ORLANDO, Fla – Guests soaring on Walt Disney World’s skyliner system are getting a first look at a new addition for “Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure,” which is set to open at Epcot’s France pavilion this summer.

Disney leaders said ride construction hit a new milestone as the sign for Gusteau’s restaurant was installed ahead of the ride’s opening.

Based on Disney and Pixar’s hit film “Ratatouille,” the new family-friendly attraction will invite guests to shrink down to the scale of a rat for a culinary adventure with Chef Remy, Disney described on its blog.

Theme park bloggers are already talking about seeing the sign from Epcot’s International Gateway entrance.

Check out the photo below.

Disney shared a photo of the ride vehicle in December and said the ride will function on a trackless system.
