There are big changes coming to EPCOT’s newest attraction this Monday. Effective Jan. 10, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure begins offering a standby queue for guests looking to enjoy the ride.
When Remy’s opened back on Oct. 1, 2021, guests used a virtual queue to secure their place in line. But Walt Disney World is taking one of its newest attractions in an old-fashioned direction, returning to the ol’ stand-in-line-and-wait route.
Does Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure Have a Lightning Lane?
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure is one of eight rides in Walt Disney World that offers an Individual Lightning Lane. That means access to this Lightning Lane is not included with Genie+.
Instead, you’ll need to purchase Individual Lightning Lane access for the ride via the Genie app. Prices will vary based on day of the week, time, and other factors. Back in October, our own Rain Blanken pegged that price around $11 on a Saturday.
To grab your Individual Lightning Lane access, you’ll need to jump into the Genie+ app on your smartphone. There, you can grab the next available Lightning Lane spot for Remy’s or any of the other eight eligible rides.
Keep in mind, though, that you’re limited to just two Individual Lightning Lane purchases per visit.
How to Get a Good Spot in the Remy’s Standby Queue
Standing in line and waiting is, for better or worse, just part of the Walt Disney World experience. But there are some steps you can take to cut down on your wait in the Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure standby queue.
When it comes to lining up, timing is everything. Navigating the ebbs and flows of WDW is an art. If you’re visiting during the school year, you’ll probably experience lighter crowds on a weekday in the morning or early afternoon than you will during spring or summer break.
👉 Another great tip? Make sure you’re riding with folks you love. Making memories at WDW is a comprehensive experience, and that includes having meaningful conversations while you wait to board your next ride.
Will Remy’s Go Back to a Virtual Queue?
Mallory Heinz Ledet, the public affairs communications manager for EPCOT and Magic Kingdom, notes that virtual queues are deployed as needed to cut down on wait times and keep lines moving.
So depending on how things go, Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure could move from a standby queue back to virtual sometime in the future.
If or when that does happen, guess where you’ll get the scoop? Where else? Right here at WDW Magazine.
