Add this to the list of DVC ownership benefits! Disney Vacation Club members will receive an exclusive “squeak peek” of Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure before its October 1st opening!
Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure will be the newest addition to the France Pavilion in EPCOT. The attraction has been in the works for quite some time, having originally been slated to open in 2020. Due to the COVID-19 shutdowns, Disney was not able to finish it in the original timeframe. The attraction was completed earlier this year, but Disney chose to hold back on the opening of the ride until the 50th Anniversary Celebration to give EPCOT something even more special for guests.
Due to the high anticipation of the attraction, getting the chance to ride this attraction early is absolutely amazing! Disney announced that the Disney Vacation Club preview dates will be September 5th, 17th, and 20th. Select DVC Members received an email with information on how to register for their preview date. Our very own Bee Thaxton from DVC Shop Resales was able to secure opening preview day tickets for this exclusive opportunity. Be sure to visit DVCShop.com to read about Bee’s experience riding Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure on September 5.
The DVC Members who were eligible to attend these previews were those who met the following criteria:
- They had a Walt Disney World Resort reservation booked using their DVC membership
- They booked their reservation no later than August 1st, 2021
- Their travel dates were booked during one of the preview dates
Pre-registration is required to attend the special preview and like all past special previews will likely “sell out” quickly. If your DVC vacation reservation qualifies you for this special preview, make sure to check your email (and junk folder!) for an email from Disney with the registration instructions. Eligible DVC Members can only register via invitation.
DVC members can only make a reservation for this special preview event for the number of guests on their qualifying resort reservation. You will need to provide your valid DVC membership card, photo I.D., and the confirmation email. Valid theme park admission is required to access the event, but a park reservation for EPCOT is not required on the day of the preview to attend.
Disney also announced that Cast Members, as well as Disney World Annual Passholders would be able to preview the attraction before the grand opening date as well. Passholders reported receiving emails today with their exclusive invitations.
Other Special Preview Opportunities
When the DVC Shop team called and spoke with DVC Member Services the agent said that if there were open spaces remaining for the “squeak” peek they will open up reservations to all DVC members. Fingers crossed for those of us who did not receive already secure a preview spot.
