Virtual Queue (paused January 2022)
On January 10, 2022, the virtual queue was paused for Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure at Epcot making way for a Standby line.
In addition to the Standby line, you can also purchase entry via the pay-per-ride Lightning Lane option. (Sometimes it’s also available with Genie+, depending on the time of year.)
Individual Lightning Lane selections are not included with Disney Genie+ (the new paid FastPass service at both Walt Disney World and Disneyland). These are sold separately and are pay-per-use.
Pricing for paid individual Lightning Lane options varies by date, attraction, and park.
The boarding group process can always be implemented again when Disney feels like it’s needed. Read more about how the virtual queue worked for Remy’s Ratatouille.
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure was confirmed at the 2017 D23 Expo. At the time of the announcement, Disney also said the attraction would open in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in 2021.
The attraction was originally set to open in summer 2020, but due to the pandemic the opening date was understandably affected.

On March 9, it was announced that Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will open on Oct. 1, 2021.
The ride officially opened on Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, Oct. 1, 2021.
