.m. (on vacation!) and snag a spot for this cute ride.
That's changing on January 10 - this attraction will go to a standard standby queue. You can still purchase an "Individual Lightning Lane" for this attraction (prices vary) if you're dead set in avoiding a line.
John's Take: This ride is cute - but I'm not sure it's worth the cost of the Individual Lightning Lane. The attraction itself relies heavily on view screens - so if you get seasick or carsick, this may not be the ride for you. Again: it's super cute but I'd be comfortable with a short standby line to ride!
Escape To Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa This Spring (and save up to 20%)!
This spring, you can escape to a magical place with special offers. You can discover your own legend at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa—experiencing sparkling pools, lazy river rides and even spotting some favorite Disney Characters.

Next, to kick-off the adventure, families can experience fun activities like paddleboarding or snorkeling in the Resort’s secluded cove.
You can embark on a complimentary high-tech scavenger hunt on the Menehune Adventure Trail. Come say aloha and pose for a photo with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse or cool down with a refreshing Mickey shave ice. In the evening, experience KA WA’A, A Lū‘au, an enchanting journey of Hawaiian history through song, dance, storytelling and cuisine.
It's a spectacular destination ﬁlled with moments of wonder that only Disney can offer!
