DLP WDS Ratatouille Ride Pictorial Update !

There we go for a fantastic pictorial update about the works on the WDS Ratatouille site as there is plenty of new things new to see, and all this thanks to great pictures from Max Fan, D&M contributor and DLPWelcome webmaster! As you can see above the awaited Gusteau's sign is now in place at the top of one building, and it's not the only sign in place as we will see.

But first, let's have a little stop nearby as Crush Coaster is now closed for refurbishment with changes to come in the normal waiting line and they will add a single rider line, too, which is good news. It is expected to re-open on April 11.

The rocks outside are also being repainted in the original blue color.

Okay, let's move to Ratatouille! Lot of things have changed since last week specially on the Ratatouille plaza. The first big thing is indeed the Gusteau's sign which for sue will have a night lighting.

Nearby, the last scaffoldings are down on Remy plaza revealing the great work of theming that the Imagineers have done on the facades.

They've also started to add trees on the Parisian street leading to the plaza. well as giving the final touch on some of the facades.

Let's have now a closer look at Remy plaza without the scaffoldings!

The fountain at the center is going up little by little...

...and new lampposts have been installed over the Fast Pass entrance and "Chez Rémy" restaurant.

Now, they've also put in place the "Chez Rémy" restaurant sign!

The main entrance of the attraction has now new installations fixed vertically on the facade and the base for the upcoming attraction sign is also in place. New guardrail on the windows above, too.

On the other hand, nothing has changed yet on the hiding of the backstage building which for now we still can se,e as well as on the covered market structure.

New doors have been installed for the rest rooms access on the Fast Pass building.

Let's have a closer look to the facades and others decors elements and see how wonderful the theming is.

On the upcoming new WDS guide book the Ratatouille area will be added. Soft-openings for the attraction are expected for the end of June.

Looking closer at the guide for June; I just realized with the addition of the new Ratatouille area, the park is now one big hidden Mickey.
